How are you all doing today?
For those planning on celebrating Thanksgiving this upcoming Thursday, are you already doing some prep work for it? Do you have a big celebration planned, or something more low key?
It's gonna be fairly low key for us; but I really need to get a pie made, some cranberry sauce made, and some cornbread made for the stuffing. Everything else for the feast is made the day of. So I'll probably get started on that pumpkin pie today (hopefully).
What about you, Blenders? What do you have going today? Thanksgiving-related or not?
And what about workouts for your Tuesday? Are you planning on earning a Workout Complete today, or perhaps a Rest Day Complete?
I'm hoping to get a lower body workout in. I'm not sure which one it'll be just yet; and maybe something low impact and lighter in intensity.
What about on the food side of things, Blenders? What's on the menu for today?
I honestly don't even have an idea right now as to what to make. We need to go grocery shopping; so that'll dictate dinner later.
Finally a random pic: since I own no domestic turkeys in theme with this Thanksgiving week, ya'll are gonna get some chickens (and a single quail). So here we have the unlikely duo of Scallopini (the Sicilian Buttercup hen) and Dan (the Bobwhite Quail). They are still hanging out together and doing very well. Scallopini has a heart condition that makes her occasionally retain fluid that we have to drain off of her, and it makes the other hens beat her up (chickens are harsh; and only the strong survive. They'll cull their own to ensure it). Dan is the last of our Quaybies (quail + baby = Quaybie). He needed a friend, so Scallopini adopted him and they now live together in the Quaybie Quondo (aka a hutch house). They're totally a thing, and it's quite hilarious.
Anywho, that's all for me today!
Thanks so much for checking in with me, and have a great day, Blenders!
