9:14 PM: giving thanks
happy thanksgiving, all. we had some friends over today for thanksgving dinner: mph w/ his wife alison & their son ben, jalex & mari. michaelmas, feeling group-phobic, stayed home w/ arwen. not ever having hosted a thanksgving meal before, it was a bit of a relief to discover we had a pleasant time and that it wasn't even very stressful to prepare for it or clean up after it (the last load of dishes has just finished and the tablecloths & napkins need to be put in the dryer). heck, i even made placecards for the table settings.
i am grateful to be here, to be alive & breathing w/ leftover turkey in the refrigerator and a comfy couch to blog from. thanks, universe.
