Thanksgiving is upon us! Already!
Surprisingly, I got my act together and have my turkey and fixin's ready to get cracking. It remains to be seen, however, if any of it will actually be edible when I'm done cracking. No pressure, though, since the only people I will potentially poison/repulse are those in my immediate family.
In the meantime, here's this Thanksgiving meme thing from MamaKat:
1. What is your favorite Thanksgiving side dish?
Acorn squash, except I don't make acorn squash for Thanksgiving, but I realize now that I totally should.
2. What is your favorite Thanksgiving dessert?
Pumpkin pie all the way!
3. What does your ideal Thanksgiving outfit look like?
I mean... right?!?
Way to work it!
(This is where I got the idea for acorn squash)
4. What is your best Thanksgiving memory?
The way my Grandma would lift her wine glass arthritic elbows and all and make a toast of thanks and then we'd all ching ching our glasses and swig some wine which may as well have been drain fluid because that's how it tasted to me as a kid but it was Thanksgiving and Grandma made a toast and we drank wine!
5. Least favorite Thanksgiving dish.
Well how to answer that one since if I don't like it, I don't eat it. Sheesh.
6. Do you have any quirky Thanksgiving traditions?
Like walking to the Best Buy after dinner, even if it's snowing, not to necessarily buy anything but just to say we took an after dinner walk to Best Buy on Thanksgiving?
7. Where do you and your family usually celebrate Thanksgiving?
In our home. Then at Best Buy.
8. What do you love most about Thanksgiving?
I guess I just like the fact that we have a day set aside to be grateful.
9. What do you think has changed most since the first Thanksgiving?
Uhhh... nature, art, books, society, health, technology....
10. What are you thankful for?
Oh, bunches of stuff, but of course, family, friends, health, prosperity, nature, art, books, society, technology...
But really, I am thankful for family and friends - blogfriends too fer sure. Thanksgiving also coincides with birthday times for Magnum and me, so I'm grateful to be around for another birthday, considering the alternative.
My mother-in-law made this scarf for me, so I took the happy selfie to let her know I received it and love it. Then I noticed that my windows photo app has added new editing tools and I couldn't resist trying them out. So, happy Movember too!
