Happy Monday!! I might be part of the very small minority of people who actually enjoys a nice fresh new week to reset and get excited about life again! Even better is when a Monday happens to be a day off like today! Today is Thanksgiving Monday over here in Canada, and it’s a day off of work or school for most people. So three day weekend means an extra fun challenge post for today which is to talk about weekend highlights!!
Thanksgiving is definitely different this year because of COVID-19. Usually my family would celebrate over at my Oma’s place with oodles of stuffing and pie. This year was obviously quieter.
It was so weird getting a chance to sleep in and know that I had THREE FULL DAYS of whatever the heck I wanted. I spent Saturday mostly relaxing, cleaning up, and going for a long run/walk through the neighbourhood.
I did enjoy the 30 seconds of organization where everything was in its place!
I had been meaning this past week to buy the ingredients to try my hand at baking a pumpkin pie… But I ended up completely forgetting! I still whipped up a pie… although he’s much cuter, and has FAR less calories ;).
Please meet Gourdon (you know, gourd-!):
I knitted him up in about an hour, using Lion Brand Super Bulky yarn. Sugar has been enjoying attacking and cuddling up with him as well!
Sugar and I had a lazy food coma kind of day! What’s thanksgiving without an overstuffed tummy?! Sugar had Turkey Friskies of course, and I had a huge rice and veggie stir fry – which I forgot to take a pic of because I was so excited to eat it (sigh!)
Then we played some video games (Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure) and cleaned up again.
Then I reminisced about how it was physically possible for three days to pass by in two minutes, because it was an amazing weekend.
