|hoppin' at any moment now..|
We've reached another Friday, and that means it's time to HOP!!! The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer over at Crazy for Books. As she puts it, "In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!" Even though I'm working this weekend, I'm determined to do some hoppin' .....
This week's question is: "Since Thanksgiving is coming up next week, let's use this week's Hop to share what we are most thankful for and what our holiday traditions are!"
I will admit that Thanksgiving is not my favorite holiday (Halloween is). I tend to think of it as a "food holiday" because when I was growing up, it was all about cleaning the house the day/night before, starting food preparation the night before, spending all day cooking .... having dinner.... and then doing dishes. My family isn't into sports, so we never watched football or anything on Thanksgiving. However, lest you think that my saying it's a "food holiday" means a negative thing..... it's not. Thanksgiving meant my mom's stuffing, and cranberry-banana bread, which I love. Even though Thanksgiving's not always at my parents' house (I'm married, so that means we alternate holidays with both families), I still make a batch of cranberry-banana bread, just because it's tradition. And because my husband loves that bread. I mean, I do too... but he'll eat about half a loaf in one sitting.
So here's what I'm thankful for: My husband - I'm thankful he puts up with me. I'm thankful I'm still crazy in love with him after being married for 10 years. I'm thankful for good health -- both of us, along with our families, have had a pretty decent year, health-wise (as opposed to other years, when 2 of my aunts were diagnosed with breast cancer -- they're doing great now). I'm thankful that all of our bunnies (4) are in good health. Even though they're naughty sometimes, I love them! And I'm thankful just to be here. Every day brings something new.
Happy Hopping, everyone! And one last thanks --- thanks to my followers! Without you reading my blog, I'd just be out here talking to myself..... :)
