Busy happy day for us. Cooked the entire spread beginning early in the morning, and then packed it all up and took it over to my aunt and uncle’s house. They are sort of in a no man’s land of moving, and had everything but the kitchen packed up to move last week, but a last minute issue with the person buying their house pushed back the closing, and they found themselves stuck here with no plans for T-day. No way I was letting that happen, of course.
So, dinner was out of the way early, and Amanda and i headed home with all the leftovers. There’s a team that handles Mexico accounts where I work, and because Thanksgiving is a uniquely American holiday, they had to go in today. So we packed up about half the leftovers and took them in for the two guys and their supervisor to enjoy. No way my tiny family was going to eat all that food … especially since i go back to being vegetarian after a few bites of turkey on the big day. Can’t tell you how much we enjoyed dropping that food off for them.
Best part of my day … without question.
One of my favorite things to do on Thanksgiving and Christmas is to go to the movies, and the newest Harry Potter movie is just out, so of course we took that in. Very very good … can’t wait for the second part to come out next summer. And then, because we obviously hadn’t had enough cinema time, Amanda and i headed over to the local welfare theater (her name for the buck fifty place) and saw “Easy A.” Love love LOVE this movie! It was my second time seeing it, but I’d really been wanting to share the experience with my girl, so I was happy to find it playing there.
Thoroughly exhausted by the time the movie was over, we went home. Our intention was to have some leftovers and a glass of wine, but we totally couldn’t hang. i think i was asleep by 10:30. Didn’t write a single word.
i hope your holiday was just as lovely. Be beautiful, my friends.
