OT - Thankful Thursday/Thirsty Thursday
Welcome to Thursday, STalkers! It's a brisk and windy day in my neck of the woods with snow in the forecast. Woo hoo!!! *yahoo*
Today I am thankful for:
- Snow. I love it! Looking forward to the day I can trot my happy arse outside and fall backwards to make a snow angel. No, I am not too old. Growing old is mandatory. Growing UP is optional!
- My DH. He was sooo tired last night, but insisted on sweeping the kitchen floor last night when I got out the broom. *air_kiss*
- My Dad. He's still calling/texting me every evening. 56 years old and still Daddy's Girl. <3
- That effing Covid. Maybe it was the raging high fever. Maybe it was the delusions. Whatever is was, something somewhere in there altered my mindset. I've been struggling for a couple of years with the idiocy that is King Pita. My current boss recenlty left for another job (more $$) and we've been in limbo. This morning, I discovered (while doing my job), that KP's name has replaced that of Former Boss in all of the online data. And I felt NOTHING. No dismay or anxiety or anything. I saw it, said to myself, "Okay" and continued doing my job. Maybe some of my brain cells got fried? *crazy*
Yesterday, I received an early Christmas gift from a dear friend. It's an advent calendar of liqueur-filled French chocolates. *biggrin*
Which got DH and me to talking about holiday drinks and family tradition. For many years, Thanksgiving dinner meant the first eggnog of the season - served for dessert with your choice of pie. Christmas was Brandy Alexanders (made with ice cream). Dad passed that responsibility on to me almost 30 years ago. And, of course, Cold Duck for NYE. I remember getting my first taste of Cold Duck at age 10 when Dad let me sip from his glass. I'm tempted to buy a bottle to toast the arrival of 2022...
Do you have any holiday drink favorites/traditions?
