Today’s prompt in the Fall Fun Series calls for the participants to share their Thanksgiving plans. But I have a triple whammy going against my particular Thanksgiving plans in that 1) I’m Canadian, so my Thanksgiving is long since past, 2) I’m Canadian, so my Thanksgivings are more functional than traditional and 3) I’m Canadian, so this morning I woke up to THIS:
Which means that Fall is now naught but a memory, and we are firmly in the winter of our discontent (oh no, run!)
But to my American blogger friends, I wish you a wonderful week in the lead-up to the big day, and Thanksgivings free of family drama, travel woes and salmonella.
Which is actually NEVER an issue when you limit your Thanksgiving meats to your manicures! And no, I’m not going the Full Gaga on you here – just making a super awkward transition to talking about this polish, Hawaiian Ham, a homemade creation I widgeted together years ago specifically with those unidentifiable Thanksgiving (or Christmas, or Easter) ham casseroles in mind. You know the casserole I’m talking about – the one your father’s great-great aunt has been making since the late 1950s, an abomination of a Good Housekeeping throwback containing ham, pineapple, maraschino cherries and three kinds of processed cheese? Still, it’s gotta beat Aunt Bethany’s lime-and-cat food Jello mold!
And so on this Thanksgiving, American friends, this Ham (manicure) is for you. I hope you have wonderful holidays, all.
