Thanksgiving

I’m at my mom’s in PA. We picked up my sister Emily yesterday — she’s here from Texas for work-related leadership training. You can bet I already grilled her on the training and instructional design approach.

We had a lot of fun talking about the group interactions, and the “work style” personality quiz that the training was centered on. Emily is a “winner” and super-driven, and she thinks I’m a “process person.” Processes scare me (at least, creating them, because perfectionism) but she added that a trait of this group is “learning for the joy of learning,” and that’s very much me. Once I’m in a process, I love it. Don’t interrupt me.

But enough about work. I’m writing a quick post from my phone to say that we’re about to cook a vegan Thanksgiving and I’m very excited for it. Emily is a great cook, my mom is a great cleaner-upper, and I float in the middle (or…I blog while all this is going on, ha).

I’ll edit this post later to add some photos or our feast! Or post a part 2. Again…no process for blogging. A process here feels constricting for now. Wild “whenever I remember,” “don’t even copy edit this” blogging is where my heart currently is. But who knows, that process will probably evolve.

Celebrate a late “giving of thanks” with me in the comments. It doesn’t need to be tied to a genocide holiday.

What are you thankful for? Big or small or in-between, I’d love to hear from you.

  1. For years like this, and days like today. Without implying that it’s been a stellar, struggle-free, year; or a perfect day. Quite the journey, instead. Thank you. 🙂
