We had a good visit with my father over the Thanksgiving break, and spent the day with my sister’s family, with our celebratory meal a brunch. Start with eggs benedict, end with pecan pie—I recommend it. Along the way, we asked each other entertaining questions such as “What is your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?” My sister laughed, “We don’t have any!” Exactly. We are thankful when as many as possible of our widely scattered families can be together, and that we’re on good terms with those who are far away. We have homes, jobs, and more than enough to eat—and enough to share with those less fortunate. The details aren’t that important.
Now it’s the last week of University classes, then exams. I am far behind on grading, but fully expect to have everything done by the end of the week, and then…well…the finals.
