NaNoWriMo Day 22 – Happy Thanksgiving!



Clockwise from top right: Frodo goblet full of milk, sweet potato patties, mashed potatoes and gravy, ham slice cooked in apricot jam sauce, carrots with butter and dill, crescent rolls.

I made a metric ton of mashed potatoes.  I like to do that and make potato patties later.  Besides, I had too many potatoes.  They don’t keep forever.  Probably won’t be doing this again ever.  It’s super depressing to cook for yourself on a holiday.

Some things I am thankful for today include:

  • My parents, for finding me a good car when I really needed it.
  • Whoever approved extended unemployment benefits.
  • Whoever is going to give me a good job very soon.  Ha!
  • A roof over my head.
  • Food in the fridge.
  • Chocolate cupcakes with pink icing.  Mmm.
  • People who are there when I am sad.
  • People who don’t judge me for being sad.
  • People who post really funny things on Facebook, like George Takei and my friends Heiko and Cheryl J.
  • My kitty, although she drives me nuts most of the time.
  • That even though my mower broke, it was a nice day so I could get the leaves raked up.
  • That I can actually write, since I like doing it so much.
  • Everyone who reads my blog and follows me on Twitter, even if I don’t actually know you in person.  Thank you so very much!!!
