Today I stepped on a leaf…and it responded!
FUCK YEAH FALL IN HOUSTON!
With this official crunchy-leaf decree, I’m now totally excited for the holidays! I’ve spent the morning reading food magazines and blogs, getting excited for Thanksgiving, researching food gifts, and thinking about Christmas cards. Even though I’m not cooking for Thanksgiving this year — except for some sort of “Please like me!” dish to take to Eric’s family’s Thanksgiving — I think I’m going to just start cooking some oh-so-Thanksgivingish foods for myself in the next few weeks. I mean, who says you have to eat Thanksgiving foods on Thanksgiving? I think I’m going to make some delicious appetizers for dinner tonight.
Well…maybe not tonight. I have no motivation to do anything today except lounge and research — truly, someone may have to come my computer to get me off of Martha Stewart’s Web site. (Also, I’m normally not a huge fan of Food Network Magazine but I am loving the November issue — definitely recommend.) I’m so content in bed with my laptop, I might not have it in me to get to the grocery store today. For now, I’m perfectly happy just looking at stylish, delicious things, especially in the spirit of my favorite time of year.
While it’s never been my favorite holiday, I have to admit, right now, I have a raging boner for Thanksgiving — sorry I’m not sorry!
What is everyone else up to today?
