Happy Thanksgiving - Thankfulness

Happy Thanksgiving!

The forecast for today is partly sunny and the radar shows absolutely nothing, but there are a few snowflakes in the air and while it's not enough to cover things, it is enough to be noticeable. It's good and feels like a Thanksgiving day.

This won't be a long post and about all the things I'm thankful for, simply because I need to get the dressing made, prepare and roast the turkey and peel potatoes and sweet potatoes. I'm looking forward to all of the good smells to come.

So with a heart filled with thankfulness, for I have a life that is blessed, my hope for you this day is that it is shared with others you love and filled with joy.

Our turkeys were modeled from some we found here:

Howling wind

The wind is howling. Literally.

Usually I can hear the wind blow, but right now it is howling. It's the middle of the afternoon, but I feel like the sound belongs to darkness. I don't think I've ever heard it sound just quite like this. It's almost moaning.

Maybe it's those mystery books of my son's that I'm reading that lean toward science fiction. It's good there's only two and I'm almost halfway through the second. I like them, except for the sci-fi part of them. Well written and captivating. 

Ah, there, now the furnace is blowing and I can't hear the wind, which, like The Invisible Detective, can't be seen... only heard.
