It’s the day after Thanksgiving … so, do you still feel as stuffed as this guy, or, are you one of the many shoppers that worked off that high-caloric meal by descending on the malls to stuff a shopping cart with bargains?
I’m neither stuffing myself, nor stuffing a shopping cart on this dreary and dismal day. My agenda this afternoon, after I send out this blog post, will be addressing envelopes and stuffing Christmas cards in them.
As to leftovers, stuffing, as in that tasty fare which accompanies the turkey, always reminds me of my mom who really enjoyed the leftovers, and always savored her stuffing and sliced turkey or chicken sandwich on the day after Thanksgiving.
Once again, the weather was certainly not conducive for walking. Unlike yesterday, when I wanted to reach that 700-miles-walked milestone, this morning, I peered out the window and said “well, maybe not today” … hopefully tomorrow though. Hmmmm – I wonder where this pesky rain was all Summer when it was so hot that when you walked past flowers and bushes, they grabbed your leg and cried out “I’m parched and need a drink” … they sure are quenching their thirst now.
Since we’ve dispensed with Turkey Day, we can begin the official countdown to Christmas, unbelievably just one month from today.
I have an affinity for scarecrows, as you may guess from the abundance of them that have appeared in my posts recently … I especially like this one with its sideways glance and mischievous smile.
