Gobble, gobble

In the "nobody will notice unless I say something" department, I'm heading to my mom's for a few days for that turkey holiday thingie, and may not be reading (as much as usual) or updating. Where I'm going, there's a lake effect snow advisory for tomorrow, 5 to 7 inches of the yucky stuff or maybe more. I'm sure it will be an amusing little drive. (For rather odd values of "amusing.") Hopefully it will be relatively uneventful. I'm not taking the cats this time -- the cat sitter will be stopping by morning & evening.

I've been rather cranky and dissatisfied lately, so I'm going to try to use this holiday to remind myself that I have much to be thankful for. Y'all would be a part of that. The little connections I've found here, the generosity of so many of you in sharing a part of your lives, the common ground. And the poetry -- I'm thankful for the poets many of you have recommended and for the poems many of you have written and published -- some of which I might never have stumbled across without this blogging thing. So to all of you, thanks -- mahalo -- blessings. And if you are traveling this holiday (or if you're not), be safe.

Hi Anne
I've just stumbled here from Paul Guest's blog. Nice to meet you ! I'll bookmark you and come back regularly.

We don't do the Thanksgiving thang over here for obvious reasons, but bearing in mind those first Americans were British by birth I'll send you and your loved one my good wishes.

Enjoy that snow ! We've got some forecast for the end of the week.

That should have been "loved ones" ! My mind moves too quickly for my fingers.

Have a great time, Anne. You're one of the people that make this internet place so cozy. Be safe, & if the snow comes, enjoy it!

May the snow be minimal and calming, the family just what you need. When I read your blog, everything seems that much warmer, even in these months of less light. The words tender and candid come to mind. Cheers.
