Catching Up With V {Thanksgiving Weekend}


Thursday 23
Excessive amounts of pumpkin pie- This year our family (My mom, sister, and I) didn't spend time cooking Thanksgiving foods. Since it's just the three of us cooking a whole turkey would be a little much. So we bought a pumpkin pie and called it good. 

Christmas movies- Watching Christmas movies on Thanksgiving is one way to relax. We watched Chrismas with the Kranks and A Merry Friggin' Christmas. 

Friday 24
Running- I have been trying to run every other day and Friday was a running day. I ran a few hours after I got up. I ran around the duck pond and did a few sprints which have left me sore. 

Christmas Trees- The day after Thanksgiving our family puts up the Christmas tree. Ever since I was born we have put up the same eight-foot tall Christmas tree. When I came back from my run my sister had already unfolded half the tree's branches which left me to do the lights. Putting the lights on the tree is fun but it makes me dizzy! This was all done with Christmas music in the background.

Errands and Black Friday Sales- I'm not a huge fan of shopping but black Friday deals are something I can jump on and I needed yoga pants and a few shirts so this was a good time to get those items. We also bought a half off priced Thanksgiving cake from one of the bakeries here.

Vivid Dreams- I have been having the most vivid dreams this weekend. I've been in a giant tree house, eating Asian foods, intoxicated by a clown with something I smoked and watched water flood a city on the 30th floor. My dreams have not been dull at all. Dreams are so fascinating.


Saturday 25
Waffles and Ornaments- Saturday morning I woke up to my sister making waffles. We ate waffles and hung up all the Ornaments on the tree. Every year it feels like there are more ornaments than there were before. Together we complained about the number of ornaments we had to hang.

Exercise and Stretching- Since it wasn't a running day I decided to use the exercise ball and then stretch.

Chruch- I always get more and more excited about going to mass as the holidays come around. Christmas mass being my favorite mass.

Nutcracker- Youtube has a great showing of the Nutcracker. I turned on my Christmas tree's lights and watched the Nutcracker. I love the music and the dancing, it's my favorite was to get into the holiday season.



Sunday 26
Homework- For some odd reason I left homework for today, luckily it didn't take nearly as much time as I thought it would. There is just so much to read for Geology. 

Blogging- A perfect activity for a rainy Sunday. Sometimes I like the fact that the rain gives me an excuse to slow down. The whole weekend, in general, has been really restful and peaceful. That is something I am thankful for.

How was your Thanksgiving weekend?

  6. THERE CAN NEVER BE TOO MUCH PIE. especially pumpkin... yummm.

    Also I always make it a point to listen to/watch the Nutcracker during this time, it makes me feel so festive :') (is that a proper adjective to use to describe yourself? who knows.)
