Sunday’s wind was ferocious, especially with temperatures well below freezing. It was a good day to stay home, drink tea, read books, and just be quiet.
With daylight so fleeting, it can be a melancholy time of year. In fact, that sad, wistful feeling seems to be making the rounds. All we can do is force ourselves out into the air and remember to take time to savor the small joys of life.
Go ahead, live dangerously, put a little whole milk or even cream in that tea! The extra calories will keep you warm during this dark time.
I wish all of my readers and friends a cozy Thanksgiving. Give your beloveds extra hugs if they are with you.
And to those of you in far-flung places, know that you are missed, and that your place at the table is open and set for your return.
Happy Thanksgiving to you, too, Judith!

Thank you for that sentiment, Judith. It was deeply, deeply appreciated.

I’m chuckling at this, Judith. Without being able to exercise right now, I’m having to be verrrrrry careful. But I couldn’t agree more that to deprive ourselves of everything is silly and we ought to enjoy what we can – including a little whole milk in our tea and coffee if we like, and a few other indulgences… in moderation.
A very happy holiday season to you and yours!
