It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Happy Thanksgiving!

We’re celebrating in non-traditional style here. The husband is off to a cottage to enjoy some peace and serenity and Very Traditional Plumbing. The boy went off to his dad’s girlfriend’s for turkey dinner. The big girl will have Thanksgiving Dinner with her aunt in the city in which she attends university. The younger (but still big) girl and I spent a couple of hours reading on the sun-filled porch, our chairs facing each other, feet resting in the other guy’s chair. Then we went out for highly traditional nachos and salad.

I am thankful for time and space and serenity. For children I love. For a wonderful man.

Today we will lounge around, do a little housework, visit some friends, sit on the porch and watch the leaves fall.

Which is exactly what I want to do.
