Good Sunday morning to you! The winner of the porcelain giveaway will be announced on Tuesday since the sale ends today. Hope you are having a nice weekend. Here it’s cold but no snow, so I am not going to complain:) The snow we got on Thursday was a doozy. Husband had a SEVEN HOUR COMMUTE home and it took my son almost FIVE hours to drive from Long Island to NYC (23 miles)!! It was total madness and hopefully not a sign of what is to come this winter! Today headed into the city with my warmest winter coat and hitting a much anticipated Broadway show, American Son with Kerry Washington. Really looking forward to seeing it. Last show I saw was Dear Evan Hansen and it was unbelievable. Hope you are enjoying a nice weekend. Can’t believe this week is Thanksgiving! I will be busy tomorrow preparing and getting things ready, I am sure with the rest of the world. Onward with my Seven on Sunday……. ___________________________________________ 1 A ROLLING PIN I NEED. I am admittedly so not a baker, first because that kind of access to decadent treats would do me in and secondly we are lucky to have many wonderful bakeries within a few miles so when I do need dessert, its a hop and skip away however there really is something incredibly nostalgic about baking cookies over the holidays, don’t you think? When I saw this genius rolling pin, I knew I had to share it with you. I actually ordered one for someone on my list who loves to bake and am patting myself on the back for finding this most unique gift, one of the few baking items I am quite sure she does not have it. Is this not the coolest thing!! Click here to find our more. 2. ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY. I have been a few times to Arlington National Cemetery and actually love DC (much to my sons dismay when he was in college there, I came up with all kinds of excuses to visit him:). I am sure many of you have been as well and there is no question it is what we would all agree to be “sacred ground” and a place to show respect to all the brave who have served our country. The tomb of the unknown is especially meaningful but only until recently when I caught a part of a mini documentary on it did I fully understand exactly what happens there. If our world could stand in one place at one time to come together this is one place that I think could unify us. A place where politics and differences are put aside and humanity stands alone. The facts on this short video are truly amazing and awe inspiring, gives me a whole new understanding and respect for the job this men and women do. 3.

This video is the stuff Christmas dreams are made of and to me, exactly what Christmas should look like. I found this video and was in an instant, put into the holiday spirit! Nothing like a New England Christmas. From Boston to Maine to Vermont, this is incredibly well done and just so beautiful. I could (and will) watch it over and over. Makes me want to go back in time, when life churned at a slower pace and people said hello to each other, etc…… so worth sharing because it just makes you feel good:) 7. SUNDAY’S SURVEY. Imagine this, I was at the post office the other day and it was me and 3 other people in line. Suddenly this very LOUD lady waltzes in and lets it be known to the entire post office she has arrived. She was on her phone and was having a very “lively” conversation. We all tuned to stare, it was that loud. I was sure that the minute she got in line she would hang up but nooooo she kept right on talking so loud it was actually offensive. Laughing and carrying on about some nonsense, blah, blah blah. The woman in front of her turns around and gives her a stare that could melt icebergs but did that stop her? Nope! She just kept going on and was oblivious to all around her. I could tell the person in front of her was just about to say something but then got called. I normally don’t get that offended about things like that but even I was really getting annoyed, I was a second away from saying something but thankfully it was my turn. It was just so rude and inconsiderate to all around her. How would you handle? How would you have handled this situation? __________________________________________ That’s a wrap for today. Anything here get your interest? Hope you enjoyed the post and hope you have a wonderful Sunday and end to your week. Is anyone else out there feeling like they cannot believe Thanksgiving is next week! Oh boy, lots of work to do! Thanks for stopping in, until next time…….
