Being thankful week.

Thank you for all of your input on canning/storing pumpkin!  I can’t believe that some of you have lots of pumpkin in your stores!  I think part of it is how much pumpkin gets sent to small towns in upstate NY versus other parts of the country.  My sister is on the lookout in Saratoga tonight, hope she finds some.  I appreciate the offer that some of you made for yours LOL!  Makes me sound like an addict or something. 😳

No lifting this week since I finished NROLW on Friday.  Decided on a run, but I wanted to get it done with this morning and below freezing was just too much for me, so I popped on down to the gym to dreadmill it.  I knocked out 5 miles and it felt great!  I think I am going to incorporate speedwork this winter.

Came home to a hot and warm bowl of pumpkin cream of wheat (this is our home cooked pumpkin):


Topped with apple butter and toasted almonds.  Yum!

It seems as work will be busy for most of the week after all.  That’s a good thing, as when it is slow, I don’t get paid! That means that I likely will have enough work on Thanksgiving itself, too.  I will have to take the laptop to my sister’s to work while there.  At least I get paid extra 🙂

I have decided that over the next few days I am going to list some of the things I am thankful for this year, as it is the season!  I am thankful for:

  • My health
  • John
  • My family
  • My job, and the fact that I can work at home.
  • Where I live.

Stay tuned for more tomorrow!

Lunch was using up some fridge stuff.  I did an open face tuna sandwich on a waffle.


That is chocolate PB2 on the side there for that apple.

In one of my quests for being organized and productive, I have an epic fail at my desk.  Normally I don’t work at my desk (ironic, I know), but I had to plug directly into the internet instead of working wireless because my port is being funny.  Here is a picture of my desk (with latte and granola bar).


Kind of embarrassing!  😳 And that is just one side LOL

Wrap for dinner.  It was too full and I couldn’t even wrap it fully!  Stuffed with broccoli, chicken and laughing cow cheese.  So good.


I even color coordinate dessert!  This piece of Bliss matches my shirt!


I just got an email from Olympus tonight and my camera is on its way back to me!  Yay!  I should have it by Thanksgiving and then I can get back to those in-your-face macro shots 😆

Question:  Do you have much time off this week?

    Haha, that pumpkin isn’t quite as orange as canned. The breakfast still looks delish, though! All my classes were canceled for Wednesday, so that’s the day I’ll be flying home 🙂 It’s been waaayy too long since I’ve been in Michigan 😀

    Seriously, we are twinsies. I was just thinking about getting up and doing 5 miles of treadmill speedwork in the morning because it will be too cold. I suck at doing speed outdoors when it’s nice out, so perhaps the cold forcing us indoors may help us a little this winter 😉

    I have my usual mid-week “weekend” this week. The olympic torch is coming through my city Wednesday night and I’m SO excited to see it!!

    Yea for the camera, hubby bought me a new one yesterday so yea for both of us *smile*. You know your talk and yummy pictures of the pumpkin and cream of wheat have me hooked on it. I even made a pumpkin smoothie tonight before going to the gym. It’s good to look at the things we are thankful for I know I have to do that often to keep my sanity lol.

    I was in the market yesterday and thought of you when I saw all the pumpkin stuff everywhere. I can ship you as much pumpkin as you want 😉

    I’m on semi-permanent vacation since I just got “laid off” last Friday. I can’t wait to receive my first Funemployment check ever. We’ll see how long it last before I get bored out of my mind and have to go back to work just to have something to keep me occupied. I think it might take a while 😉

    I actually have a pretty nice schedule between now and Christmas. This week I am working the day after Thanksgiving and the weekend. I am thankful for so many things, hopefully I’ll remember to write a post!

    Now I’m off in search of pumpkin!!
