Hello to you. How are you in your today? It’s 3:07pm here as I begin to write to you. Today was changing sheets on the bed, doing laundry, getting groceries and I mostly spent time outside drawing. I got an adorable picture of Link with his tongue sticking out at me. Sent my Aunt Ruth a picture of me outside (before coloring my hair, I caved to a bit of vanity – not ready to go gray yet!) to wish her Happy birthday today. Wanted her to see a smile with my texted sentiments of loving and missing her on her special day!
I read the letter Mom wrote to me this morning. These last lines of the letter had me crying for quite a few minutes it touched me so much, “Well, I really don’t have much to write about – you understand don’t you! Anyway I like to let you know that we are thinking of you.” Some times that is the reason I keep up with this blog! Another Thanksgiving passes with us passing these sentiments across the miles…..where is my transporter lol?! Home! Now! We were going to go last year, but “me” happened and we had to cancel. I also made another glue gun ring for my faux Alexandrite stone I really like.
We will be celebrating Thanksgiving with Kyle’s family. I’m so proud of his Mom as she took my advice about trying something besides the traditional meal….make it a little easier on her. We are doing a pizza party like my friend Les does with her family for the holiday. I can remember Les telling me about how one time they actually had authentic Chicago style pizza’s flown in lol. It’s important to find your own way to celebrate special occasions and not get stuck in traditions that may not suite who you are anymore.
As a kid and young woman, I can remember part of celebrating Thanksgiving involved going to the Mall for Black Friday sales. Doing that isn’t part of my life anymore. I would much rather spend time with people I love than go shopping for more shite nobody needs! Some people really enjoy the thrill of the hunt for sales and all that – good for them. Not my thing. I really don’t enjoy shopping these days.
Anyhew — love, hugs and best wishes through the wires to you!
