The most different Thanksgiving I’ve had since the Peace Corps. Not travelling. Not hosting. Spending time with friends for a casual vegetarian meal around 3:00. Anna and her dear friend are volunteering this afternoon at the United Campus Ministries Thanksgiving supper and we’ll join them to help with some volunteering around 5:00 or 5:30. Until then, I will go next door to our neighbors’ empty house, turn up their heat, snuggle into a corner of their sofa, and try get caught up on this darn November novel.
