I am tempted to go over the top and describe the sun shining in through the window and the crisp morning garden, but I will not.
I will only say Nick is up making coffee, and soon I will pick some spinach from the garden, eggs from the coop, and make an omelet.
But this is our everyday routine. As much as we try, we sometimes forget how much we have to be thankful for.

My family always gets together in Marin for Thanksgiving, I look forward to it every year. All of us, over twenty people usually, gather around to catch up with each other and eat the hors d'oeuvres everyone has contributed (we are going to bring some kind of cured meat, soft cheese, homemade jam concoction). I have the good fortune of coming from a family of talented cooks and amazing palates, so everything on the table is so good that by the time dinner is ready I am already full. I am not even going to try to pace myself this year, I am going to be thankful for everything I eat, and wear a full skirt, and maybe even take a nap.
I hope everyone is mindful of their abundance today. Feel deeply, feel grateful, eat good food with good people, remember that we are all good people.
