Thanksgiving (November 17, 2006)

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday to spend with family because of the lazy long weekend, good food, and minimal shopping requirements. We have a big veggie meal (Long live the turkey!) and good pie.

Cozy indoors, we enjoy the aromas of our impending meal--the squash, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and gravy--and we find The Kitties playing in the backyard on one of the last warm days of the year.

The full trees have changed colors and the leaves are all on the verge of falling. The brisk wind gives the hint of winter, and we can almost see the snow on its way.

As we watch through the kitchen window with our hands wrapped around hot cups of tea, Simon suddenly realizes that there are plenty of laps available in the house for his next nap.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Every day, Simon spends several hours thinking. Every so often, things become clear to him.
