Well, it’s that time of year….the time that they call “Thanksgiving” but is really all about turkey and football. I don’t care much for either turkey or football, but I have plenty of other things to be grateful for in my life. Here are just a few:
- My peeps. You’ve read it here time and again already. I am so fortunate to have many wonderful people in my life. Sometimes, they vex me. Sometimes, they crack me up. Sometimes, they even bring me cocktails. But always, I feel loved and supported.
- Pumpkin (and squash). From pumpkin pancakes to pumpkin pie to butternut squash ravioli…..I don’t know why this is supposed to be “seasonal”-I could eat this stuff all year long. Seriously.
- My microscopes. Because otherwise, what would I do with my days?
- Music. I’m still rockin’ the 6GB ipod mini that I bought in 2004. It holds about 1500 songs, and it’s always full.
I’m sure there’s more. I know I should talk about my health (which is good), my home (which continues to be more awesome all the time), and my freedom (me & Braveheart, baby, we’re like peas in a pod). And I am truly grateful for all of those things. But it’s early, and I’m just sitting in my groovy silver dining room enjoying my first cup of tea (which I totally should have put on this list!), and thinking how much I adore my family and friends. And pumpkin.
