Instead of shopping, I slept in and went running. A pretty nice way to spend Black Friday, in my opinion.
Check out all that frost!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Our celebration was filling and fun. I love to have Thanksgiving with my English in-laws because they make an honest effort to do it up â€˜American-styleâ€™ (theyâ€™ve been here for 14 years) but still add their own English flair, with Yorkshire pudding, roasted potatoes (instead of mashed or casserole-style), and other British goodies.
We ate dinner over the course of several hours (thanks to a cheese starter, a soup, the entrÃ©e, and dessert), and then played board games until the wee hours of the morning.
I promptly entered a food coma.
To my great surprise, I was the first one up! I quietly pulled together my running gear and slipped out the door.
I was WAY underdressed. It was unseasonably warm on Thanksgiving â€“ nearly 70 â€“ but today itâ€™s back to blustery and frosty.
You know that feeling when youâ€™re running in the cold in shorts, and your thighs go numb so you canâ€™t feel your shorts, and then you keep thinking youâ€™re naked? Does this happen to anyone else? I kept checking my shorts to make sure they hadnâ€™t rode up past my crotch!
A (clothed) 5K â€“ done and done.
Breakfast included PIE. Of course. This is a post-Thanksgiving HTP tradition.
In the mix:
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
Topped with pumpkin pie and almonds
Oh yeah. Best way to use leftovers!
