It’s a Wrap for 2019

(NaBloPoMo Day 20)

Another wrap for Thanksgiving and NaBloPoMo, that is. I’m definitely not calling it quits on the year.

I thought I was going to scale my now-annual Thanksgiving brunch back due to having overslept, but I decided against it. Homemade hash browns are what would have been nixed due to time and effort, but they are my favorite part of brunch so I just couldn’t leave them out.

My son’s plate (Gibson), with homemade hash browns, stuffing waffle, and unseasoned sunny side up egg over ham.

My plate (Marcrest Swiss Alpine), with the same stuff, except for turkey and seasoned sunny side up egg over cheddar-covered homemade hash browns.

Also, another Thanksgiving at work in the books. It’s a day unlike any other, for sure. But you couldn’t pay me to get out and shop on Thanksgiving. It’s getting to the point where you just about can’t pay me to get out and shop, period. My family’s so easy; they just want money.

And lastly, there’s another NaBloPoMo in the books. Did I meet my goal? Well…yes. And no. I made the commitment to weekdays only, beginning on November 4. And I wrote a post for every single weekday, and published every single weekday except for last Friday. I had the post in my drafts folder, but I guess I forgot to schedule it. I went back and retro-published it with a note stating it had not been published on that day. Still, I’m calling it a success.

#NaBloPoMo2019 may be going on till the end of the month, but this is officially my last post. Next year, I think I’ll stick with the weekday commitment, unless I’m feeling different at the time. I also need to remember to promote more on social media and in the NaBloPoMo groups. Other than that, I think I’m off to a good start with blogging something other than blog hops now.

How did YOU do this Thanksgiving? With shopping? With NaBloPoMo? Are you going to stick with blogging regularly?

Let’s not be strangers, okay? I’ll still come by and check on all my new blog friends, and hope you’ll drop in to check on me from time to time, too.

    Congrats. I’m always around, so I won’t be going anywhere. And I’m with you on shopping. I went out today for a phone (and didn’t manage to get it), and it reminded me why I avoid that craziness.

      Thank you! I definitely will keep coming to visit your site. I love reading all about the smart, funny, and serious kids you work with, and love seeing your knitting projects!

  2. Checking in! 🙂 I’ve made a couple posts, post NaBlo, so I’m rather proud of myself. Hopefully I’ll keep them coming, at least a few times a month. We shall see.

    Your brunch looked scrumptious!!!

      Thank you, and thank you for stopping by! I’m hoping to keep posting over here pretty regularly, too. I enjoy it; it’s just hard to keep up with sometimes.
