The outdoor temperatures have been just on the edge of chilly. The far edge. The edge that separates chilly from cold. So the past two days (and probably today as well) I've had a fire in the wood stove during the afternoons and evenings. They're the first fires I've had since our little cold spell in mid-October. And now, well, Thanksgiving is next week!
We will have plenty to be thankful for, once Ken gets home safe and sound. He leaves the US later today and arrives back in France early Tuesday morning. All flights (and trains) are running on schedule, but we fear that the lines at the immigration checkpoints have slowed down as security has been beefed up. That means that there's a possibility that Ken will miss his train out of the airport and will have to make other arrangements. We're in touch with one another, of course, and have worked out what to do, le cas échéant (just in case). Let's hope by Tuesday morning that they've increased the number of immigration agents at the airport and that things go relatively smoothly for Ken.
