Breaks from school are never how I imagine.
I watched two seasons of Grey’s Anatomy and I’m okay with that.
Seriously, this is not what I had planned but when things like being sick happen, that is about all you can do. Luckily, I was able to accomplish two things on my week off: go to the csa and cook thanksgiving dinner.
The trip to the csa was actually awesome. I had no idea that so much grew into November:
I also was able to grab a few heads of lettuce. It is unbelievable that I can have a fresh salad when it is 30˚ outside!
As for Thanksgiving, I had a wonderful dinner with my parents and grandparents. Although there were only five of us, I cooked enough food for ten.
I spent the entire morning in the kitchen, watching Grey’s (once I started watching, I couldn’t stop) and making food. I couldn’t have asked for a better day.
