I like the idea of sleeping in on the weekends, but sometimes, despite my best efforts, that doesn’t always happen – nevertheless, I take joy in the fact that I have the option if I want to. Although, it’s also nice to wake up early and get a lot done and still feel like you have the whole day ahead of you. Today we woke up earlier and got lots done; including visiting 3 different grocery stores, among other places as we ran errands, and picking up a few supplies for our Thanksgiving dinner.
As you may have heard, for the first time in 125 years, the first night of Hanukkah will overlap with Thanksgiving – making it referred to by some as “Thanksgivingukkah”. As a person who absolutely finds the term “shooties” (yes, this is a real thing and I didn’t make it up – it’s a woman’s ankle-high bootlike shoe) annoying as all get out, I actually find the term “Thanksgivingukkah” fun. Maybe it’s because I love holidays and the idea of two combined seems like an extra dose of awesome to me. We are having a more traditional Thanksgiving menu (I’ve seen some weird…I mean “interesting” menus out there, in honor of Thanksgivingukkah), but will light our Menorah in honor of Hanukkah that night as well.
I enjoyed putting together a couple of flower arrangements with rose hips and alstroemeria – which we’ll enjoy on our Thanksgivingukkah table. My mother-in-law gave us this beautiful crystal vase below so it seems extra special and appropriate for the holiday. Here’s wishing you a very happy Thanksgivingukkah!
