Back to the socks. Wendy's generic toe up pattern using Colinette Jitterbug. This color way kept making me think of a hot fudge sundae with a cherry.
I started out the week in Philly where I ran the half. It was cold, it was raining. Did I mention that it was cold? I still managed to finish in under 3 hours with little to no training the last month from illness and being overstressed at work.
Then I continued on up the east coast to Providence, RI for Thanksgiving. Pulled back into work on my travel day so we're going to have to talk about my days off when I get back about when can I take a day off for real? Two exhausting days working full days and did another 3 hours or so of work Thursday morning before I got busy with the turkey. And after that I pretty much just said "fuck it" to the work. I'm not a miracle worker, even though people think I can just make things happen with a quick motion of my magic wand. No. You're just going to send me to the mental facility THAT MUCH SOONER! My brain keeps seizing up everytime I log back into work. Edited to remove some overly emotional venting
Oh right, food. Sorry to side track into life. It's either bitch and complain here or not post at all due to all the negativity spewing out right now. Turkey turned out well. We get a turkey from Whole Foods every year. It comes all set to go, you just have to pop it into the oven. I made some ham/sausage maple stuffing Wednesday night and some sweet potato gratin. I love the stuffing! The sweet potato gratin didn't really do much for me. Cranberry sauce out of a can. Chinese sticky rice. That is a tradition my mom started way back when...instead of stuffing, we had sticky rice. There were also some green beans.
