Just a wonderful Thanksgiving today...
Got my Portal Page illustration for 'Gift' done, and my animation underway (reading 3 hrs left, been running for around 11).
The most wonderful weather for Thanksgiving--SNOW! Big fluffy twirling-around flakes falling from mid-morning through most of the afternoon, so so gorgeous--but hardly any sticking, a blessing for travelers. Snowfall on Thanksgiving Day is just so right.
A simply wonderful time with the Towners (family friends) for some eight hours. It was the smallest Thanksgiving gathering I've had in my life--just four of us--but we still had a great time.
The loads of food they pressed upon me to bring home (bananas, clementines, rolls, turkey, slices of three varieties of pie...).
Comments on 'Hened' from Shanra! *squee-glomp*
And the most wonderful time of the year opening up--though I'll wait until December 1st before I start celebrating winter and Christmas. Come, winter, come!
You know, I feel Australia misses out a bit, not having a Thanksgiving holiday. It's important to preserve a sense of gratitude. Not that I need a holiday to continue preserving it in my own way, but still...
I'm glad to hear you had such a wonderful day. I hope it has been a ray of light.
It is a simply wonderful holiday, even if some people view it as a chance for gluttony and watching 3 football games back to back. ;) Like many holidays, it all depends upon the viewpoint ones brings to it.
It was a magnificent day, for which I'm grateful, since work is going to be a killer today. (I really should be covering partially/completely for four people, but that's patently impossible!)
*flounces at time* I was thinking Thanksgiving was today. (i.e. the 23rd) And I was going to join the Triune community today instead of yesterday because of that and because I thought it'd coincide nicely with a holiday that you enjoy so much. *pouts at time*
Oh, well. I left story comments that were entirely my pleasure to leave instead then. ^-^ Glad to hear that you had such a wonderful day indeed!
*grins* It's the one oddball holiday that's on the same day of the week each year--as a Thursday. Blame it on Abraham Lincoln for choosing the last Thursday of November. ;) But thanks for the kind thought!
We had a party at work over lunch, so I just might get to those comments tonight. Thanks again!
