monkeybard: (autumn blessings)
[personal profile] monkeybard
Someone at WW the other week said they know someone who decided for her own reasons that Thanksgiving was about being with friends and family, not about the food. ...  While I enjoy friends and family, let's do a quick reality check here.  Thanksgiving Is All About The Food.

I found the day itself virtually stress free.  I made my cranberry jell-o salad and sweet potato pie on Tuesday.  Cleaned and vacuumed Wednesday night.  Made my stuffing and mashed potatoes Thursday.  NordicBoy was in charge of the bird.  He was a little stressed, but there was no need.  It turned out perfectly.  Yay, NordicBoy!  And Yay , Alton Brown whose recipe he used!

We had a lovely afternoon of food and chatter with my folks and my bro.  [ profile] lethlogica  and her folks came by for dessert, and it was great to see them all.  Much hilarity and food consumption was ehnjoyed by all.

Today is for chilling out and for writing.  I printed out my print galley for my book just now so I can do a final proof on a hard copy.  You always find different things on the page than you do on the screen.  I need to start on it a.s.a.p., too.  It's due to my publisher on 8 Dec.  (I'm so glad I don't have  a regular day job, although I am going into NordicBoy's office on Monday.  And I have to be out somewhere every evening next week.  Thank the gods there's a weekend right before I have to turn this thing in!)

It was great seeing you guys! Once this place is something closer to 'organized' I'll have to have folks over for foodstuffs.

I finally have highspeed internet and phone - after over a week without. (Stupid Comcast...!) Verizon's worse, though: they charge more, and have an $175 early termination fee. (And apparently they just bought up Qwest, which means my options are Verizon and...Verizon. Bleargh.)
