Whatever you're doing today, the day before Thanksgiving...

If you're embarking on an 'over the river and through the woods' trek, I hope you'll have a great trip and a safe one, whatever your destination.
To put you in the mood : Read this Live Blog from today's NY Times about a family on their way to grandma's. I consider today the Officical Beginning of the Official Christmas Season (though I never get out my Christmas decorations until December 1st), because from here on in, everything seems to move in fast-forward mode. Of course it used to move even faster when my daughter was little and my parents were alive and I was still married and working practically seven days a week. But at my age, it moves as fast as it ought to, I suppose. I now have a granddaughter to fuss over on the holidays - this will be her first Christmas. Life marches on.
So, whatever you're doing today: working, cooking, traveling or taking it easy before 'the storm' hope it's a good one. Have a great Thanksgiving Day tomorrow.
