Thanksgiving was lovely

And I hope all of yours was too.

The Kid and SIL picked me up, we got to the restaurant a bit late because there was heavy traffic on the LIE, but in the long run that didn't matter. Oldest Brother, Middle Brother and Aunt Helen were already seated, so we joined them. The food was, as last year, excellent, and I'm afraid we all stuffed. Sadly it had to end, Oldest Brother had to get to work, Middle Brother had to be taken back to his group home to meet the person who was taking him to her home for the evening (the group home has no one there Thanksgiving so since he wouldn't be with us all day he had to go home with someone, this is what they do with the clients, rather nice I think) and of course The Kid and SIL had to get home. So we took Aunt Helen home first and saw her into the house, and then they took me home. And I have spent the rest of the evening rereading the Rivers of London books. Into the second one now.

A Twice as Long Gratitude List for Thanksgiving:

1. My brothers.

2. The Kid and SIL.

3. Aunt Helen is still with us at 87.

4. Middle Brother's group home people.

5. Delicious restaurant.

6. Good books.

7. My cats and their medical care which keeps them healthy.

8. I have a good job.

9. Time off.

10. Friends.

11. My program and my meetings and the people there.

12. My Higher Power always with me.
