|08:04 am - the requisite Thankfulness post|
Although tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I'll be baking pies and making merry then, so today will be my day to list Things I Am Thankful For.
The big things --
**my family: my father, whom I like as well as love; my middle brother, who teaches me patience and reminds me that good people are not all alike; my baby brother, with whom I talk every day
**the Dog of the House, for her sweetness and willfulness and quirks
**my job, which frustrates and tires me much of the time but does give me moments of joy
**my friends, online and off
And the things for which I give idiosyncratic thanks, too --
**various British actors of a Certain Age, who have delighted me for years and who I hope will rock on for more
**good cowboy boots
**music to fit my moods
**stories of magic
**the West Texas horizon
**Preston Sturges, William Congreve, Saki, PG Wodehouse
**Dorothy L Sayers
**a good yoga class
**walks at the wildlife refuge on a cool day
**afternoons with Sherlock Holmes and peanut butter cookies
**crossing the Red River
Actually, now that I've started I'm not sure I could stop! So I'll continue my list in my head, and wish you an even longer list to be thankful for.
Hugs and thanks!
Happy Thanksgiving, sweetie!
Are you driving thru Dallas on your Xmas trip? I'd be happy to buy you a cup of coffee...:)
Happy happy Thanksgiving, P, and I hope that there will be more joys for you in the coming year!
(I'll get back to you re driving through Dallas... that's usually my long day of driving, but I'll check.)
[waves and sends good thoughts]
That is a lovely list, and you're inspiriting me. Thanks!
::hugs hugs:: I'm personally thankful for you AND the Dog of the House. She and I spent some nice time yesterday cuddling while you were teaching...her ears are so soft!
Happy Thanksgiving, L, to you and all you love.
The Dog of the House sends hugs and more cuddles -- poor baby girl dislikes holidays because she doesn't get to go to work. ;-)
Happy happy Thanksgiving to you and D and the cats of the house, and may there be beachside joys aplenty!
What a lovely list. I'm thankful that you take the time to share.
Hugs and a v. happy Thanksgiving!
I'm thankful that you're willing to read my stuff, ALH! :-)
Hugs and a happy Thanksgiving to you, too. [shares pie]
Happy Thanksgiving! ::hugs::
A happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Cindy!
[offers champagne to you and Cinderhub]
This is a good list, L. When I get my brain back I may do one too. I think I need to do one.
*Thanksgiving hugshugshugs and pats and a bit of turkey to the Small Blonde One* Happy Holidays to you both! :-)
And a happy end of week even to those of you who aren't having official Thanksgiving, A!
[hugs and Dog of the House hugs too]

The Thames sends its love:)
I could have listed far more things about London, of course. :-)
Hugs and thanks, Lesley, and more hugs!

An excellent list! Purple! Paisley! Dorothy L. Sayers!! :-)
Happy Thanksgiving, Lori.
Wow -- now that I look at it, those elements could be on your list! :-)
Hugs, and a happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Gwynne.
I'm thankful for you Miss L and all your marvelous hugs and stories of the Dog of the House, and the positive way you look at everything. [squeeze]
Hugs hugs, L, and joy even if you and yours aren't quite celebrating Thanksgiving officially! ;-)
[more hugs and thanks]

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
I'm thankful, among other things, for your writings, fiction and non-fiction, which invariably brighten my day.
Thank you so much for these kind words, and for sharing your art with everyone in the photos you post! Thank you, and joy to you and yours this Thanksgiving!
Thanks, L, and I hope for good Thursday things to make you thankful, even if the day is not officially a holiday for you!
Hope your day is full of cinnamon and Sayers! Happy Thanksgiving!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! May there be good food, good light, and good times!
I'm thankful you're here to remind me of the necessity of owning all of Dorothy Sayers' mysteries, after having most of them disappear into the dead women's book exchange. I bought Ther Documents in the Case the other day, and am currently immersed in the loves, vices, and virtues of that small group of diverse personalities, and the wonder that is Jack's love letters to his Bungie.
Julia, what great fun that story is!
Oooh, I need to look at The Documents in the Case! [makes note] I read it years ago before I really understood the glory of DLS.
Thank you for reminding me, and for your own good self. :-) Hugs and joy to you and yours!
And the rest ...
I'm thankful for *you*, for sure.
I am v.v. thankful for you.
[hugs hugs and good thoughts for the day and the coming year]
I will add chocolate to the list.
And you. I am very thankful for you. I hope you're having a great day, hon.
And I am v.v. thankful for you, Nell!
[hugs and cheers and chocolate] I hope that the good things of today continue for you.
Hi hi, Rainkatt!
I hope the quiet is soothing -- and I am thankful for you! May it be a good season for you and yours.
[sends yarn, Champagne, and hugs]
