Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is tomorrow and the kids are going to be with us. What’s the perfect Thanksgiving without having your kids? May there be champagne. May there be great love because we all need more of it. I am grateful for my children for being wonderful and for loving me. I am grateful for a few good friends, for trees and sky, for times when I don’t have anything that I have to do. May there be more of them. Tonight we start with the pies. Tomorrow morning I’ll go for a run before I start cooking. Don’t know how far just so I get going on the running.
