Deck All The Halls With Matzoh Balls

It was a very special Thanksgiving as it coincided with Hannukah- an event which will not occur again untill another seventy thousand years go by and come around again. Many of my friends made practically gourmet, very different from the usual, latkes and apple sauce to bring to the Thanksgiving table. And there were little first night of Hannukah gifts on the table at everyone"s place setting. We all got lovely, warm for the winter woolen socks- perfect for me and my walks on the Pier in Piermont which I am now totally addicted too! And now the Holiday season begins.... I think that in Piermont today, all day, the town is participating in a program called Shop Small. It involves shopping locally (of course) and it involves American Express somehow. It might also be in other towns and villages as well. So if there are any shops you frequent which accept American Express, you might want to participate also. Try going to the American Express website and see what you can find out about it before you start your shopping spree!
I don't see any twinkling lights up yet on Main Street in Nyack, but I believe the trees have been wrapped with little lights in Piermont as they usually are for the season. I really love shopping in these little towns as they frequently have items you will not see anywhere else. So I am planning to be very thoughtful this year and shop local!! I hope to find many little beautiful gifts for the people I care about in my life. Some gorgeous bit of woolen fluffery, some object of art maybe which will give a lifetime of pleasure to someone I love. Maybe even a piece of art work or sculpture. And I must remember to save my money also for the Pottery Show and Sale at the Old Church Cultural Center which might be heavy in weight but will lighten and gladden thehearts of the lucky ones who I might buy a piece or two of pottery for. Look at my October blogs to find out more about that specifically. Of course I am giving to the Organizations I support year round, but especially more at this time of year. So, get out your gloves, scarves and hats, your wallets, green money and, if you use them credit cards. Do the patriotic thing with good intentions and support the local economy. Have fun out there and do some really good shopping!!!
