This is one thing I am grateful for: even on a bad weather day when the cats refused to go out, there were no fights. Sophie the dog even gave Buddy the cat a bath.
I am grateful for this bad weather because it is creating dense fog, which I love, all around the mountain.
I am grateful that even though Vermont Public Radio went all-(boring-political)-talk, which essentially cut me off from their classical music, I am now able (just today, in fact, for the first time) to listen to VPR Classical by streaming the music over the Internet. I plug the computer speakers into other speakers so that I can hear the music wherever I am in the house. But shame on VPR for stranding us in remote areas without our music. Marketing trumps goodwill again.
I am grateful for the phone calls, e-mails and computer chats that I had today. I have not been forgotten. Except by the church ladies. I will be resigning my seat on the parish council in two weeks because their meetings conflict with my new class schedule at the college this next semester. The church and I have grown apart, which breaks my heart. I am losing yet one more family.
I am grateful that as an instructor at the community college, I can audit classes for free. I will be taking a digital photography course in the spring.
I am grateful for four days off from work.
I am grateful that Buddy will now sleep in a cat bed next to me and my MacBook instead of on my MacBook.
I hope you all had a quiet and peaceful Thanksgiving with those you love, as I did.
