LD baked two pumpkin cream cheese pies and I did two traditional pumpkin pies. Diego is happy and is waiting to go over the river and through the woods (or up the freeway anyway).
I’m thinking that this has been an amazing (great astonishment) year. I want it to be crystal clear. Amazing to me does not mean wonderful. It means what it means…great astonishment.
In March, the Blur of Fur became a part of our family. He has settled in nicely and I couldn’t imagine our lives without him.
In May, our life changed and California took the lead in offering equality for all its citizenry. In June, we took part in the great rite of passage and got married. In October, we had a grand celebration with all our family and friends.
In November, there was great happiness and anticipation that things in our country will finally change for the better. However, the question equal rights for the citizens of California was called into question. I am ready to move to Connecticut.
As LD, Diego and I make our way to Sun City and Chula Vista to celebrate the day, I wanted to take time to reflect on the enormity of the year. It was filled with great joy and filled with disappointment. And for ALL this, I am thankful.
Now, I’ll stop blubbering and its on to turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing and pie! Times 2!
HAPPY TURKEY DAY EVERYONE!
