Thanksgiving Eve

Howdy there and Happy Thanksgiving Eve! How are you doing today? What are your plans for Thanksgiving?

We have no plans tomorrow as Luke has to work and my Mom is out of town to the Netherlands, so it’s rather refreshing. 🙂 I love the holidays, but I’m glad to take Thanksgiving off this year – I’m going to Seattle for about a week with my Mom and sister over Christmas to stay with Mom’s boyfriend Pieter (without Luke, boo 😦 ), so that’s going to be my biggest holiday for sure. My birthday is also on the 12th of December, so it’ll be like a giant birthday and Christmas gift to get up to Seattle. I’m super excited (but also sad that Luke can’t make it this time around).

Persephone was up bright and early with me this morning wanting attention – she’s such a silly baby! The other two kitt lits were asleep on the bed with Luke.


I enjoyed a cup of fresh fruit with some sugar as a start to breakfast – melon, pineapple, blueberries, raspberries, grapes, and strawberries! Talk about a sweet start to the day, I tell ya what. Coffee to drink (my coffee has cashew milk and stevia in it – I’ve given up those bad-for-you creamers, huzzah!).

Then I had a cup of Raisin Bran with cashew milk.


I started off with a plate of roasted veggies today (yellow squash, carrots, and Brussels sprouts) with light Fiesta Ranch dressing …

… and then I had half of a sandwich with Boar’s Head ham, Boar’s Head American cheddar, honey mustard, and a few organic greens on a slice of Rudi’s honey whole wheat bread.

After lunch, I baked a pecan pie – it’s our little way of celebrating Thanksgiving.

As the pie baked, I snacked on an Envy apple with cinnamon and then had a Ginger Root Beer Zevia … my tummy became upset after the apple for some reason, poop.

Soon enough, the pie was ready!!! Huzzah for pecan pie! 🙂

Not feeling all that great with my stomachache – which turned into a headache – I went to go check on my mom’s house (that’s my duty when she’s away) and ran a few errands. Then I deep cleaned the apartment (it was in need of it, read: cat hair everywhere).


I had a Siggi’s Mango Yogurt with some mixed fruit and honey for my snack today, yum!


I was craving vegetables around 5:30, so I steamed some carrots and broccoli with S+P and ate them with some hummus and Fiesta Ranch.

And at 7, I had some venison lasagna topped with Parmesan cheese.

Again, what are your Thanksgiving plans – anything exciting? Low key?

That’s all I got today! Happy Thanksgiving Eve, y’all! 🙂
