The fire is on, coffee at my side. Kidlet doesn't have a concussion (an accident on the monkey bars yesterday). Hubby has the creeping crud (coff, coff). We are in for the day. And I am grateful. Grateful for my family and the love and support they gave me during this crazy year. Grateful for our generous and kind friends. The old, old dog who is able to jump on the couch for a nap. The cozy house. The aspen tree in the yard that finally got yellow leaves for fall. A job that pays the bills. Good yarn. An education that keeps expanding my world view. Food, glorious food (there will be plenty of that today).

Our farmer brought us tiny Tom and we have porcini mushroom stuffing, mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus, cranberry orange sauce, spinach salad with maple walnuts and and goat cheese, pumpkin pie as well as a couple bottles of wine.

I actually feel ready to dive headlong into this holiday season. My heart and mind are in the right place and (I think) I'm ready to brave any topsy turveyness that may come my way. I wish you a happy full day, friends. Enjoy!
