My cottage is hidden away behind our house and is the perfect spot for reading, writing, listening to music, gardening, dreaming, and just enjoying life.

A Reason to Give Thanks
Living life or writing about it? Reading for pleasure or working on my paying job? Volunteering in my historic neighborhood or chilling in my library? Taking care of the hundreds of details for upcoming Thanksgiving dinner and Christmas holidays or trying to enjoy all the fun activities that happen in my part of the world in the fall?
These are some of the quandries of my life right now, and probably many of yours as well. It's not that I don't want to write in my blog because I love writing my posts--it's just that I am pulled in so many different directions.
I'm thankful to have a rich, full life! In a minute I'm going to walk over to the park where our annual Highland Jazz and Blues Festival will be taking place--five and a half hours of music on two stages, food and craft vendors--a fun time as only Louisiana can do it. I'll hear some great music, visit with friends, supervise the festival information and t-shirt booth volunteers I lined up--and basically have a great day, hopefully forgetting about my "To Do" lists.
I'll get it all done--and what doesn't get done, probably won't have dire consequences. Soon I'll return to my blogging. Until then, have a wonderful Thanksgiving week.
