Aamir is making brisket and our neighborhood fox is staring down the smoker. It is pretty entertaining but also kinda frightening. I don't want him to hurt himself but I don't want to get hurt trying to explain to a fox that he shouldn't go near the smoker. I didn't sleep well last night and so I had Cheerios at 2:00am and I thought about what we would do over winter break. Zakaria wants to do the Meadowlark Winter Walk of Lights and retrace the steps Hadi and him took while there. I am so glad Zakaria ensures that we continue these traditions even though its tough to get over the initial thought that they will cause too much sadness. I can't believe it's almost 2019. Woah, I turn 40 next year. Again, I don't have a bucket list but I am going to put together a list of things I am grateful for and make sure they are part of 2019. Burnt ends, anyone?
