I've Got Plenty to be Thankful For

Even if I think my stylist cut my hair too short last time and I look vaguely like the sculpture of a Greek athlete. 

I have a wonderful wife
A great house
Family 
Cuddly pets
Good friends
A good job
Some modicum of talent
I want for nothing (important, anyway)
My vehicle is in good condition and running (knock wood)
Our table was laden for dinner
We have plenty of leftovers
Pie
Nice neighbors
A decent savings account
Good insurance

And in a slightly cynical political tone, I'm not sure if I gained it because I'm white, or in spite of the fact I'm female and lesbian. 

Our turkey did a strange thing -- it was well cooked, and the temperature was heading up to 155, so I figured it done, but as we carved, we found that deep inside and underneath it was still a little "unsafe" looking.  So we cut off the top and put the bottom back in the oven.  Never had a bird do that before.  The gravy came out great and it was fantastic stuffing, so all well in the end.  Roasted the yams and potatoes together with carrots, which came out very tasty; and broccoli for the green veggie.  There's a relish tray here with more carrots, celery, olives, and radishes from the Farmers Market. 

All delicious. 

The official start of the Christmas season:  Santa arrives in Herald Square.  

I still can't find that vignette I know I wrote.  Dang it, dang it.  I wonder if I can re-create it.  (If I do, I'll be sure to find the original.)

Have a delightful, wonderful, bountiful Thanksgiving, everyone.  Unless you live in another country, in which case just have a nice day.

It seems every year something weird happens with some common dish -- like the year the fat decided to split from the flour & water in my gravy. It was WEIRD. But overall... not bad at all.

Mine was the pre-diced sweet potatoes spoiled so fast I had to toss my side dish out.

This post made me happy. I love it when things are going well for the people I'm thankful to know.
