But Quinn has a cough. No fever, nothing scary, but we want to give him some extra time to be warm under covers and rest up before all the guests arrive for Thanksgiving. I'm not entirely sure how many people will be here. I extended invitations to friends with indeterminate plans because I believe in always making extra space at the table, particularly on a day like Thanksgiving, but we don't know if anyone is taking us up on it or not.
In any case, I have a moment to write snuggled up here with my wheezing boy. He's agreed to help me make a list of what we are thankful for. (You can decide for yourselves who suggested what.)
We are thankful for:
• the dog not biting anyone lately
• our home
|Our cute, tiny tree before it lost its leaves|
• friends who still like us even after we ask them to replant trees
• touching the toad and touching the frog
• Aden and Mona
• nice teachers
• the cottage
• warm bed
A good list! Quinn just decided to go curl up in his own room for a bit, and I should probably clean something before going to work. If I don't have time to post again before the holiday, Happy Thanksgiving! May you also have the good fortunate to touch the toad and touch the frog.
