Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you. -- Carl Sandburg
There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- goddammit, you've got to be kind. -- Kurt Vonnegut

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  Boy does that turkey look like a dinosaur!  This year, I'm thankful I stayed home alone with the critters and didn't give my cold to anyone.  I don't feel up to a big dinner anyway.  Last week, I went to the Big Island, Hawaii for a wonderful week but the long, exhausting plane ride home seems to have made me succumb to a cold.  It has been years since I've had a cold, so I can be grateful that it rarely happens.  I can also be grateful that it isn't causing asthma.  I'm thankful I have such a nice neighbor who took such good care of the critters while I was away too.  My girl cat, Nissa has been pretty glued to me since I got back.  The dog is a bit more pushy in asking for pets but otherwise showing no trauma from my absence     It's been 3 years since I took a trip away from the cats and this dog had never been away from me.

Today, I took advantage of warmish weather and evicted the last of the carpenter bees from one of the jambs on my front door.  I cut a replacement piece and started filling a tunnel with putty to start the repair.  That just about did me in for today.  Lots of herb tea, vitamin C, and sleep to get over the cold.

Hope everyone has a nice thanksgiving.
