Well the plan for today didn't exactly work out like I had it figured in my mind. For starters ~ Decided to see if we could catch at least part of the Macy's parade. I mean here I am in NYC and that is a must... right? We got dressed and over to Columbis Circle and the number of people ~ incredible! The TV said 3 million people were in the City for the parade and I believe it. There was no way we could get close enough to the street to see anything. I could see the big balloons in the air but nothing as far as floats or marching bands, etc. It is sort of like going to a football game and being up in the rafters. You really can't see much. I'm thinking... Would you rather watch it on TV or be there in person and see nothing? In this case, we didn't even have a large monitor to watch like you would in a stadium. So logic prevailed and we went home, had breakfast and watched the parade on TV.
Next up - thinking about Thanksgiving dinner. My DB and I were planning to go to a friends of his for dinner ~ but she lives way out in Brooklyn which would be at least an hour travel for us one way. DB mentioned he just didn't have the energy so we decided that we shouldn't try that outing. He took a nap, then we had lunch. Afterwards we discussed going over to the gym and decided we would do that ~ even for 20-30 minutes. We got there and they had just closed! Holiday schedule was early closing... So much for that idea.
Came back to the apartment and I did the 5 mile Leslie Sansone walking dvd. Took a shower and fixed us some dinner. We had salmon cakes, green beans, sliced apples and jello pudding... not exactly your traditional Thanksgiving Dinner ~ but then again ~ I stayed on track calorie wise! LOL
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Mine was pretty unconventional but I'm still very thankful for the blessings I have in my life. Warmest regards to you my Spark Friends,
