Seasonal Randomness

I did not gain any weight in the last two weeks. It’s probably strange to brag about nothing but, hey… Thanksgiving… no weight gain. Not only that but I made pies. We went to my brother-in-law’s house for Thanksgiving, which was nice. The weekend after, because we didn’t have any Thanksgiving leftovers of our own, I made two pies – apple and sweet potato. It turned out that my husband and I were the only ones who wanted any. Everyone else had already had plenty of pie elsewhere. So I’ve been eating pie all week. Didn’t gain any weight. How did I do that? I have no idea. I wish I knew so I could do it again and maybe even improve on it by actually losing a pound or two.

I finally did a little bit of Christmas shopping but I still have a lot more to do. As much time as I spent browsing online stores yesterday you would think I’d have it all done but I started out with very few ideas and didn’t get any new ideas during all that browsing. If I don’t order some more stuff in the next few days I’m going to have to go to the real world stores, which is okay. I do like old-fashioned shopping, though online shopping is so convenient and there’s so much more stuff to choose from.

Here’s a wonderful Thanksgiving article. Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday, if I had to pick just one. It’s all about getting together and spending time with family and that’s the best thing about any holiday. That and pie. Mustn’t forget the pie.
