Happy Thanksgiving! I am really surprised but I wrote 564 words today. If five weeks ago, you would have told me that I would work on my book on Thanksgiving, I would have thought you were crazy.
So far, the day has gone really well. I watched the Thanksgiving Day Parade. I enjoyed it. Don’t judge me. Then, Aaron and I went for a long, almost four-mile walk. It was so nice to get outside, and it wasn’t cold.
When we got home, I set down to work. After I post this, I am going to start cooking. As those of you who read this blog regularly know, I cancelled Thanksgiving. I told my family not to come. They will all be here next week, after both November and NaNoWriMo are done.
Because it is just my husband and I for dinner, I don’t have that much to do. I want to acknowledge that for native people, today is not a day of celebration but a day of mourning, of unbelievable pain and loss.
Although I can’t’ single handedly repair what was done to Native Americans, I did decide to cook a meal that pays some homage to native people. We are having succotash, planked salmon, and corn bread. Dessert is a fruit salad.
I hope everyone has a great day.
