I’ve finished my morning walk, had a slow cup of coffee and stood watching the gray rain fall. A gloomy, post-holiday Monday befalls us – a “cyber” Monday, as they say. If only it were non-corporeal.
Despite my best attempts to ignore my nagging urge to succumb to Monday’s blues I am thankful
- that I have work that I love,
- I am sheltered from the rain,
- I am able to play hard.
For what are you thankful?
This year we decided to spend the entire holiday week actually on holiday – away with friends, in surf and sand.
This morning we started cooking in a strange kitchen, making the best of what we have (have you seen a large casserole dish? does anyone have an extra onion? what is a good substitute for maple syrup?), and sharing our favorite childhood Thanksgiving Day dishes.
The house is packed to the brim with gratitude, and I am just happy to be here.
Happy Thanksgiving, be good to each other!
