Thanksgiving 2016 is really shaping up to be a hot ticket.
I’m flying to Iowa tomorrow morning. My sister Hannah and her fella are coming in from New York City at almost the same time. Rebecca’s already there and Jack arrives tomorrow night. Mom and Mark are ready with cars and grocery lists and sweet little Scrabble, Mom’s Mini-Golden Doodle, will be there to jump up on everyone and get treats. (The latter two things are not related but Scrabble will think they are; ergo, more jumping.)
On Thanksgiving Day, we’ll all be volunteering at the Methodist Church to take Thanksgiving dinners to folks who can’t get out of the house and to serve up a delicious meal at the church for anyone else who needs one. This has become something of a Fons family tradition and I’m thrilled to be able to be there for it this year.
Coming up on PaperGirl during the break:
- Pictures and stories from the Iowa Theater Renovation!
- An interview with A Mysterious Guest.
- Receiving Room Guy Update #6 (is that the number we’re up to?)
- A recipe to die for.
- POSSIBLY A SURVEY
Whatever you’re doing, wherever you’re going — and even if you’re not doing much and going no place — I wish you all an early Happy Thanksgiving.
Anyone who donates to PaperGirl gets a handwritten thank-you note (I’m doing a batch this weekend), so if you’ve donated recently, you have evidence in hand of how grateful I am for you. For those who haven’t gotten any mail from me, well, I’d love to send you some. But donation or not, the sentiment remains the same: I write this blog because it brings me the pleasure of connecting with you. Sure, I practice writing, sure, I can talk about what I’m up to. But if that’s all it was, it would’ve gone away a long time ago, don’t you think?
I’m thankful for you! Gobble, gobble.
