Another Thursday…

Tomorrow’s the fourth Thursday in November (during what may the strangest year we’ve collectively survived together). I’ll be spending my Thursday with SJ. We’ll watch movies, maybe make some crafts, and eat Chinese food for dinner. Because we can, and because there’s no pressure to do anything more. Hope your day will be as free of stress as ours.
