More aquazumba today and aching bones again, but otherwise, things have been quiet around here. I have made the decorations for the advent candles - I must take a photo. Unlike yesterday. Remember I said I would be barring the door? Well. Five minutes after hitting the publish button for the post, the doorbell rang and in walked Peter - Glynis's husband for coffee and a chat, followed swiftly by another knock on the door, and a visit from Sue. And then, for good measure, one of my neighbours arrived this morning to ask for help emailing photos, and at that point, I gave up worrying about the chaos.
I know I have said in the past that I absolutely love people popping in and I really do. But yesterday was so out of control in terms of mess that it was a slight exception. Ah well, we can all have off days, can't we? I went to bed after 2am after a valiant attempt to Get Things Sorted.
America is preparing for Thanksgiving tomorrow, so I would really like to say Happy Thanksgiving to each of you and your families. I hope your day is warm and filled with the joy of knowing how blessed we all are. So very much to be thankful for. Have fun! (I rather fancy some pumpkin pie!)
Day 23: I am thankful for the friends who pop in and who totally ignore the chaos here. For finding old ornaments which make me stop and remember so much. For not letting the fact that the white candle bridge thingy with red painting on is MISSING irritate me too much.
