As I read back on last year's Thanksgiving post, I was struck by how little has changed (and what a first for me to be in the same place doing the same thing two years in a row!) I'm still up early to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. I'm enjoying my coffee, waiting for Mr. Nomadreader to wake up, and hoping I have enough time to finish The Middlesteins by Jami Attenberg before he does.
Soon we'll open up a bottle of sparkling wine to truly toast this annual tradition. There are once again cinnamon rolls in the oven, but this year they're paleo cinnamon rolls to correspond with our new eating lifestyle (and by new, I mean five months and counting.)
In a few hours, my parents and my grandmother will arrive for Thanksgiving dinner. Mr. Nomadreader is once again slow roasting pork shoulder, a far tastier option than turkey.
Tonight we'll be putting up our Christmas trees (yes, two people in a one bedroom can have two trees!)
Most importantly, I'm still thankful for Mr. Nomadreader, my job, this blog (and all of you who take the time to read it), our apartment, and winter--my favorite season. This year, I'm also thankful for an earlier than usual Thanksgiving holiday and thus, a longer than usual Christmas season!
