Your favorite butch blogger is thankful for many things.
Xena, Melissa, sneakers …
You know the list.
Heat, however, is not one of those things.
At the end of October, we discovered that our oil furnace was broken. We got a new furnace installed the day before Thanksgiving but are still waiting for the utility company to run a gas line to our house.
So, we’re living on space heaters. And flannel. I have never been more grateful for flannel.
We still had Thanksgiving at our house and hosted a party of 16. On that day, we were thankful for many things, including all of that body heat.
W’s birthday was on Saturday and we celebrated in true W fashion, wringing every possible ounce of joy out of the day. We started with an early breakfast and then walked around the Philadelphia zoo. We did a bit of shopping before catching Bohemian Rhapsody, which was better than I had anticipated. We capped off the day with dinner at an Italian restaurant, cake and presents.
I got W a bunch of things, including this sign that I had made.
W always thanks me for finding her. We met through Match.com, and I was the one who first reached out.
“I found you,” I always say. “I was driving along and there you were on the side of the road.” Or something silly like that.
What I never tell her is thank you for waiting for me.

Hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving! What are you feeling thankful for these days?
