Happy Thursday!

I took today as a vacation day but ended up working from home. It’s ok. I’m happy to make money and without the 3 1/2 hours of commuting I was able to start addressing my holiday cards, take the doodle for a nice long walk, and go for a run at 3 in the afternoon!

It was 60 degrees out today—a lovely December surprise. And apparently we’re anticipating a potential record breaking 64 degress this weekend. I’m ok with it although I really do hope Winter arrives on time in a couple of weeks.

60 degrees in NYC on December 10th. Woo Hoo!

I dropped off some coats to a neighbor who is collecting them for a coat drive. Then I ran around the neighborhood.

God I love 3 milers. They're so non-committal. I can just enjoy the 30 minutes of running without worry.

I always get a kick out of running through the neighborhood during the holidays to see what fun and/or bizarre decorations people have put up. This year most decorations actually made sense but I did see this pig. There was a similar flamingo in a santa hat but I was across the street so I couldn’t snap a good pic. Trust me, it was bizarre =)

Is it because some people eat ham on Christmas?

Do you remember when I posted all about the bizarre holiday decorations in my neighborhood 2 years ago? Ironically it was almost 60 degrees that day too. And last year I was injured but walked my usual route and shared this post with you.

So my fridge has been pretty bare and I haven’t had the time (or desire) to go grocery shopping.

The Gatorade is left over from the weekend of the NYC Marathon and I can't go without my coffee creamer.

So tonight I ordered in Chinese. I got enough to last me through the weekend. =)

Duncan was annoyed that I didn’t share any with him but it’s not doggie-friendly and I don’t want him to get sick.

OK, well I’m headed over to Mr. SOTSS’s for a bit to hang. Catch ya later!

Any guess as to why a pig with a santa hat?
What’s the wildest holiday decoration you’ve ever seen?

I love a simple fresh wreath and white lights.

  1. I am from the NYC. It was so beautiful. I love all those crazy holiday decorations.

  2. I love the Chinese food solution. :) I used to do that when Tom was out of town. Going to the store is no fun!
