A Thanksgiving thought

I'll keep this brief - this is my favorite holiday; always has been.  It's the one day that doesn't mean buying/giving gifts; it's about spending time with the people you love - at least the ones who can be with on that day - and to think about all the good things that I have.  And my life is filled with nothing but good things.

I have what I want; what I need and nothing more.  I don't think about what I "haven't got" because there isn't any of that.  I have the essentials and some nice little superficial additions.  And that's plenty.

So enjoy this day and savor it.  Look around and smile at what IS.

Cold day in the sun

Finally, a sense of seasonal balance; a chill is finally in the air and we're how far into autumn?  Ye gods...  Usually, one of my favorite times of year, but like spring, it's been non-existent for the last few years.

It's been great - having the last few Fridays off from work; in an effort to use up the extraordinary amount of personal time I have available and to do a few things to help get me moving with music, working out, etc.  Today's plan is to run a few quick errands and then set up the new drums. Once that's been taken care of, it's time to set things up for the "new adventure" (which I'll announce during the holidays) and start to focus on what's ahead when I have my Xmas break...

...Which, of course, leads to the idea of starting my annual list - taking care of the I.R.A. contributions, the winter purging, the gym schedule, etc.  It'll be a nice and lengthy break and hopefully one I can profit from.  But that's a month away.

In the meantime, the focus now is to get the Thanksgiving groceries tomorrow and make sure we can prep early starting on Wednesday...
