11:10 am - More Catching Up in the Month of Thankfulness
Here in the rather chilly but sunshiny subtropics, it's Thanksgiving. I have made my pies to take to my friends' house, to the giant gathering they host every T-Day. It's their favorite holiday, they always say. It's easy to give thanks on a day of lots of food, lots of people spilling everywhere inside and out, good wine, good chat.

I've been irrationally gloomy the past few days, but today IS a good day to give thanks, and I'll keep my list going from my last post. (Strange numbering, yes. We move on.)

I am thankful for
13) Sweet text messages this morning from brother and brother-in-law.
14) Not forgetting the sugar-spice mixture in the pumpkin pie. (IT WAS CLOSE, OKAY.)
15) A red fuzzy throw to wrap myself in when it's cold in my house.
16) Pulling out an old CD at random from my stacks and finding myself awash in good sounds and good memories.
17) Placid black Angus cattle chewing thoughtfully in the next field over from the HUGE NEW CINEMA out in the middle of nowhere, next town over.
18) London.
19) Breaking a block in my latest writing project.
20) A place to go today.
21) Enough money to help others (even if only in a small way).
22) Friends, face to face or online, here or there.

May your day be one to give thanks for!

I like your list.

I'm afraid mine is more on the "these bad things didn't happen" side (speaking of bad moods), but it's better than nothing, yes?

Hugs, and go you, block-breaking writer!

Hooray for #19 especially. I know I owe you feedback, but I'm re-reading from the beginning to see how it flows (very nicely, so far).

Also, we are finally home from the fall book fair mayhem, hooray,hooray!
