Happy almost-Thanksgiving, friends! If your Turkey Day celebrations involve cooking, baking, or traveling, I hope you have a delicious and safe journey.
With “only 17” people coming tomorrow, we have plenty to do!
I need to start cleaning and organizing, so it’s a quick post today!
Yesterday involved a lot of food prep, so it was a takeout kind of night. Hello, Chinese!
I ordered hot and spicy baby shrimp—mmm. I would definitely get it again. Prior to last night, I don’t even remember the last time I had Chinese, so I’m sure that added to its tastiness.
I had to Instagram my fortune cookie, too.
Workout – Running
I took a rest day Monday (two days before a race, I always take a day off), and I set out this morning for an easy, 20-minute shakeout run. The cold weather made it quite difficult to warm up—thanks a lot, 35 degrees—so I’ll have to keep that in mind during tomorrow’s turkey trot.
After my run, I made a spinach and egg-white open-faced breakfast sandwich.
Since I’ve been home, I’ve been having a hard time cooking food in a pan; between yesterday’s “pancake” and today’s “omelet,” it’s struggle city big time.
As I ate my breakfast, a certain greyhound refused to leave my side.
Someone wanted a w-a-l-k. (Zelda recognizes the word “walk,” so we have to spell it out or simply abbreviate it to “w.”) How could I say no to that face? The cold weather called for a coat—for both of us.
For greyhounds, the general rule of thumb states whenever you wear a jacket, they need one, too. Anyway, we drove into town and set off!
Zelda loves stalking squirrels, which is funny because as a former racer, she had to chase a fake rabbit around the track. She wasn’t a great competitor—she “retired early”—but I’m sure if she had to chase squirrels she would be a champion. But then she’d probably still be racing and not living here.
Did you have any pets growing up? How about now? Are you a cat or dog person?
