Thanksgiving in Seattle

This year, for the first time, we were not with family for Thanksgiving. Instead, we stayed here in Seattle and helped host a feast for other scragglers without family. It turned into a roaring group of ten people, with two little ones, and a nice pile of food. We had two "Thanksgiving Virgins" at the event who had never been to a Thanksgiving dinner (one from Japan, the other from Brazil). I think they were quite impressed. We are now exhausted and over-full as usual. Today CNN posted an article about why we are so tired after Thanksgiving dinner - it's not the tryptophan, it's because it's a Big Event - with all the drinking and eating and visiting, no wonder a person gets so tired!

My Dad, who is getting tired of reading about my TV and shopping interests, has posted a series of questions to ponder - I will answer them sometime this weekend but I am too tired tonight. He, like me, wonders about how blogging affects one's life and what sort of things motivate a blogger. Hrm, I'm not sure. We'll see what sort of answers surface. I invite you, my dear readers, to take a look and post some answers of your own to any or all of the questions on blogging.
