Being Thankful.

Being Thankful.

I think I may have been born on the wrong continent. I LOVE Thanksgiving; it is so powerful!


While many of you are celebrating, holidaying and having family time, I’ll be working: but I’ll be thankful for that. I’ll be thinking about all of my own blessings, and those of my family today.

I’ll then be heading home to share in your traditions: good food, good company and football.


So, whatever you are doing, and whomever you are spending it with: enjoy. My thankful blessings are with you all!

It’s time to ‘fess up. We’re now nearing the end of the Pile on the Miles challenge, and I’m off target, with little chance of recovering- unless I somehow fit in a couple of marathons this week.


I had initially planned to achieve 150K this month. It looks like my mileage will be closer to 100K 😦

Thanks, padres- I feel better now I’ve gotten that out in the open! The main reason for my short mileage is a combination of being a wuss and not running in the dark, along with busy weekends away with no running, and with busier-than-usual evenings too.


So, I’m going to celebrate what I have achieved, and not get too downhearted. After all, we all know:


How have your November challenges gone?

Almost St. Andrew’s

Almost St. Andrew’s

On our drive home today, I was thinking about the coming week: with Thanksgiving, followed by St. Andrew’s day on Saturday. As @TheWelshWookie and I will be in Coventry this weekend, I thought we’d better have haggis at some point this week, since we won’t have it on Saturday.
And so, we stopped off at the George Hotel in Inveraray for dinner. And what did I have? Oh, there was only one thing on my mind: haggis, neeps ‘n’ tatties, with a green peppercorn sauce. Yummy. Very winter-warming!

In keeping with foods with an ‘n’ in the name, @TheWelshWookie has fish ‘n’ chips:

We’re now home. And I’m road testing my new slipper socks…

I hope you’re having a comfy, cozy Sunday. Did you have a busy weekend or a quiet one?
