We had a great Thanksgiving. I was so happy that it went so well. There were a few hiccups, including the cold gusting wind, snow, and difficult roads to bike getting home.
I got invited to a friend’s house for some of the afternoon and evening. So I was trying to fit everything else I had planned around that.
First I got up and watched the Thanksgiving parade. I have to say, I hate the commentary that networks insist on having over the music and the show. I really don’t care to know fun facts. I want to listen to the bands! Oh and we absolutely have to be able to watch the Rockettes dance right before the parade officially begins.
Then I traveled by bike and bus, alternating, to arrive where I needed to be. First I stopped at my brother’s, one that is nice to me, and we chatted for about an hour. We talked about what we had both been up to lately, tv shows, recent movies, politics. It was a lot of fun. I miss him a lot and wish we could get together more often.
Then off to my friend’s home, from where I lived before. I wasn’t sure if we would be friends during my packing and moving out time, but I think we might be. I’ve been able to visit the doggies several times and that has gone great. I miss them so much. It was nice to get an invite to the holiday. It was nice to feel wanted. On the other hand, I really enjoy the holidays that I am alone as well. I get to decide everything that happens that day and that is a very powerful and healing thing for us.
For part of the afternoon I got to watch the doggie show, the National Dog Show. Here is where you can see all the different dogs in the competition. And at The Kennel Club of Philadelphia you can download the whole show.
We had a lovely dinner and a lovely time visiting and hanging out. It was nice to visit, but I am so happy that I don’t live there anymore. It was all wrong for me, except for the doggies. My new place is so much more comfortable and quiet.
The food was so good! I was so happy that I could eat. I had made some gluten-free bread and also brought some sweet potatoes. I got to spend some time with the doggies and that always makes me happy.
Biking home seemed frigid. I decided to really rethink going out while it was snowing ever again. But then again I didn’t know it was going to get so cold or that it was going to snow, bordering on sleet. I guess I should have checked on the weather the night before, but they had been forecasting 65 and nice, which it was until about two pm. I am seriously upset with the weather forecasters. Next time I bundle up better.
