Happy Thanksgiving!

This has always been a non-denominational holiday for me, filled with loving appreciation of the family and friends that form the fabric of my life. Over the past decade or so, I’ve settled into a routine regarding the menu for the day and in a few hours I’ll be doing the non-dairy version of roast Cornish hens, mounds and mounds of mashed potatoes and steamed veggies. And since I’m driving the menu, I’m roasting a fillet of rainbow trout for me. Looks like all the kids (except Tim who’s in Florida) will be here for the event. I’m glad Sammy got back from NYC in time for this.
In this household “Canadian” Thanksgiving is only part of the story. KJ does her version of dinner on the “American” version of the day with one big bird instead of a bunch of little ones 🙂
Other than that, I’ve spent some time today purging my contact lists. There’s really no point in following folks I “worked” with but never met over the course of five years at BR- those contacts were for business purposes only and I’m not involved in that business any longer. There’s been a kind of “lag time” for me to acknowledge the extent to which my death changed my life 😉
