Well, it finally happened. After a lifetime of waiting, the clean-up fairies finally arrived.
A LIFETIME OF WAITING!
We had our modified family party. It was awesome. The menu was simple and Jessie made the best spice cake ever made on this planet or any other. She used the prune cake recipe and added chopped apples. You just can't even know how good that cake was.
And after we ate cake, I kissed everyone good-bye and got in bed. Owen and Gibson were still here! They came and kissed me good-night.
And I read for a little while and turned out the light and I went to sleep. I was asleep by 9:45. I got up about two to pee and the house was all tidy and the dishes all done and I almost cried, it was such a miracle. The rain was still coming down then but now it's just gray as hell and getting cold. And I have all day to make pies and cranberry sauce and angel biscuit dough and I don't even know what all. The boys are coming out at one and it's going to be a full day but I'm happy and I'm rested. This will be the first Thanksgiving in forever and ever that I won't have to deal with a party the night before and as much as we all love that party, I am pretty sure I couldn't be happier.
So that's the news from Lloyd. Vergil's taken Greta out for a run, guys are working on the railroad and I have no idea what they're doing but it's noisy. It's cold and it's nasty-looking but inside it's warm and cozy and I'm just going to move slowly through this day.
I hope all is well with all of you. You are in my heart and some of you were in my dreams.
Much love...Ms. Moon
