One of our favorite holidays is Thanksgiving. Mostly I think because we have so much to be thankful for.  Ted is still here after more than six years and still going strong. We have a roof over our heads, and I am gainfully employed doing what I love.  Our other family members are doing well too, so that's all that really counts to us. 

Ted and I  spent a quiet day at home.  I normally cook up a storm, but work has taken up a lot of my extra energy this quarter (I teach), so this year, I bought the entire dinner from my favorite local sustainable, organic store, New Seasons.  (Shhh--I don't normally do that.)

This weekend we will be busy with friends.  We have a post Thanksgiving party to attend and a champagne brunch with friends.  We are looking forward to both. 

If you noticed, I haven't posted much lately.  That's a side effect of my returning to work.  Ted is still doing well.  Recently he was feeling fatigued, like he felt two years ago when they realized that his adrenal system had been damaged by radiation, so I made an appointment with his endocrinologist.  After a series of blood work, they determined he was hyperthyroid again, so they upped his meds and he's like new again.   I'm so thankful for modern medicine!
