So how many of us Americans gained five pounds this week? LOL!

It was a good week, despite only having Sally working for two days. I invited a friend over for Thanksgiving and we ate and then after she left I ate some more and then hibernated for a while. LOL! It was good!

Got my shrink appointment done early, that was nice. Got in and got out. By the end of next month, I'll be off the Abilify and will see if that's what's causing the shaking or not.

This week I have an appointment on Tuesday with the agency that assigned me Sally. They're coming to the apartment so that's not so bad. They do this like three or four times a year, so it's no big deal.

I also have a THING tomorrow. I was convinced by my friend to sign up for a 24-hour gym. Yeah, I know. She got twenty-five dollars out of it so that's not so bad. But that means tomorrow I meet with someone to help me figure out what I can and can't do. I figure any exercise is better than none, but I'm not exactly looking forward to it. An object at rest stays at rest and I've been at rest a long time.

Still, it'll be good for me. Blah. Wish me luck that I don't fall off the treadmill and embarrass or hurt myself.

To counteract all that good exercise, I'm actually going to try out my weekly recipe this time. If it's good I'm making it for Yule. Rich Chocolate Truffle Pie. It's just five ingredients but someone in the comments suggested expresso powder to make it a bit more flavorful and that sounds good to me! So I'm going to try adding that too! LOL! Hope y'all like!

Well, here it is. The big week of Thanksgiving. The cooking Olympics of the year! LOL!

Seems like it was just Halloween, doesn't it? My how time flies. I'm not doing much for Thanksgiving, just chicken strips, sweet potatoes, and dressing. I'll not call it stuffing since I'm not stuffing it in anything. LOL! Sally will be making my sweet potatoes and dressing for me the day before, and I'll make the strips in the oven the day of. Oh! And pumpkin pie, can't forget that.

Still, I wish I had the stamina to get up and make it myself. I kinda hate asking Sally to do all that when she goes home and cooks all night for her own family. She's got a big family so she's making much more, including things like deviled eggs, potato salad, and macaroni salad. And homemade pies, she's working on them tomorrow when she's off. Four of them! I envy her family, they better appreciate her!

That's the big thing going on this week. Oh, I've got my shrink appointment tomorrow but it should be easy peasy, in and out. They're just going to lower my abilify more so I can see if the shaking is due to that or something in my head. That shouldn't take long.

So yeah, mostly cooking and eating this week. I may invite a friend over for the big day if she doesn't have anywhere else to go. I kinda hope she does, for her sake. She's got family in the area but they never seem to include her unless they need her. You know the type.

I'm looking forward to the dressing the most though, I love dressing! I'll eat it till Saturday. LOL!

Here's a recipe that would be nice for breakfast on Thanksgiving morning. I actually made something like this without the streusel on it and it was GOOD. Mom and I would slather cream cheese on it and eat it warm. So I hope you like it.

it's ineffable  
Sol Del Sur by Spades [Aziraphale/Crowley]
Week 1 of Aziracrowvember! Gift/Cozy/South Downs

Very Truly Yours by Mizmak [Aziraphale/Crowley]
Crowley and Supreme Archangel Aziraphale exchange messages as they try to save both the Earth, and their friendship.

Worth It by fiction_before_reality [Aziraphale/Crowley]
Aziraphale and Crowley deserve one moment of happiness. Takes place in S2E5 "The Ball".

Questionable home decor by elf_on_the_shelf [Aziraphale/Crowley, Beezlebub/Dagon, Hastur/Ligur, Furfur/Shax] Mature AU
Crowley's gang of friends has been begrudgingly helping each other out ever since their days in Uni, so it stands to reason that they're gonna band up to help Furfur move. A perfectly ordinary Tuesday, that. A Tuesday like any other. Absolutely and definitely not the Tuesday that Crowley's life is turned completely upside down by the appearance of a certain angel back into his life. An angel that had been on his mind for the past, oh so many years.

Touch my heart with yours by elf_on_the_shelf [Aziraphale/Crowley]
Crowley muses over the increasing number of affectionate touches he gets from Aziraphale after the averted Apocalypse.

trajectory by lupinely [Aziraphale/Crowley, Maggie, Nina, Muriel]
After Aziraphale leaves, Crowley gets on with things. He reads one of Aziraphale’s favorite books. Every now and then, Aziraphale calls from Heaven. Sometimes they even talk.

what we could have been (and what we one day shall be) by meetmeatthecoda [Aziraphale/Crowley] Explicit AU
The next time Crowley sees Aziraphale after the day he broke his heart, entered a blinding white lift, and left him behind, it’s in almost the exact same place.
Three interminable months later...

Moonlight Serenade (Extended) by TawnyOwl95 [Aziraphale/Crowley, Anathema/Newt, Pepper, Hastur] Explicit AU
That night the bombers flew out from Tadfield Airbase. They always woke Crowley up, set the dogs barking but tonight they disturbed him long after the night had fallen silent again.
He couldn't sleep until he heard them come back, until he knew if there was a chance Aziraphale was still alive.

Nor Walls of Beaten Brass by TheKnightsWhoSay [Aziraphale/Crowley, Roderick Burgess, OFC]
Crowley has been a prisoner for over ten years. His hold on reality might be slipping.
