Thanksgiving Weekend

IMG_20201127_163605_592And another Thanksgiving done. It's been a nice four day weekend and I am kind of sad today is already day four but can't complain. We have had a 20201128_190544_resized_1nice relaxing long weekend. 

Monday to Wednesday was pretty hectic with work. But that was to be expected with the short week plus covering for someone else. But made it through of course. On Thursday we went over to our friends John and Jana's house for Thanksgiving. Jana made a turkey meal (from Blue Apron) and we also made Sachertorte for dessert. Had a lot of food and wine and a good time hanging out. After dinner we watched "Happiest Season" on Hulu which was a fun movie. 

Friday we slept in and then met Shannon, Mike's niece, and her boyfriend Kyle for lunch at Two Steps. Stopped at Rosy's for a bit and then caught up on some TV before calling it an early night. Since I went to bed early Friday I ended up getting up early-ish on Saturday and finally made a dent in my mail. Wrote four letters Saturday morning so that felt good. It's been a while since I wrote letters so it felt good to catch up. Still have one more to go, hopefully I'll get that done soon too. 

Also wrote all my international Christmas cards and mailed those earlier in the week. Now I still need to get the US ones done. Also managed to get most of my Christmas shopping for my oversees friends done already. Now just need to get the tree and decorations put up. Maybe tomorrow. 

Anyway, yesterday, after my letter writing, we went for brunch at J Lawrence. And later in the day I headed back over to John and Jana's for some Christmas baking. Their friends Maya and Eddie were staying over so Jana, Maya and I made some Rugelach and Linzer cookies. And Jana also made beef stroganoff for dinner. Followed by playing board games. 

Today we slept in and are heading to Rizzuto's in Westport for lunch. The weather is actually pretty nice, in the low-mid 50ies. We had talked about going for a walk before lunch but ended up being lazy instead. Oh well. Nice to have a low key day before heading back to work tomorrow. Well, since I am still working from home it's really not that much of a difference. Haha. But yeah. 

Mail Update: Letters went out on Saturday to: Celia/MA, Carmen/Malta, Lotte/Denmark and Kimber/Canada. Received a letter from/owe a response to: Nina/WA.
