Happy Thanksgiving to my family, my friends, and all my readers. I hope you had the chance to spend the day with your loved ones, and enjoy good food and good company. I’m just home from spending the day with the puppy, and a watching most of Series 9 of Doctor Who.

It’s been a pretty typical week for me. Listened to a couple of Heinlein books – The Door into Summer and Citizen of the Galaxy. I’ve got another Butcher on the line, book three of the Codex Alera series. As well as, another credit from Audible to spend.

I am thankful for all that I have – for friends, for family, for my home, my job, my car. I am thankful that I can life the life I want. However, I know that I have to do more…

As we sit comfortably at home, horrible things have been happening in North Dakota – Water hoses in freezing temperatures, tear gas, and rubber bullets. Being used against unarmed Native Americans, trying to protect what little they have left, and the water that sustains them.

Merry Christmas to All! December 26, 2013

Had a really nice Christmas. Spent Christmas Eve morning at work, with very understanding folks who knew they were too late for what they wanted. Spent the rest of the day watching Star War, wrapping presents and snuggling the puppy. Christmas Day I spent the afternoon with Pete and family, including their new dog. We had a great time with new toys, games, puzzles and books. Then I spent the evening watching the end of Matt Smith’s term as Doctor Who. I have new (and old) movies to watch, new books to read, and new clothes to shop for. Thank you to those that sent cards, I filled up my “mantlepiece” this year. 🙂 Hope everyone else had a wonderful day as well.

Now, if I can just get rid of this cold, I’d be doing great. I think I’ve caught up on all the in-theater movies I want to see (unless Ender makes it to the dollar theater), so this weekend will involve more resting after work on Saturday. On another health note, if anyone has a three-bean chili recipe they’re particularly fond of, I’m in the market. Cold med-head has put Ancestry.com research on temporary hold, but I should get back to it next week.
