Ready for a Break

I'm taking a break from my newsletter duties while waiting for the last bits of information to reach me. With any luck we should get it out early so people have something to peruse over the upcoming holidays.

I am so ready for a break. Generally, I time my vacations so that most of it can be taken toward the end of the year, but this year too many unforeseen incidents ate up a good hunk of my time off.

There were major expenses this year; like the ceiling, the air conditioner, the fence and of course my surgery. But all that's behind us. I am really looking forward to 2008. I turned the corner in my writing career earlier than I anticipated so I'm raring to see what I can accomplish for next year.

Thanksgiving is coming up in the US. Greg won't be here until very late on Thursday, so I offered to help one of my friends throw her Thanksgiving spread. She has more than a dozen people showing up so she can use an extra pair of hands. My friend is one of "those" people. It's like walking into a Martha Stewart dinner party.

I'm not that fussy when I entertain, but I marvel at people who can throw an elegant spread. It's like entering a fairy tale. My friend transforms her home into something you see in those fancy magazines and her dinner table would make Martha Stewart flush with pride. I may have to take a picture of her table just to prove it.

Anyway, I'll be the help for that night and feast with her family and friends. Greg's feast will come the next day after he's rested. This year we will do rib roast and asparagus and save the turkey for Christmas.

The best part though, is that I will be home with those I love. That's the perfect Thanksgiving.
