Had a lovely Thanksgiving evening out at the lake with the whole family, including my mom and grandma. We played spoons, ate pumpkin pie, and Nity & I went kayaking this morning. She likes to just go out to the middle of the lake and float, which coincidentally enough, I also love to do. So we just hung out there and had very Zen mom/daughter time on the water.
It was good to have some Zen onboard, because we then headed down to Westlake Center for the lighting of the Macy’s Star. I had forgotten how much I dislike crowds…and pointlessly long extravaganza shows…and well, we had a good time anyway. Our friend Katy was singing with the Seattle Women’s Chorus and they were great.
It’s a decent start to another holiday season – not my favorite time of year, but one I generally manage to survive.
