Well I had the perfect thankgiving day.  Everyone for a change in a good mood and all the food got cooked with no disasters. I got a vase of roses even.
I was worried that I wouldnt be in the spirit. The 19th my dear fur baby passed and I havent been feeling very balanced since.

She had the most beautiful storys end. Firstly I couldnt feel more relieved that she wasnt  in pain and that she very gently slipped away. We took the body to my parents mountain property. There was a bit of fog, the oak trees were contrasted so gorgeously with their grey bark and golden yellow leaves in slanting morning sun. It was so quiet and barely a breeze. It seemed certain purposeful puffs of wind would hit the trees making just a handful or so of leaves sprinkle down occasionally. It was magical. That helped truely and Im very grateful for it.

Getting back to today.   I helped my mom make homeade tatoe salad. No one tops moms potatoe salad! *scarfs*We also had meatloaf and cranberries! For the last few years we have been makin meal sugestions to keep mom from using the dreaded sage again.My mom loves to use the whole fresh sage leafs..alot!  I mean bite into stuffing taste green !Mom doesnt realize this is gross.>_<  no one wants to tell her ..mom can be agressive. I am the only one who ever ever stands up to her. Today she was sweet as could be.

Anyway thinking about the left over potatoe salad I get to relish tomorrow. Simple pleasures  huh

Wait a minute - How do YOU have a small network? You are talented, say plesant funny things, and make pretty little dolls. Me, on the other hand, even if you get past the scars and motor grease, the view isn't much better, lol. Plus, i don't get out much. Hell, I shop for friends at the bargain bin at Friends 'R' Us, lol. (you'd be amazed at what they try to GIVE away. Even I'm not that desperate) So what gives there sleet? I know you're cool. Didn't you get the memo, lol?

Hey, I'll bring the chocolate sauce and caramel kid. I work for myself doing drafting, and mainly only in tandem with a single building designer. So there is my social life and consequently, I don't get out much. The hours are regularly irregular for me and money at the moment is tight. Tight to the point of "X" due for rent saturday - I have 0.75 % of X. not good, lol. I didn't meant to give you grief, sleet. You are not alone though. I'll bring the Cherries too for your rocky road.

I hope thats for the icecream!LOL
My stepdad was a patent draftsman and graphic person for the base. Pretty brilliant technical draftsman. He encouraged me to draw. I used to help him adding human elements...hands and people useing products to demonstate.

Its pretty easy to end up closed off when you work at home and are too broke for going out. Thats why I am super thankful for internet!!

lol- yes that was for the ice cream. That's cool that you used to help your stepfather. my actual hasn't even called in 10 years, lol. As for the "easy to get closed off..." , same here. all I do is work and "sculpt" (for lack of a better term). That and the fact that no one in Austin seems to know how to have a good time for under $200 an evening. Screw that. clubs are overrated.

I'm sorry to hear that about your father. Mine's a pain in everyone's ass. Not cause we want it that way, but cause he does. Makes life... Interesting. eh. As for clubs, unless you really enjoy getting hit on by sleazy drunk guys and dealing with girls worse than what you'd find in a brothel, you aren't missing much, lol. That's just my opinion mind you. anytime I've had to be in a club for any reason, i always hated it. I'm either the guy dragging platoon and squad mates to the car cause they are drunk, or having to fend off over aggressive fools looking for problems. Plus I couldn't dance if my life depended on it, lol.

No problem. My step father is kinda a pain ,but Ive gotten used to him. He's the kind that annoys cause he's clueless not cause he means to.

No not really into that ,but I really liked the club scene in the matrix. The bars here are all bootscoot boogie:P I used to be a home drinker ,but it got old.

Always be thankful for the wonderful times that you have had with family, friends and loved ones, whether they be two-legged or four-legged or no-legged.
