The week has gone quickly. . .and we’ve enjoyed it. We have watched “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” at least 5 times, and eaten our weight in turkey and pumpkin crunch–played board games at Nana and Papaw’s house, played Turkey Ball (my husband and his high school friends began having a Turkey Bowl and Donut Scarf 21 years ago when they were about 17–the tradition continues, though now it’s the offspring who are playing–the founders prefer to coach), had a cold that I could actually nurse without missing school, sort of reclaimed my kitchen and laundry area, talked to my mother on the phone about 6 times. A busy and enjoyable week for sure.
Darkness is falling outside–the kids and Tony are in the back yard–he is mending crab nets so when he tries to catch some tomorrow they don’t escape. Victoria is raking leaves into a pile while wearing her candy cane pajamas. Thad is sitting in the grass playing with a Chinese Yo-Yo–the paper ones that snap back–now he’s just beating it on the ground and waving it to and fro–possibly imagining his own Nascar race. . .time to fix dinner–hug children–take care of the husband.
Hope you had a good week too.
