Happy Thanksgiving!

It's wonderful to go over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house today. And it's wonderful for my husband that he will be having a gluten-free Christmas. Wild rice stuffing, cornbread stuffing, pumpkin custard ... a plethora of delicious foods designed to tantalize the tastebuds. And as watching football gives my son an appetite, I'm sure serious inroads will be made in the dishes on the table, which means my mother should be able to fit the leftovers into her refrigerator afterwards. The rule is "Whatever doesn't fit goes home with the relatives."

The John B sock will be accompanying us to Thanksgiving, since some people are categorically unable to sit quietly without wiggling fingers. Why are you not surprised?

Things we're thankful for around here ...
* The basement is done.
* Friends and Family.
* Friends, Family Food, and Football.
* A harp
* Pointy sticks and yarn.
* Good books.
* The Good Book.
* God's love, and the rest of His marvelous qualities.
