Thankfully Exhausted

Pie prep

I’ve spent the last two days in the kitchen, on my feet, preparing Thanksgiving dinner, and I am exhausted.  Let me tell you, though, it was worth it.  No spoilers for now, except to say that there was pie.  Well, technically there will be pie.  Chris and I are about to cut into that now.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and found much for which to be thankful.  Today I gave thanks for my husband, our son, our dog, our home, and for veganism, both my personal experience of it and that it’s something we share as a family.  Of course, these are things I’m thankful for every day, but it’s nice to take the time to acknowledge and say them aloud.

I’m also thankful that Chris was so supportive over the past couple days.  In all the craziness, I know I haven’t given him enough credit for this.  It would have been easy for him to suggest at any point that I had taken on too much for a meal for that only the three of us would be eating (it was something I considered myself a handful of times), but he didn’t.  He played with Roman and took care of some things around the house while I toiled away.  He even introduced me to a podcast to help pass the time (If you’re not yet on the Serial bandwagon, do that. Now.).

Full recap of our delicious dinner tomorrow.  Right now, I’m off to nab some pie.

Happy Thanksgiving!
