The Center of Things

Well, I haven’t been using these daily posts nearly often enough to keep y’all posted on the goings-on around here. My bad.

This week is Thanksgiving here in the US, and we’re having a houseful again. My sister and her boyfriend (35 years old and this is the first one the whole family likes) will get here this evening while I’m at work, and my older younger brother will be here Wednesday. My youngest brother is, of course, incarcerated again. I honestly don’t remember the last Thanksgiving I had with him.

And then Thursday we’ll add my father-in-law, my brother-in-law and his plus-five, and our two friends who live next door, for a total of sixteen.


Here’s The Center of Things, sumi and iroshizuku ink on 9×12 watercolor paper.

    I’ve only held one T-giving, and it was just for four. I don’t know how you people do it.

      Amazon has 40 disposable aluminum baking pans for $8, we have two mini fridges, and we order a smoked turkey and ham so I only cook one bird.

    That sounds like a lot of hard work. So far my biggest Christmas where I was in sole charge of food was 12 and that was pretty intense.
