    It was a good day.

    Went to the club for a wonderful brunch with Saadia and Dave and the boys. Sayeed and Shelley with their boys were in her home up in Chicago suburbs. The food was excellent, and we were in a special area of the club without too much of a crowd. Some of you have probably seen the picture below on the facebook which Saadia has posted.


    Saadia had asked us to come to her home in the afternoon, to share some snacks. She had so many different types of appetizers and other finger foods, and I had made some myself and taken a large tray over to her place. So from about four in the afternoon till almost seven in the evening we tried to watch a movie, played scrabble, chatted, and ate snacks. It was such a lovely relaxed afternoon.




    Dave looks better, but I can see that he still has some pain in the back. Just in the way he lowers himself into the chair and gets out of it, I know that the back is still bothering him. I pray that soon his pain is completely gone. Other than that, he is doing better overall.

    The madness of the shopping season has started. Saadia and I never go out on the Friday after Thanksgiving to do any kind of shopping. But Noah wants to see what it really is like—– the crowd, the facial expressions and the frenzy of the shoppers. Saadia refused to take him. So guess who offered to do the honor! Yup! I told him I would take him to our mall sometime during the day. I hope it will be a good lesson to him to not venture out on the future Black Fridays.

    Hope all of you had a very good Thanksgiving Day.
