Thanksgiving Day

Gilbert was here for the week.  Time passed so quickly, and now he is already on his way to go back East.  We went to San Francisco, where I got an opportunity to have Gilbert share a vegan meal with me, which was a very enjoyable one!  We also went to Reno, and this time it was most fun. 
Today was Thanksgiving.  My neighbor Lisa is a kind person who invited two more people (Frank and me) to an already bustling household that she was cooking for.  I had a great time.  I made sure to bring coffee and yummies.  We ended up poring over all the Black Friday sales, trying to figure out where the best deals were to be had.  Honestly, I am going to save my money.  I am going to L.A. very soon, and I much rather spend my hard earned money there. 
As for Christmas/Yule, well, I am working on that.  As much as they say no, I am determined to send a little something to my family.  I made it a point to call my mom, sister, dad, grandmom, my brother, and even my half-brother for a quick hello on my lunch break today.  Oh, did I not mention that I worked today?  Yea.  At least I got time and a half.  I am also working tomorrow, which I have been warned by my well-meaning new coworkers is going to be bananas.  Black Friday and all.   Let’s just say that I am really looking forward to Saturday.  I am going to make sure that I squeeze in some me-time.  I have a book that I really want to pay attention to. 
I am thankful that I have a job that not only gives me unlimited free coffee, but also provides me with affordable healthcare.  I am thankful that I have a nice neighbor like Lisa who always tries to include me when she can.  I am thankful that my family is all in good health.  I am thankful that I can sit here quietly, and listen to the gentle tick-tock of all the wonderful clocks in my home. 
I have sent Frank my incomplete Christmas wish list.  Wait… I just thought of something else that I should add to it!
