Today, by decree of Congress, the country took a holiday and everybody gave thanks for me. I do love it when my birthday comes on Thanksgiving Day. It seems appropriate that there's so much turkey involved.
We had a good day. Irene brought curry, condiments, and cookies, and I fixed applesauce salad, rice, bell peppers, and cake. And we had a feast! Jim puttered around the house for me, which I appreciate no end. Jen and Bob and the kids came by and brought me a Key lime pie and a Steelers yard flag, bless them! Jen has a knack for finding the perfect gift. The cats hid all day, Jethro had a great time playing with his Uncle Jim, and I knitted in front of football. We watched Drowning Mona - as I expected, they liked it. It was a good day.
Now it's after 9:00,and I'm in bed with the dog while the cats rampage around the house. I'll be up at 5:30 for work so I need to get to sleep. While I'm at work, Jim plans to get that last set of new closet doors put up. Then we'll all crash and eat Irene's corn chowder. Saturday morning we'll meet for breakfast, and maybe the farmers market, before they leave for home. It's a been a good Thanksgiving with much to be thankful for.
Still the most thankful for you,
