I'm sitting with my new favorite beverage - Nestle cocoa mix and International Delight's Peppermint Mocha (dairy case) creamer. Throw some whip cream on top with sprinkles.... ahhhh.
I'm debating on starting in on decorating. I know, it's not even Thanksgiving yet, but I love CHRISTMAS (as if you didn't know), and given that the rains have started in again (and according to the weather, will last through the week) - perhaps that's just what I need to do. Besides, I have a friend visiting my house for the first time this week and Michele and the kids will be coming up Tues. and Wed. so it might be nice to have it done. Hmmm, that's a lot of work, though, for a day that I'm feeling especially lazy. Last year, Michele was around a lot at this time of year - I've missed her and the kids being around so much. But, with them now enrolled in public school, it's not as easy to accommodate. Sigh.....
It's a good thing UO Football Season Ticket holders don't have to commit to purchasing their tickets at the end of the season. By spring when we do have to commit, I'm already missing the festivities and antipating the fun, crisp September days full of expecation, hope and celebration. Yesterday's experience at Autzen, however, was nothing like it. I was well layered and it was still bone-chilling cold, which conveniently matched the attitudes of the fans watching our team self-destruct so pathetically. (Can you say SIX turnovers!) John joked that he'll be wearing orange and black to next week's Civil War with Michael.......that's how bad it was.
We have Brayden's first basketball game this afternoon, perhaps I'll take some pictures and discuss it next time I write. He is such a hoot to watch in sports!
On to the questions-
1. What are your plans for Thanksgiving?
2. What is your favorite traditional Thanksgiving food?
