Happy 1st of Advent! I can’t believe it is Christmas time already. I mean it was just Thanksgiving three days ago. This year we spent that holiday in Boston with Rich’s family. And we had such a good time with eating lots of delicious meals, playing board games, and meeting a few friends. It felt like a short vacation. Although I missed our cats a lot – but they don’t enjoy traveling much and really like our cat sitter.
Else, not much happened. Although I managed that we ended up with a huge amount of bagels. We know that Rich’s family likes bagels and obviously NYC bagels are the best (they just are!). So I decided to buy them on the Too Good To Go app on Wednesday. I bought a surprise bag each from three different bagel stores because you never know exactly what you get or if they cancel when they don’t have any leftovers. When I went to pick the bags up on Wednesday afternoon, I quickly realized that I had planned this a little too well. We then had 26 bagels. Oops. So we only packed 15 (for 5 people) and put the others in our freezer. Saying that, the bagels we ate were excellent and I am sure we will greatly enjoy the remaining ones – just not all at once.
