Happy Thanksgiving to all those who celebrate! I hope that those of you who don't are having wonderful Thursdays! 

It is decidedly strange to be sitting at work on a day when I know the majority of my friends and family are already rushing around preparing amazing Thanksgiving meals.  I keep thinking of all of you and wondering what you're doing. In case you're wondering, I'm writing up a report on my observations in one of my classrooms.  

Tonight, we're hosting a mini-Thanksgiving dinner. I'll be cooking a roasted turkey breast with stuffing and will serve sides of potatoes, brussel sprouts and cranberry sauce. There's already a pumpkin pie chilling in the fridge, waiting for whipped cream. It will be much smaller than I'm used to. We won't have all the foods that I usually serve. We don't even have enough chairs for the dining table. But it will be glorious.  

Somehow, amidst all my homesickness, I forgot why I love Thanksgiving so much. Yes, it's a lot about the fellowship and there's no denying I'm missing my fam and [ profile] kiribaby's fam right now, but I have my most important family here with me. But truly, it's about giving thanks and, man, I have a fuckton to be grateful for. My life is richly blessed and when I really stop to think about it, I am overcome with gratitude and joy.  

So today, when I'm so far away from one of my homes, I'm there with all of you in spirit. I'm with those of you who are feeling extra lonely this holiday and those of you who are celebrating with new loved ones. I'm with those of you who have to work and those who can't find work. We are all where we are on our journey and wherever that is, it's perfect. I hope all of are able to find your multitude of riches today, however small they might seem. 

Happy Thanksgiving, my lovelies. May your days be filled with love, laughter and gratitude.

I'm rather tired and low today. It's a combination of lots of things, including missing JJ something fierce and my stupid back hurting because I picked up a box that was too heavy (counting down to the chiro appointment at 11am). So...time for a good things list!

♥ Obviously, the first and most amazing! Go NY! I'm so fucking happy you've proved me wrong.

♥ The lovely [ profile] hermette has a pretty party going on. Go and play! Enjoy the preeeeety!

♥  I've been meaning to share this video for a while but can't figure out how to embed it. Anyway, I think it's one of the most beautiful, hopeful and heartwarming things I've seen in a while. Wes and Mark's wedding

♥ My Red Sox are making me obscenely happy. Long way to go and all that but damn, they're happy making. 

♥ There is the prospect of having the house to myself for awhile today. It's sad that this gets me so excited but, well, it does. I can't wait!

♥ Cooking shall be mine today! Yes, it shall! There will be chicken curry, brussel sprouts and peanut butter cookies. Maybe more!

Alright, I'm going to go do some stretching, get ready for the chiro and, most importantly, try to keep focusing on the positive. What's your good things for today?  <3

Today has been a not good day. How much like a broken record do I sound? Remember way back in 2005 when I was the eternally peppy one with too many exclamation points? Yeah, I miss those days.  There was a lot about that time that was pretty fucking awesome, tbh. 

Anyway, I planned to write a largely over dramatic post of whine which would have made Mish laugh and the rest of you roll your eyes but I can't do it. I'm annoyed with my whinging so I can't imagine how y'all feel.  

So, instead I propose a swap. I'm going to go and watch an episode or two of TW. Comment with something good...something in your life, a rec, a poem you love, Colin Morgan and when I get back I'll share something good with you.  (disclaimer: if i actually get sleepy (omg, please), I might not get back until tomorrow.) Also, if you don't see this til tomorrow, comment anyway. 'twill be good fun.
