Hi guys!! I love having Thanksgiving early in the day and will continue doing that from now on! Growing up, it was always dinner early, which was okay. When Scott and I moved out on our own, I wanted to be all fancy and have the big meal in the evening with candles and such. And that was nice too! But man it makes the day so much longer and before you know it, it’s after 8pm and you’re still doing cleanup! Yesterday everything was done and clean by 3:30 and the rest of the day we had to do whatever. Which equaled crashing for me. :p
After feeding Rocky his Thanksgiving meal:
He’s allergic to turkey and I usually make him chicken but this year he had a salmon loaf filled with lots of goodies. And some carrots, butternut squash, and green beans. Stuffing (bread cubes) on the side and a wee dollop of yogurt. All mushed together after the picture. Here he is digging in!
That’s me and my jammy leg holding the bowl so I could get a picture that wasn’t blurry. :p
Once Rocks was taken care of, we had our second meal of the day around 7:30ish or so. Here’s my plate, same as before minus the sweet potatoes and apple sauce put in their place. Oh and a glass of wine. We finished off the bottle throughout the night. No dessert. I did make a pumpkin pudding but it turned out icky (to me, needs work) so I didn’t have any but Scott had a small bowl of it.
I was in bed by 11pm and I’m surprised I managed to stay up that long! I was yawning and passing out earlier as I talked to my mom on the phone.
I almost got up for a run today but my body is telling me it needs a break. She’s been going, going since Monday and it’s time to chill. My biggest thing I’m doing today is making lunch because dinner will be more leftovers. Scott has one chore he needs to do for me today and then we are sitting down and just gaming our hearts out. The house needs its weekly cleaning but I’m just saying meh. I need a jammie day.
See you guys later!
P.S. Maybe it would be nice to talk about my breakfast? Jeeze, can you tell I’m already on auto-pilot? Mercy! Okay, I had peppermint coffee with peppermint creamer, divine! Some 2% Fage with applesauce and some chocolate Bear Naked. There is also a peppermint square pictured which I didn’t eat because I forgot about it. Boo!
