Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I’ve been cooking Thanksgiving dinner since I was about 21 years-old and it’s the one time of the year where I cook with abandon and don’t worry about calories or the amount of fat being consumed. I used to cook for a very large group but these days, it’s just my immediate family and it’s lovely!! The day before I chop and prep while watching episodes of Absolutely Fabulous and Thanksgiving is spent watching movies, being lazy and then serving a lovely dinner. I have to work Monday but then I am off through the following Monday so I will have seven full days of heaven and hopefully lots of leftovers!
What about Black Friday you ask? Well, Black Friday is a tradition that my friend and I have. We have breakfast and then hit the stores but we don’t do the early, early stuff. We plan to see New Moon after, but it depends on how wiped out we are or how long the lines are. I need to get my list together.
That said, my food shopping is all done and I am cooking meals for the early part of the week so that I don’t have to be rushing around on my days off. The kids will be in school so I should able spend some time with my long, lost friends…BOOKS!
Tomorrow (Monday) I am hosting our first Moby Dick Monday update. You can read about it here and please join in if you are at all compelled to do so. Quite a few people have joined us since the initial post and I have to say that it’s been much more pleasant doing this with company.
Tomorrow I am also a TLC tour stop for Saving Sammy which was a very interesting read considering my health issues of late.
Today I have more Moby Dick to read and then perhaps I will finish Her Fearful Symmetry. What are you reading right now?
