|In Maui its not unusual for clouds to suddenly roll in along the mountains.|

In later years, three of four of our grown kids and their families (living in the area) often spent the holidays at the "other side" or had begun to develop their own traditions and Tom and I were alone, a not uncommon scenario for families of divorce and multiple and varying family lifestyles.

Today, not unlike this third Thanksgiving in a row, I awoke this morning, hurriedly showered and dressed and turned on the hot water for my tea. There's no food to cook when yesterday I roasted two chickens and vegetables that we'll happily reheat tonight, adding a salad and fresh cooked green beans, prepared in a matter of minutes, not hours.

|Kiosks appeared every few hundred feet offering various ocean activities.|

|Whether its the ocean or the mountains, Maui is breathtaking in every direction.|

Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate today. And, happy day to all.
