Photo of the Day #2258

Mom lives so nearby, and I see her so rarely. We at least had Thanksgiving together tonight, hosted at my place for the first time. Michaela came by early in the day, taking on the greatest share of the burden of cooking; Mom and Joe came by later on, each offering a few dishes of their own. I helped a bit here and there, but less than I expected to as host, since everyone else had so many things they wanted to throw in.

We talked about the kinds of things we often do – chemistry and little scientific curiosities, our place in life right now, nonsense about Santa Claus. We watched a movie that, though good, was very much not a family movie, and at the end of the evening we parceled out the bountiful leftovers. Now that everyone’s left, I find that I could have asked them so many more things. So it goes.

Christmas will be with Laurel’s family if things go right, so I will need more than a holiday to see my family again soon.

the magic’s right
