It’s Thanksgiving Day here in the states, and this is a holiday I particularly enjoy. I make a genuine effort to always keep the many things for which I’m thankful fresh in my mind, but sometimes the stresses of everyday life take their toll. These day-to-day problems can cause us to lose sight of what’s really important. For me Thanksgiving is a day for re-focusing on what’s most important in life: family, friends and health.

It’s interesting that while I’m thinking about how important my health is I’ll be eating lots of things that are, for the most part, decidedly unhealthy! Actually I think there’s nothing wrong with splurging every once in awhile. One of the things I enjoy most about Thanksgiving is the communal experience of cooking with my family. I’ll be roasting the turkey, making the stuffing and preparing the roasted garlic mashed potatoes; Lisa is making the cranberries and the biscuits; Lisa’s mom is cooking the sweet potato casserole, the green beens and desert; Lisa’s dad is making the gravy and will act as sou chef for the rest of us, lending a hand where needed. Gathered in the kitchen with my family, joking around and telling stories as we cook together really epitomizes this holiday for me. I only wish my mom and the rest of my family in Texas could be here with us today!

As for the new house, we hit a big milestone yesterday: the exterior of the house is now complete! Along with the hundreds of photos and videos in my new home construction journal (an upgraded forum membership is required), I’ve also been taking photos from the exact same spot to be used for a time-lapse animation of the exterior construction progress. Here’s the final animation. This animation covers the construction progress from July 25, 2007 through November 21, 2007 in about 60 seconds. There is still much more work to be done on the interior before our December 28, 2007 closing, however.
