Giggling Fattie is having a little holiday!
Sup, Peeps and Meeps?
It’s the long weekend here in Canada, and I will be taking a little break. I know I just got back from basically a two-month hiatus over the summer, but this is important! It’s Thanksgiving!!
I know you Americans reading this are probably peanut butter and jealous that I get the full Thanksgiving treatment a whole month before you do, and if I could have my way, I would send every last bit of it down to you! Most specifically the turkey, cranberries, apple and pumpkin pie!
I’m not a big fan of Thanksgiving. Like, don’t get me wrong, I love the long weekend, and seeing Le Brother and dragging him off to some forest so I can have a photo hike and he can have a geocaching hike, and snuggling my adorable puppy, and lovingly tormenting the other pup, but I’m not a big fan of the food.
This year, I told my mom I would bring pies. For two reasons: I’m a grown ass woman and I can help contribute to my family celebrations. And also, I don’t like pumpkin or apple pie. So if I bring the pies, I control the flavour of said pies. GENIUS! Hello, pecan pie and strawberry rhubarb! YUM!!
After my phone-free day last week, I’m making the choice not to bring my laptop with me. I will have my phone, obviously, but when I go to visit my family, I am usually just hanging out in my room on my laptop. So I’m bringing other things to do (blanket work!) and will make an effort to actually be present this weekend. I have a post scheduled for tomorrow, and I’ll be checking emails and stuff, but other than that, see you folks on Monday.
Love you all!
