Hi Friends!  I hope you are all having a wonderful Thanksgiving if you’re celebrating.  And if you’re not, I hope your day is equally as wonderful.

Skylar was at a friend’s house yesterday and made this

If you missed my post yesterday, I recapped lots of what I talked about this past week:

from My Living With Gratitude and Keeping Life in Perspective Post

to my Holidays with the Family: Blessed or Stressed Post

And also from yesterday’s post about having a sense of humor, it was interesting to hear what you find funny.  And not.  Good stuff!

And I am busy in the kitchen a cookin’ and a fryin’ as my grandmother used to say.  I will see you tomorrow with a Food Recap of what I made.

1. What are you doing today?  
I am cooking, cleaning, then eating!  It’s my only day off in 16 days.  Worked 8 straight, today I am off, and then working another 8 before I leave for our trip.  Not exactly the schedule I would have chosen but hey, such is life and I’m just getting through it.

2. Have you eaten anything fabulous yet?
Not yet.  Later on though, I plan to!

3. Are you working out or calling it a rest day?  If you need any workout ideas, or maybe a 20 minute at-home workout, check these out.
I did a 20 minute workout at home and a quickie 2 mile run.  I would have done that whether or not it was Thanksgiving.  A little physical exercise centers me and calms me!  

4. Did you do art projects as a kid and did your parents save them?
I loved doing little art projects, coloring, drawing, making just about anything with glue, colored paper, crayons, markers.  When I got older I loved doing pottery, making beaded creations, and painting.

I never became a sewer or a knitter.  My grandma crocheted and embroidered and tried to teach me when I was a child but I didn’t have the patience for it.  Now I wish I had!

I have some of the things I made as a kid, and wish of course, that I would have more.  But you can’t save everything, right!

Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone!  Be safe if you’re on the roads traveling and enjoy the day with your family, friends, or how ever you’re choosing to spend it!

Back to the kitchen for me now.
