Happy Thanksgiving!

I know what springs to mind for me, of course: I’m deeply thankful to have finished a complete draft of Tasmakat. That’s so recent and such a big accomplishment that it’s definitely what leaps up waving an autumnal flag and saying:

After that, more important things come to mind.

I’m thankful my mother’s pretty well recovered from the fractured vertebra that was giving her so much trouble a couple months ago. That’s up at the top.

I’m thankful my knee is enough improved that I can take the dogs for a walk.

I’m thankful that Keya, my fourteen-year-old, is doing rather well and has started being able to run fast outdoors again, when for months she really couldn’t. I’m glad that the occasional breakthrough seizures aren’t worse. For a while there, I didn’t think she’d make it to fourteen — her birthday was this month — but so far she’s doing better than I hoped. Here’s a rather seasonal picture of Keya as a slim puppy, showing in the graduate puppy class thirteen years ago.

I hope your family and friends are well and that you all have a beautiful Thanksgiving weekend, whether or not you celebrate the holiday!

  1. Happy Thanksgiving!

    I’m thankful for so much, including this blog. Thank you, Rachel! You write about a variety of topics and you make it all engaging.

  2. My kid’s kidneys stabilized, and sometime in the next month I’m going to become an aunt – lots to celebrate :)

  3. Happy Thanksgiving! We had one of our best turkeys ever–spatchcocking makes such a big difference.

  4. I’ve never spatchcocked a turkey. Maybe someday. We had a perfectly fine turkey just doing it the ordinary way.

    SarahZ, I hope your kid continues to do well! And congratulations in advance for being an aunt!

    Mona, thank you! I’m definitely thankful for this blog, which is not just a source of almost all the new books that go on my TBR pile, but a pleasure for in several different ways.
