Well, it’s Thanksgiving!

It was an interesting week in the Seattle area. The ice and snow pretty much shut us down. Work was a ghost town and we left early every day. Yancy and I were all packed and ready to head to Pullman, WA for our annual family Thanksgiving get-together… but had to make the very difficult decision to stay home. The roads are dangerously icy here, and the roads in Eastern Washington are just as bad or worse. It would have been a long and stressful drive over there and possibly more dangerous on the ride home with new snows on the passes over the weekend.

At first I was a little depressed about missing the family get-together. But I’ve decided to put my chin up and make the best of it. Yancy and I hit the crowded grocery store last night to get stuff for a mini Thanksgiving meal for the two of us. We have a small turkey breast, fresh squash, broccoli salad (from aunt Beth’s recipe), stuffing,  turkey gravy, and a pre-made pie. We also have sparkling cider and a bottle of wine. So we’ll stuff our faces and have a good time. Today was an amazingly lazy day sitting around and watching movies. Tomorrow we’re going to adventure out looking for some good deals on the craziest shopping day of the year. We might go see a movie at the theater as well.

Ok, I’m off to the kitchen to put together a dinner we’ll remember!
