Happy Thanksgivukkah!

I hope you had a lovely day yesterday, whether you are celebrating Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, both, or nothing at all.

We are not particularly religious, but our good friends are Jewish, so we celebrated both holidays with them last night, with lots of turkey, stuffing, pie and other traditional Thanksgiving fare, along with lighting of the Menorahs at sunset, and gelt and presents for the kids. 

Other than my having a stomach ache all day and not really being able to eat comfortably (I ate as much as I could anyway), we had a great time.   I am so thankful for my friends, and spent yesterday considering how rich they make my life.  

These friends are vanilla, and people often ask how does a Master/slave couple behave at vanilla occasions.  I suppose if someone has only porn and imagination to rely on, it must seem like we'd look totally out of place.  But for anyone that has been in a power exchange relationship as a part of full time life, it becomes obvious that the way we behave is totally natural and unexceptional.   

 He tells me what time we go, and what time we leave.   I asked him for approval on the outfit I was planning to wear. 

He gets his own plate of food (buffet style dinner) because he prefers to chose the dishes and amounts himself.  Master poured the wine we had brought for everyone at the table also.   No real reason, he just did it. 

I served him coffee, and put sugar in it for him.  When he got up to help clear things I offered to take them for him.   He smiled at me and said to our host "I like this method of clearing things", as I took them away.  

I'm grateful for having the world's best Master, and for how close we are, for the love and the memories, and the fantastic sex we share.

I'm thankful for my children, and their good health, for my parents and their endless love and support.  

 I'm also thankful to my blog readers, who make me feel like I'm not writing into a vacuum here, or to myself, but actually writing to friends out there who are supportive of, and interested in, my journeys. 

Wishing you and yours the best on this day of mad shopping craziness!

Speaking of which, we don't do the whole Black Friday thing.  I'm not into shopping with crowds, and he's basically forbidden the purchase of anything that is not an emergency today.
