With a conscious decision to avoid what might be called Black Friday shopping rituals, I have spent a peaceful day at home (Yes - I do have a home office too).
I might have felt full yesterday, but I seem to have added to it all today. In what might be an excess of good food, my wife has kept me stoked - mostly with turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potato and "stuffing". And with this comes a strange sensation of having to close my eyes.
We had a great Thanksgiving with all appropiate relatives checking in. A turkey for two, however, is quite a survival exercise, something to be overcome. Must be good training for the Christmas Season.
I give thanks for living in a country of relative plenty, where generosity and sharing abound, and where the people pause to reflect their blessings.
