Happy Turkey Day!
I had big plans to start this post on Thanksgiving morning before the day truly kicked off. Sipping hot chocolate while watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade…strategizing timing for cooking the holiday meal…paging through the stack of Black Friday ads in the morning paper and strategizing timing for tomorrow morning’s shopping…
But I couldn’t get a single moment on the computer, and now it’s mid afternoon, the turkey’s in the oven, the family’s gone off to watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and I’m nursing a headache with an RC cola. The Christmas decorations have been pulled out of the attic and are slowly but surely edging out Thanksgiving and ushering in Christmas.
There is still time, though, for me to tell you how thankful I am for my blog readers (particularly you commenters) who alleviate some of the solitude of the writing life. Every comment is like a little pop-in visit from a neighbor, and I treasure them all. You make me smile; you make me laugh; you make me think; and you make me glad to be a blogger, most especially on the days in which it’s nearly impossible to think of a post topic (or even more challenging, an interesting one).
So thank you, my blog friends. I truly appreciate you!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families!
