Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving.
I kind of slept in.
Went for a quick walk with the hounds.
Peeled and mashed many potatoes.
Drank delicious coffee.
Cleaned my closet. (Yep. Got a good start on the crazy Kelly Klepfer cleaning method.)
Watched Rob formulate kitchen plans and put them on paper. Then he pounded, sawed and completed a small "foundational" job that he'd been putting off and which is keeping him from completing the fun stuff.
Rode to a lovely home which I did not have to clean. To eat delicious food that I did not have to prepare. Enjoyed conversation with people I'm pretty darn fond of.
A very, very lovely day.
