I've felt not great this week, including on Thanksgiving, despite Benlysta on Monday. Or maybe because of it? I did enjoy the day, spent with my Sweetie and a friend. It was perfectly low key.

Spatchcocked turkey
I helped with the pie
The cook's treat (leftover pie crust rolled with cinnamon sugar)
was not a success. I neglected to set a timer.
All the food was delicious, the company pleasant, and the long weekend is very welcome. I hope you all enjoyed your holiday, or ordinary Thursday, as well!

Happy Thanksgiving

This has been a difficult year on many fronts. Through all that I've been incredibly grateful for friends, new and old. For a medication that gives me enough function to enjoy life. For a fulfilling volunteer job, especially now that some friction has been resolved. And for a sweetheart who is more than I could have asked for.

I wish you all a happy Thanksgiving, however you spend it. And love and good company always.

Happy Thoughts

It's been a week. I won't dwell on my fears. Instead I'll share some positives.

Last Monday I visited a friend in Centralia (85mi south). She made me two beaded shawl pins to match my Watermelon Daybreak shawl. I knit on it while we sat together in her husband's hospital room this May.

I've worked hard to make a good life and to become the woman I am. I'm lucky enough to have assembled a team of friends who genuinely like me and I even have a sweetheart :)

Plus I live in a city where even the sidewalk gardens can be motivational:
Hang in there
