Is it too soon to start thinking about losing weight after Thanksgiving?

I solved today’s Wordle in three attempts; my starter today was NOMAD

    I had my first yoga class since last weekend’s guided activity. I’ve been working with this teacher for at least 7 years now. She said it’s like I’m a whole new person. I have an ease and grace now that I’ve never had before. I settled quickly into doing partner work with a statuesque blonde woman that I’d never met. That work would have been excruciating just last week. My relentless pursuit of recovering from 18 years of childhood trauma has turned the biggest corner possible. I’m going to read Michael Pollan’s book How to Change Your Mind for context.

    Wordle in 4 starting with VERSE. I should have started with BRAVE like I wanted to. I didn’t because thar word was a recent answer.

    Happy Thanksgiving, all!

    Wordle in 3 starting with TREAD. Mini completed with a cheat. I’m not fond of these current string of Mini’s.

    My attempt at making a lemon meringue pie was pretty much a failure. The filling was OK, but prebaking the shell took 2 attempts and the meringue took 3 tries. And I had just turned away from the oven when I smelled smoke! If you peeled the burnt top off the pie, it tasted fine. Oh well, more practice I suppose.

    David, so glad you are having successes!

    Our best to the Raleigh Royality and Happy Thanksgiving to all.

    Family heirlooms delivered successfully! Amongst the few things I kept are two quilts made by my great-grandmother, some family china, and some sweaters knitted by my beloved grandmother who died in 2017. I always say that wearing her sweaters is like her giving me a hug.

    We went to A Mano for dinner last night and it was excellent as usual.

    I am at the office today and I am one of only two people in the entire suite. I love coming to the office when no one else is here. There is a dorm right next to my office building and I totally witnessed a walk of shame as I was coming in. NO judgment here! HAH!

    Went to Publix yesterday mid afternoon, it wasn’t as crazy as I thought it might be. And -forgot to get some celery damn it! (need it to make the turkey stock for the traditional after the holiday turkey soup)
    Today is clean & organize day. Trying to find my tablecloths – I found 2, I need to find the 3rd one. We’ve got 24 people confirmed. It is going to be a casserole extravaganza.

    And – its a good day today – I had an avocado that was perfectly ripe for my toast this morning!

    Allan is up on the roof blowing leaves, it always makes me nervous.
    The back of the house is 2 stories down to the paver patio.
    (Front is all bushes & grass, that would just be annoying injuries)
    At least the leaves are 3/4 or more down now.

  7. I am choring at Wegmanns grocery store today. Hopefully a brewery will also be visited this afternoon.

    My daughter got her learner’s permit today, and spent some time behind the wheel for the first time. She did GREAT! And I did great too with regard to teaching her. No freak outs! Initial practice was in an industrial park in Conyers. I like the Conyers DMV because there’s never any line, and I’d way rather drive then be held hostage in a government office. I got a little brave and let her drive from Six Feet Under back to my house. She came *really* close to side-swiping some cars, she’s still having to get a feel for depth perception. All’s well that ends well though. It’s a super-proud parenting day for me.
