Thankful For Nothing

Yep, that's right, NOTHING.

As in, Mark and I did NOTHING all weekend and it was wonderful!  We both had things we could have done, but we chose to spend this holiday weekend just laying around.  Johnny and Wifi joined us for Thanksgiving and even though there were only three of us eating (plus one tiny dog and big cat eating turkey and another cat who just wanted to roll in the olives) there was still a lot of cooking to be done.  So in the week leading up to the big day I prepped all the food and made my desserts so there would be little to do on the actual day.  The sweet potato pie was amazing and despite a small springform pan malfunction with the cheesecake everything turned out great!
Oops, good thing I made an extra large cheesecake so there was still enough batter in the pan to make a full size cake.

Our guests, arrived around 3:00, we ate around 6:30 and by 8 we were all feeling sleepy and our guests headed for home.  This is where the true nothing began.  We had a fridge full of leftovers and nowhere to be until Monday.  NOTHING, it was amazing.  Thanksgiving turned out to be our coldest day yet since we've been here so I got to wear capris and a comfy long sleeve shirt and Mark and I spent the evening somewhere between napping and watching the football game while snuggled under one of my unfinished quilts.  So its only partially quilted and the rest is held together by safety pins? Who cares, we are in the middle of doing nothing.   The rest of our weekend involved a lot of Netflix went something like this:

SUNDAY: NOTHING, with an excursion to Ft. Zach where we did nothing which included laying on a beach towel under the shade of the trees and nearly falling asleep then relocating to the rock from where we watched the boat races and reading books.

What a great holiday.

If your holiday was not like mine I suggest next year you plan your holiday so that you will have NOTHING to be thankful for too!


  1. "Nowhere to be until Monday" ???? Um, I missed you online!

  2. I think I might have a day like that ... probably when I'm about 50.
