I am excited! I love Thanksgiving. I've been given the duty of picking out some pretty flowers for my family's centerpiece, which is wonderful because I love getting my Mom flowers. I've also got a self-imposed last-minute duty of attempting a light, yummy, Thanksgivingy dish. I am a prolific procrastinator, so I will be braving the aisles of some alarmingly busy grocery store this evening to buy ingredients to prepare... Something. The Mom suggested a salad, so I'm thinking about a fall salad with mixed greens, flaked smoked salmon, apples, dried cranberries, some good cheese and maybe some nuts. We'll see.
In preparation for my day of mild food extravagance, though, I've decided to work out first thing in the morning. This is partly because I need to in general, and partly because I want to burn off a bit of what I'll be eating later! I can't eat as much as I used to, so I've come up with a bit of a game plan.
I'm going to grab about a soup-spoonful of all the things I'd like to eat. I figure, if I get a wee bit of it all, I'll be stuffed, not having gone over the top, but also getting to taste it all! That way I won't feel like tiny, orange men are about roll me away, but will be mighty content.
Byyy the way...
If you're a record fiend like I am, be SURE to visit your local record shops this Friday for Black Friday! So many albums are being released - both new, and reissued classics, and I'm sure there will be some great sales around here on used stuff. I can't wait. AND! Make sure to support local business on Small Business Saturday! I'll partake in the madness at all the big stores, too, I'm sure.
I hope you all have a tremendous Thanksgiving!
