As always, you may answer these questions in your own post or in the comments section!

This 5 Question Friday was brought to you by:

On to the questions!

1. Is there a special dish you prepare that you are famous for? Not yet…I have made Macaroni & Cheese a couple of times in past years, but I didn’t cook anything this year…I’m good at cooking, but I don’t like to, so I avoid it when I can

2. Are you (did you) go Black Friday shopping ? Sort of…..I went with my mom, sister and one of my nieces after 8 this morning to look around. There wasn’t really anything I was wanting and I didn’t have any money anyways so I didn’t buy anything….all the stores were pretty calm as well cause everyone else around here seemed to have gone last night and none of us were in the mood to go then…..I wish they would switch Black Friday back the way it was and stop trying to take over Thanksgiving…..

3. What are your strangest holiday traditions? I don’t think any of my traditions are strange, but that’s because they are the ones I have grown up with….to someone else, they might be strange but I honestly don’t know any that are strange to me

4. Pecan or pumpkin pie? Neither, I’m not a big pie eater….and I rarely eat sweets except for maybe a few days out of the month

5. When will you put up your Christmas tree? Undecided….Living in an apartment with just my husband, there’s not really anyone else to see the tree and I’m not sure where I would put it where it’s not in the way….so I haven’t decided whether I will put it up or not…..I don’t think it matters much either way…I can still be in the Christmas spirit with or without a tree.
Giving Thanks Day 25: Today, I give thanks for something I have already given thanks for, but for a different reason. This past week my car has been going crazy acting up and the night before Thanksgiving, it wouldn’t even start, and I had to borrow my mom’s car. Today my dad found out what was wrong with it: A 4 cylinder car working on 2 cylinders. He switched out some spark plugs and did some other stuff and voila! Finally seems to be working good again! Oh, and my car is a 1997 so it’s 14 years old…..which apparently, according to the guy who diagnosed the problem, is unusual to see nowadays where people get newer cars every few years. For a 14 yr. old car, it’s been pretty good to me and still running well. The plugs I had on my car were 11 years old and this was the first time they messed up….and my car is a Mercury Tracer…made by Ford, so I guess not ALL Ford vehicles are junk, huh? 🙂
SO….Today, I am thankful my car is fixed, running smoothly again, and I no longer have to worry about being without a vehicle. YAY! 🙂

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
