I am doing NaBloPoMo this month. 30 blog posts in 30 days. Come join me. #nablopomo2022
The time I woke up: bright and early at 7:00 a.m.
First thing I did after I woke up: I got dressed to head out for the 29th annual Run to Feed the Hungry Turkey Trot around the neighborhood. I had signed up for the 10k because it starts about 45 minutes earlier than the 5k and there are more runners than walkers on the course. It makes for a lot less swerving around people, although I really think it’s awesome that so, so many people come out for the Turkey Trot every year, young and old, walkers and runners. I even saw a lady completing the 5k with a walker and I was so impressed and gave her the thumbs up!
My Mom, who’s an avid walker, would have loved this event and I wish I could have participated with her. It’s such an awesome way to start Thanksgiving Day every year, and I was excited to run the actual race again, not just the virtual option.
Today’s weather: Cold, but sunny. It was only 39F/4C when I headed out, but the sun was rising and it was in fact perfect turkey-trotting weather. (Yes, I am wearing three layers, even if it doesn’t look like it in the photo.)
An out-of-the-ordinary thing that happened today: we live right in the center of the Turkey Trot loop through our neighborhood, so both cross streets at the end of our street are always blocked off for a couple of hours on Thanksgiving morning. Jon had offered to drive me to the starting line of the race in the morning because it was so cold outside, but I told him he couldn’t because we couldn’t get out of our street by car. So I ended up walking to the starting line – which was really okay, as a) it was just a little over a mile up the road and b) a good warm-up walk for me before the race.
Last thing I read (not on the Internet): I am still working on the Outlander series. My reading updates have been pretty “boring” for months. I am currently on book 5 and have 4 more books to go.
Last thing I read (on the Internet): Feedly. Catching up on your blogs. It’s been such a joy to read so much from so many of you this month. Thank you for showing up for NaBloPoMo in such big numbers.
Last website I visited: GetPocket.com (looking for a bookmarked recipe. Where do you keep your bookmarked recipes?)
Last show I watched: Sister Wives. I used to watch it years ago, then kinda lost interest, but now I am back on the bandwagon and there is so much drama. I mean, I am not surprised. I always found the concept of plural marriage fascinating, but ultimately unsustainable. (Topic for another day.)
Last thing I said: I am so stuffed, but that was delicious.
Last thing I ate: apple pie with whipped cream.
What I will be doing an hour from now: reading on the couch.
Current whereabouts of other members of the household: Jon is on the other couch next to me and we’re enjoying the fake fireplace. I am trying to talk myself into believing that it emits actual heat. Ha.
One thing I crossed off my to-do list today: I started working on a holiday to-do list and got a Black Friday Groupon deal for the holiday cards that I still have to order. At least, I could take advantage of a good deal on the cards, even though I am still unprepared to actually order them. Ha. Chipping away on to-do-list items in very tiny bits over here.
What was one thing that you crossed off your to-do list?
