A quiet day today for our little family. I took Ollie for a walk in woods filled with a light cover of snow that sparkled in the cold sunlight.
With a week to go ’til my due date, we didn’t think it would be wise to go to Maine for the family meal. Likewise, planning a big meal and inviting lots of people seemed dicey. So we settled for a low key turkey day on our own and a steak dinner in place of the bird.
I’ll admit that I was kind of hoping the baby might make an early appearance. Adrian is punctual to a fault and prefers to be early. But this baby is half Lindholm and Lindholms are not known for their great sense of timing, to put it kindly. So no baby today.
But I’m feeling thankful for all we have. Given that Adrian found out last week that he tore his quad and is looking at a 3-6 month recovery, I’m grateful just to be able to make my way around the trails, even if it does require more huffing and puffing than it used to.
We’ve got wonderful friends and colleagues. Neighbors helping us out. And family that loves and supports us. I’m thankful for all of them.
And I’m working on being thankful for however many more days we have as just the three of us. Ollie has no idea what’s about to happen to him. For that matter, neither do Adrian or I!
Whether you celebrated with friends and family, or spent the day alone or working, Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
