I’m sure most of you will be too busy celebrating the holiday to spend time in the blog world, but I still wanted to have a happy, Deep Thought provoking post waiting for you.
The Boy Scout in me is always prepared!
I already had my big Thanksgiving feast last Thursday during The Sweet Irish Girl’s visit, but I still plan to carry on a few Thanksgiving traditions today.
For one, I didn’t go to work. That’s perhaps the most important of all the Thanksgiving traditions, Modern Philosophers!
I’ll also be enjoying pepperoni and cheese a little later. Dad always served that appetizer on holidays, and it’s a tradition I definitely enjoy keeping alive.
I will be watching football, and am very thankful that the Jets will not be embarrassing me on national television this Thanksgiving.
There will also be pumpkin pie served for dessert. It’s not Thanksgiving without pie!
It was 37 degrees when I left The House on the Hill, making the temperature almost three times what it was for yesterday’s run when it was only 13!
I then spent some time in the basement trying to board up and cover the windows in the back room where the water pipers are. I’m hoping that by adding that extra bit of insulation, I will prevent frozen pipes this Winter. Fingers crossed on that one.
I will also enjoy a new tradition of drinking wine spritzers on Thanksgiving. The Sweet Irish Girl left a bottle of wine behind, and I promised her I would have some today to celebrate. While she was here, she got me hooked on her little spritzer concoction, and I think a few of those will help this lonely day pass quickly.
Of course, I am extremely thankful today that Love has found its way back to The House on the Hill. While The Sweet Irish Girl might currently be spending her day in a country that doesn’t acknowledge Thanksgiving, she has been in my thoughts and heart all day, while also literally being on my phone nonstop.
She clearly misses me because she has been sending me videos all day of the silliest, cutest things. I clearly miss her because I allowed her to wake me up with a phone call at the butt crack of dawn.
Isn’t love grand?
I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving, even if you live somewhere that doesn’t celebrate the holiday. I hereby make you an honorary American, so you can join in the fun!
