In honour of the American Thanksgiving

Today, I am NOT going to stay in my PJs all day. (Yes, it does happen – just not usually on a weekday!) That said, there’s no rush, I’ll get changed after I do my “mommy” duties!

I had some fresh pumpkin purée left over from my last pumpkin extravaganza so the boys were lucky enough to get some pumpkin pancakes (well, mine are thinner than a regular pancake but a little thicker than a crêpe… so I’ll call them pancrêpes) for breakfast.

Lunches made and boys were off to school so I sat down to read my emails. There was lots of stuff regarding Thanksgiving (am following many American sites) including one from JJBegonia in which she suggests a few blogs to read, including a fellow Canadian one called Donzwebb, in which she answers a set of questions that she got from Meetmeatmikes. Oooh…subject for my next blog. I will answer the questions too!

But first, there was more to do! I had my own pancrêpe breakfast and then walked the pooch. Having a dog is definitely a great way to get your butt in motion! Brrr! The wind was blowing and I almost turned around but realised it wouldn’t be so bad once I got out of the open space, so I kept on! Besides, Zeke was so excited, I couldn’t really let him down.

Managed to take three pics before my phone died on me (that’s what happens when you forget to charge it overnight!) Isn’t it amazing how blue the sky is in winter?

Once I got home, I changed into my workout clothes and actually did the treadmill and some weights (not pleased with my chunk-a-lunk arms and legs right now…) made myself a fabulous lunch of pumpkin soup – yep, more pumpkin – and a nice green salad and now, finally, I can sit down and answser these questions!

How about you? Feel like seeing where your answers go, click here to get a blank list.

It would be interesting to do this every 6 to 12 months and see what changes, dontcha think?
