Wow, It's Been Busy! Turkey Day, Half Marathon, Football Watching
Today's NaBloPoMo prompt is:
Nov 25: You are given unlimited funds and a fabulous team of programmers and told to create your own social networking platform.Tell us all about your ideal, fictional social media site.
That's another prompt that I'm just not feeling. So, I thought I'd tell you about how busy I've been instead.
This past week my parents were up from Florida visiting. I always enjoy when any of my family visits. I love all of them very much and miss them all. My poor Dad came up in spite of all of his dislikes. . . . . .flying, cold weather. He always said he wouldn't go farther north than our central Florida county line during the months of . . . . well. . . .. any month besides July and August.
A couple days before they were scheduled to get here we got at least 6 inches of snow!
And then after they got here some of it melted and then we got six more inches. Plus the temperature was in the single digits several days they were here. Poor Dad!
The day after they got here we cooked our Thanksgiving Turkey and fixings. Yum!
Our friends from down the street ate with us, too. And of course no Thanksgiving meal would be complete without a little celebrating. . . . . with wine and beer.
Luckily the weather got warmer for the weekend.
Saturday we watched our college football game at home and I had to take it easy with food and absolutely NO alcohol because my hubby, sister in law and a friend were doing a half marathon the following day.
I. Am. Still. Sore.
You can check out any of my half marathon training issues and stuff at my other blog:
After the half marathon we had people over at our house to watch the Browns game and the Browns won. A good time was had by all. Although four of us were having a hard time walking. Half marathons are not easy! But, we did it! And you can believe we were eating everything under the sun after the race.
I had to take my parents to the airport on Monday. And now it's time to get back to "life as normal." OR,
maybe not. We actually have the REAL Thanksgiving coming up! Luckily, my mother in law always hosts. I only bring a squash casserole. I'll probably make that on Wednesday night so that I can watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade all morning on Thursday and enjoy my cinnamon rolls!
I'll need to walk another half marathon by the time it's all done!
And then of course this weekend after Thanksgiving is Rivalry Week!!! What a great weekend in College Football. Who do you root for?
What is your favorite Thanksgiving dish?
