What was it I was wishing for yesterday? A laptop, you say? Well, as so very many other necessities and desires have fallen into my lap (get it, lap?!), so has exactly that. Neighbor Teri gave me her old one. It's not ancient, it powers up, it will connect to the internet once I get a router (are you listening, universe?) and it was free (to me, anyway.) I know I've rambled on and on at times about how blessed I am and how wondrous my friends are, but seriously. Seriously. My life is flat-out charmed.
So Martin and I played the roles of "Unconventional Separated Couple" again today. He brought over turkey, ham and dressing while I made a roasted vegetable tart, mashed sweet potatoes and pumpkin cheesecake. We enjoyed a lovely lunch that was reasonably stress-free then he swept the kids off to a movie while I went to work to prepare and serve dinner. All in all, nothing shy of a dandy day.
And for that I'm grateful. Happy Thanksgiving.
