It feels so wrong to be discussing Thanksgiving but somehow the week has arrived and I’ve done nothing. No shopping. No prepping. No anything. We went to Disneyland yesterday and today is filled with commitments so I won’t get anything done today either. I could really use a personal assistant right about now. Or, a magic wand.
I’m a little bleary-eyed. Seventeen hours at Disneyland will do that to you. However, after about two buckets of coffee, I will head to the park for breakfast with the ladies.
I am off all this week and the following Monday. I hope to get most of my meal shopping done tomorrow and then pick-up all the produce the day before. Once again it will just be us for Thanksgiving. PJs welcome. However, my son has to work Thanksgiving evening so we will be eating earlier than we normally do.
By the way… the PJ thing started years ago when we decided to be comfortable on Thanksgiving day. The kids are older now but hey, who doesn’t want to be comfortable?
Thankfully Reading Weekend is coming up. I’ve not participated before but I am really tempted to join in this time. What would I read? I have to finish the one book I have but I would love to read The Master and Margarita.
American Horror Story ended for the season and it ended in a pathetically, horribly way. I groaned. I complained to anyone who would listen. None of my grumbling made-up for the time I lost watching it.
We watched our first Christmas movie of the season, Deck the Halls with Matthew Broderick. It’s not a fave of mine but my family loves it.
I plan to watch Home for the Holidays sometime before Turkey Day. It’s directed by Jodie Foster and stars Holly Hunter, Anne Bancroft, Charles Durning and Robert Downey Jr. If you enjoy dysfunctional families, you will love it.
This section makes me laugh. What will I NOT be making? I signed up to bring stuffing for a Thanksgiving serve opportunity but it just occurred to me that no one will be home to taste it before I bring it over and I can’t because of the gluten so I will be flying blind. Hope it tastes okay.
So much. My family including The Otter Pup. My home. All of you who sent me a kind word on the anniversary of my mom’s death. My life group. My teen small group. Homeless outreach. My ever-growing faith. Our health even though it’s not perfect. My job. All of the friends I’ve made through this blog and in real life. Laughter. Kindness. Great books and the time to read them. Art. Holiday traditions. Time off and so much more.
If you had the time this weekend to read one book, what would it be?
