Mr Husband and I went to the Midwest for Thanksgiving this year,
meeting up with the rest of his siblings and his parents.
We stayed at a rustic lodge + old house.
We had nice visits, walks, games and good food.
The surrounding countryside was really beautiful.
We got back later than we hoped yesterday, due to a
flight delay, but the house was pretty much in order,
with Cleo's substitute sitter doing mostly a good job; we did have
a very talkative MEOW MEOW Cleo to come back to.
Today begins the Nativity Fast for us who are on the Julian Calendar.
I both feel ready for this fast and not ready; as if life is just whirling
so quickly that days are melting away before they begin.
