I love me some food at Thanksgiving (to be honest, I love food pretty much all of the time). And I'm not accustomed to family conversations about what we're thankful for. However, I think there is value in actually taking a time out to really think about the people and things we are thankful for.
I've never really understood cloth napkins. I mean, you need to wash them them after each meal. Seems like a bit too much cleaning to me. That said, as I've gotten older (ugh, maybe I should say "wiser"?), I've realized that paper towels and paper napkins are on the wasteful side. So I recently invested in my very first, super adult cloth napkins.
Ugh, I have been falling behind. Yep, it's a week until Thanksgiving and I am just now putting these up. You know what's worse? I have a few more Thanksgiving things to put up over the next couple of days...and those will be even closer to the holiday.
I have spent many a day (turned into evenings, turned into late nights) with a book in my hands. I've gotten lost in the hopeful prairie towns of the 1800s, the promise of far off worlds of the future, the despair of WWII, and the warnings of group think.
