Thanksgiving Weekend Recap

IMG_20221124_192308_914And here we are, Thanksgiving is done and over and we are just a few days away from December. I honestly don't Pixlr_20221128211057721 know where this year has gone but hey, here's to 2023. Just a little over a month away now. 

Thanksgiving was nice and low key and really my whole Thanksgiving break (Thursday to Sunday) was nice and quiet. We ended up with no real big plans so it was just a lot of relaxing, watching TV, reading and whatnot. 

Thursday we slept in a bit and I finished up most of my Christmas cards in the morning. Then around lunch time we started watching the newest season of Manifest on Netflix before heading out to the Hopkins Inn for our 4pm reservation. Had a lovely delicious dinner. Our table was right by the fireplace which was nice and cozy. I had Wiener Schnitzel and Mike had the scallops, both with all he traditional Thanksgiving sides like mashed potatoes, stuffing, veggies, cranberry sauce and so on. After dinner we headed home and watched "Spirited" on Apple TV before binging more Manifest. 

Friday I wrote a few letters and Mike wanted to watch the US - England World Cup game at 2pm. And later we finished up Manifest. Saturday wasn't very eventful either. Had lunch at Rizzuto's and later in the evening I put up our Christmas tree so that's done as well. 

Sunday we went to the movies and saw "The Fabelmans" which was a neat movie, followed by a late lunch at Newsylum. And eventually headed home and watched more TV, starting on the most recent season of Dickenson on Apple TV. So as I said was a pretty low key and quiet few days. 

In more exciting news we took advantage of a couple Black Friday deals. I treated myself to a new Kindle Paperwhite and we booked a great travel deal. Heading to Barcelona & Lisbon for 7 days (3 nights in each city) in February. $650 per person including all the flights and hotels. Definitely a great deal. It's been a while since we have been overseas together (Croatia in 2019) so that should be fun for sure.

Mail Update: Received a letter from/owe a response to: Celia/MA. Letters went out today to: Carmen/Malta and Kimber/Canada.
