Belen, New Mexico .... settling in from 2 months on the road. Arrived home last Sunday, the 21st, and arrival can sometimes have its challenges. All is in order by today, Thanksgiving Eve, and all is well. Diane is in the house salt brining the two Diestel turkeys she will be contributing to our community dinner in ABQ tomorrow. You never salt brined a turkey? It is mucho delicious. My offering will be fresh green beans lightly steamed and smothered in garlic, lemon juice and olive oil, plus seasonings, yum.
Tonight Yu Garden, a local Chinese restaurant honored their customers with their annual turkey dinner (food they have learned to prepare since arriving here, and they have learned well). I overdid it. What a feast. Hope I have room for more tomorrow.
I love being on the road and love being home. I am grateful this season for giving thanks for the opportunity to be able to create the healthy life I enjoy, including many friends, my family, my oils, many interests that bring great pleasure.
I am still getting over the loss on my computer of pictures to share and have temporarily lost interest. But I have many, many others so will dig around for something appropriate and close with my heartfelt wishes for you to manifest your dreams. Am reading a magnificent book: "Of Monkeys and Dragons: Freedom from the Tyranny of Disease," by Michele Longo O'Donnell
Thought for Today:
"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest
appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."
