And dream of sheep

The cat is in a food coma. He sat in the kitchen, keeping watch over the 18-lb. turkey roasting in the oven. He was stepped on while I was trying to serve dinner. He certainly received his share of good things, and roused himself briefly to try for some pie. Now he's curled in sleep.

I, too, am ready for sleep, but not because I ate much. I never have much of an appetite when I've spent the day cooking. But watching the daughter launch herself into the leftovers a few moments ago makes it all worth it.

"Turkey sandwich!" she crowed triumphantly.

Wherever you are and whatever you did, I hope your day was good, too.

Go listen to some good music: "And Dream of Sheep" from the album Hounds of Love by Kate Bush.
