Thanksgiving Post

Peanuts_thanksgivingHappy belated Thanksgiving to all my US friends!

Had a nice and relaxed holiday. After sleeping in spent the morning and early afternoon in my PJs on the couch with the cats drinking tea and writing letters (got 4 letters done! - yay). Had a yummy turkey + Swiss cheese panini on a cranberry/walnut foccacia bread. Definitely a nice relaxing way to start the day. 

Had reservations at 5pm for dinner at the Hopkins Inn. (went with Mike's sister & nephew and our friends John & Jana) Super yummy meal. It was pretty funny that at our table of 6 people not one person actually ordered the traditional turkey dinner. :) I had the Wiener Schnitzel which was delicious as always of course. And the fun part just like last year was getting the traditional Thanksgiving side dishes (mashed potatoes, stuffing, vegetables, etc.) Plus my favorite Toblerone Sundae for dessert. So all in all a very nice meal.

When we got home we watched the "Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" special on TV and then caught up on some other recorded TV shows afterwards. Today we are at work but I am hoping to be able to take the weekend off which would be nice. Been working a lot of Saturdays lately so it would be nice to have one off. 

Mail Update: Letters went out today to: Lotte/Denmark, Charles/TN, Carmen/Malta and Jessica/DE. Owe replies to: Nina/WA and Caroline/Scotland.
