Gobble Gobble Gobble

So how does a single vegetarian with family in MI and a boyfriend in CA celebrate Thanksgiving, anyway? Well, I'll tell you how this one does -- and it is not by sitting around feeling sorry for herself. Some of my best Thanksgivings have been quiet, solo affairs and - looking at the pink sky sunrise happening out there right now - I expect today to be in the top five.

I have so much to be thankful for these days - a cozy condo on SPI to call my own; a beautiful garden that gives me great joy; good friends who say skip the bird and come over for pie; a certain someone I happen to be crazy about who is flying me out to CA next week to carve sand with him; a loving family that will (mostly) be here on the island in just a few weeks; enough work to get me through the winter and two sweet puppies who are going to get turkey jerky treats today (just because I don't eat bird doesn't mean they don't.)

Today I plan to get some web updating done and then embark on a new project that will allow me to work outside on this gorgeous day - creating stepping stones for a garden path. (It is an ambitious plan, one that I expect will take years to finish.) And I will let the dogs take me to the beach; I will enjoy that tasty garlic parmesan focaccia I found at Walmart yesterday (make more of that stuff, please and thank you-- it's really yummy!) and a glass or two of a nice red wine...

And then I am going to claim that piece of pie.

I believe that Friday afternoon I will get started building Toasty the Sandman on the beach at Wanna Wanna. Stop by if you are in the neighborhood - I will have a spare shovel or two for anyone wanting to work off some of today's excess.

Happy Thanksgiving!

at wanna wanna friday--no toasty. A quiet thanksgiving for us, love no big confusions and a lovely visit with one "child" (we won't discuss the age!!)
When are you going to the SF area?

Yeah well...
I guess I am Scrooging out this week.
I booked a lot of lessons and then started worrying about getting things done before I leave town and...
we may yet see Toasty this season -- but it won't be this weekend. (But thanks for coming to check, anyway!)

I leave for CA on Wed., returning on the 4th. Really looking forward to a change in scenery and spending some quality time with my sweetie. :)

We all know you have your own life to live, SF, but tons of folks came down to Wanna asking about you. Some came from as far away as Minnestota. Brian the bartender was like "no see no tell" and quite a few left after a boozy drink. No big deal but if we had some SOBs there I could have sold 30 tickets! Um, you know what I mean, figuratively.

We're just like you, SF, so no worries and that was meant as a really big compliment, not as a criticism.
