Preparing to be thankful

Well, I missed a week. Keeping quite busy. In fact, I overdid it a little, and crashed. Have to remember to schedule self-nourishment when working with time management systems.

Tomorrow, we head north to Albuquerque and spend the holiday with David and Susan and Kaitlyn. Every year, I appreciate Thanksgiving more. The whole concept, of taking time to give thanks, is nourishing to self and world.

It helps that we have been relaxing about exactly how we celebrate Thanksgiving. We all like turkey, so we do a turkey. Side dishes are fewer each year, and the whole idea of rushing to get things right diminishes each year, too. I like cooking in a turkey bag -- less planning ahead, more moisture left in the bird. David is brining one this year. I'll be interested to see how that turns out.

We're too far from home to gather with family this year. We've all sent each other messages. We know we are thinking of each other, and that's enough.

May you all have as simple or rich a celebration as you wish this year.
