The Table

Thanksgiving is fast approaching, of course I'll have to celebrate it on a different day because we don't get the holiday off, but thanks will be given only a couple days later than traditional. I'm actually quite impressed at what we are able to rustle up for Thanksgiving dinner here. I think many packages were sent with fillings for pies and makings for casseroles, and because of this the all important Stove Top stuffing will make its appearance and be scarfed down, I'm sure. Thanksgiving is a really fabulous holiday though. Usually, as a family, we sit around the table and say what we are thankful for that year. It's pretty much like a movie... almost nauseatingly so. I think, since this is my first blogging Thanksgiving, I will give my thanks online this year at the chimerical internet table. We can all sit 'around' our computer screens and give thanks at our cyber table.

I'll go ahead and start. I am thankful for:

20 cm of snow that I saw falling and made a snowcaptain, snow angels, and much more snow mischief in last weekend.the amazing, loving friends that I have: in Bulgaria, in the States, in Mexico, and all over the world.

my family and the fact that I get to see them in about a month!

7 continents and new experiences on each one.

cabbage. There is so much you can do with it... and I'm finding out just how much.

my kitty Mila (sweetheart in Bulgarian), who is also finding out just how useful cabbage can be. (That is Mila sniffing the 3.5 kilo-> cabbage I bought at the market. The cabbage weighs about three times as much as she does.)

wonderful colleagues who make me banitsa and also make me laugh.

the internet.

copy machines.

nice sheets.

and last but not least... Peanut Butter.

So thank you for joining me at the table. Please share what you are thankful for too, if you feel so inclined. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Enjoy the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Dog Show, and Georgia-Georgia Tech football game for me. GO TECH!
