Thanksgiving Weekend

Thank goodness Brin of MessyThrillingLife had a peaceful Thanksgiving -- she's had a rough year, including losing her beloved home, and it's good to see her starting to get back on a more even keel. She's spending the evening by the Christmas tree, enjoying a cup of hot chocolate and favorite books.

Our tree is still standing in the forest -- we couldn't get a permit fast enough to cut it this weekend. Nonetheless, I spent some lovely time starting up Stephen King's The Stand. (An amazing take on the fight between good and evil...and set partly in Boulder, which is doubly creepy.) Daughter #1 got me Charles Dickens' Christmas Stories, and I've also been reading those a bit at a time.

A nice holiday break, before work starts back in tomorrow.
