I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving.

We had a good, and reasonably quiet time here. A good sit-down dinner, a judicious amount of leftovers, and the satisfaction of getting some chores done and squared away. I also did some paperwork on the self-publishing front, so at least now I have a pretty good idea about how many books I’ve actually moved at this point. More than I thought, honestly.

Back to normal tomorrow. And, hey, Christmas! That’ll be fun.

A Pictureless Thanksgiving.

No cameras at the table. We had a very good time of it, though. I used the Roast Chicken recipe from An Unexpected Cookbook, my wife made the stuffing, we roasted the potatoes in the chicken drippings, and steamed up some green beans for vitamins. The bird came out fine and the potatoes were just about perfect*. We had a very nice family dinner with our two kids, and somebody else gets to unload and load the dishwasher for once.

This is rather nicer than traveling.

*My wife also made a blackberry pie, but she announced quite hurriedly after eating a slice that it was horrible and that nobody else should touch it. I intend to test this later, with vanilla ice cream.

Thanksgiving holiday posting now in effect!

I spent the day doing stuff with my kids, and my wife and I are spending tomorrow doing cooking. Friday we eat leftovers, and generally laze about. I am giving serious consideration to go see NAPOLEON Saturday, but only if I can convince my wife to go do something fun, herself. There’s stuff going on Sunday, too. In other words: light posting. We’ll catch up later.

PS: I am thankful for a great many things, very much including my readers and supporters. I hope you all have an excellent holiday.

So, my wife just casually threw together a complete Thanksgiving Day dinner…

…in a day, while I was in isolation. And I mean complete. Turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, corn, stuffing, and cranberry sauce. Dessert is apparently pumpkin pie and cinnamon bagel bread pudding with whiskey sauce, because when she gets to this level it’s easy for her to maintain it.

I obviously don’t want to be in isolation, but this makes it a lot more tolerable.

Kind of busy weekend this weekend.

A combination of getting Backerkit ready and trying to catch up on all the first edits for TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION. And Thanksgiving week is gonna be weird this year, because I don’t know how much stuff the teachers are going to make the kids do before their half-days are over. If it was a normal month, I’d expect them not to be doing anything. As it is… :shrug:

But we go on. Have a good week this week, folks. Even if it gets aggravating. Things do continue on.
