    I got to spend the day cooking with my lovely husband, his sweet brother, and my cousin I haven't known very well (but is starting to feel like maybe the best version of a sister). We did 25+ appetizers and dishes for us, my parents in law and 2 dear friends. Only 2 failed- the dressing and the apple cake. So we said to hell with it and threw the dressing away, and ate the apple cake with our fingers.

    Nobody got hurt, burned, pissed off, or argumentative. The weather was beautiful and the cat didn't jump on the table. They told me it was the best spinach dip I'd ever made, and we pulled off turkey, beer-can chicken, ham and mussels with all the accoutrements like people who'd been cooking together for years. All the things that might have happened to make it better just don't matter, and I might even decide to like the holiday season.

    Yes, tonight I am little miss mary sunshine, insufferably happy. I'll take it.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

    Anyone who scoffs at happiness needs to take their soul back to the factory and demand a better one. -driftglass
