1). Pookie is home – yay! So is Small Son’s lovely girlfriend. We miss Humbly Ann and her betrothed a lot but we are happy to be together.
2). I lost my glasses the other day and have to buy a new pair and I wear progressive lenses that are very expensive – boo!
3). I love the Internets which is allowing me to purchase new glasses (the exact ones I lost) for $270 instead of the $478 they would cost elsewhere.
4). My arms are sore from swimming but it hurts so good
5). I joined the local Race Club today and I’m looking forward to being a part of a group of people who race even if I will be one of the slow ones.
6). I decided to sign up for Wildflower (Olympic Distance). I hope I get a slot.
Last but best is this. I love Thanksgiving. It is a holiday unburdened by any agenda other than getting together with family and friends and eating a lot of really great food and counting our blessings. I’m feeling particularly blessed this year as I do just about every year. I have 3 fantabulous children, we are all healthy, we are all well supported financially either by our own labors (Go Humbly Ann!) or by mine, and we love each other. Our family is about to grow by 1 (Go Humbly Ann!) and we all love my soon to be son in law and those of us who have met the rest of his family love them, too. I see large, fun, extended family gatherings in our future.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in blogland – may your own accounting of blessings make you smile. And that goes for you Canadians, as well.
