Michael and I spent the better part of the day shopping for Thanksgiving. Finally have a reason to plug in the deep freeze! …

I was overcome with gratitude when we were done. A kitchen full of food, a full spice rack, an adorable house, an amazing spouse, work and volunteering that make me feel useful, tarot study, a healthy mom, a garden, a fulfilling craft, cats, friends, financial security, yarn – and to top it all off, my body hasn’t required ibuprofen in five days. It seems when I wasn’t looking, all my dreams came true. ((Quiet, you. I’ll worry about politics and the state of the world again in the morning.))

My sister Michelle and her partner Gary are flying up from Florida for the holiday. We usually alternate years, and it’s our turn to join them this year, but they are amazing and lovely humans who understand our desire to be in our new house (!) for its first Thanksgiving. We will definitely be making extra sweet potatoes and jello salad to say thank you.
