Giving Thanks for the Little Things

Thanksgiving dinner has come and gone. The mashed potatoes were fantastic, and I even got some chocolate pie at the end. After a full day of crossword puzzles, Scrabble, and Iron Chef with Grandma and Grandpa, my family is back at our cabin on the lake (a five-minute hike from my grandparents' home in the woods). My brother and I are in the middle of watching Blood Simple, which might be the creepiest movie I've watched in 2010 if only because it involves too many Texans with too many guns.
