Happy Thanksgiving

Today, I am thankful for (in no particular order) a day off, starting the weekend with a fun night out with my father and brother, Doritos (Sweet Chili Heat and Dill Pickle) and fizzy Coke, a squirmy nephew, a wiggle-butt dog, a barn cat with a serious balance issue (and an affinity for belly scratches), two turkey dinners and all of the chefs who cooked them, my mother who works so hard to bring everyone together, my father-in-law and his chainsaw, my mother-in-law who takes the dog for a walk and shares pictures for my blog, my husband and helpmate (who supplies the Doritos and wields his own chainsaw), an outstanding harvest that’s more than enough to share (seriously, so many squash), this farm and my favourite tree out behind the barn.

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians.

  1. I’m thankful for my big family who came for dinner tonight. We had 5 kids, 4 boyfriends/girlfriends, one baby and the two of us, all squeezed into our little place! I’m thankful for my thirty students, our big lovable dog and two opinionated cats. I’m very thankful for Skype, which allows us to stay close to my oldest son, his wife and our two-year-old grandson while they are in Indonesia for six months.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! 🙂
