Happy Thanksgiving

thanksgiving turkey 

T is for the trust the pilgrims had so many years ago
H is for the harvest the settlers learnt to grow
A is for America, the land in which we live
N is for nature and beauty which she gives
K is for kindness, gentle words, thoughtful deeds
S is for smiles, the sunshine everyone needs
G is for gratitude... our blessings big and small
I is for ideas, letting wisdom grow tall
V is for voices, singing, laughing, always caring
I is for Indians, who taught them about sharing
N is for neighbors, across the street, over the sea
G is for giving of myself to make a better me

Thanksgiving Eve


Today has been filled with getting things ready for our traditional family dinner.  Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday meal and I enjoy every minute  in the kitchen baking and cooking for my family.   The aromas of pies and breads baking in the oven….smells of cinnamon, nutmeg,  swirling around.  Candles flickering a soft sweet glow. Sipping cocoa or cider.

That is just one of my favorite traditions, spending the day  before Thanksgiving  in the kitchen, as well as watching a black and white Christmas movie while working away the hours. Today I’m watching “White Christmas”.

Tonight, when all my kids arrive it will be spent finishing up the last minute prep, and watching the classic “Charlie Brown Thanksgiving”.  A holiday favorite too.


Do you have any Thanksgiving Holiday Traditions?

Hope your having a blessed day!!!

I'm still here

Just wanted to let you all know that I am okay and I'm still here.

Since my last entry, we have SOLD OUR HOUSE!


Woohoo!  Doing a happy dance!!!!

Anyway, there is a ton of things to do, and with both holidays coming before settlement, I am a bit overwhelmed.  We settle on our house 27th of December, but hoping to be moved out the week before Christmas so that I can still put up a tree and have a holiday with my children. (We still haven’t found a place to move too, but have several leads)

Thanks to all who have emailed me about my absence, it means alot to know that I have been missed.  I am still around and will be back once things slow down a bit.

I hope all you dear friends have a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving.
