Yesterday was Thanksgiving at my parents’ house and we ate a lot and all day. It was a delicious and relaxing day.

Early Thanksgiving in Pittsburgh November 24, 2008

Matt and I went to Pittsburgh this past weekend to visit his family. We had lots of fun and food! It was freezing but we stayed warm in all of the various farm markets we went to. I think we bought food at each one to make our Thanksgiving lunch on Sunday!

We went in some gift shops, too. This one had bees inside and it scared the living daylights out of me.

I don’t think it got above freezing on Saturday (hence the icicles) but some crazy ducks were swimming.


I stayed warm in my sleeping-bag coat. More later in another post.

Prop 8 Protests November 16, 2008

On Nov. 15th, there were organized protests against Proposition 8 all around the country. The weather and my fever prevented me from going to the one at City Hall in Philadelphia, but here are some images, articles, and blogs from yesterday:
