As it is just the two of us (and Maggie, of course), our holidays are typically low-key. That does not mean, however, that we don’t do ‘em up right.
I found this bouquet at the market yesterday when doing last-minute shopping.
There are no crews here today and that means no alarm clock. Even without that, we were still up by 7:00 AM. The turkey breast was in the oven not long after that, and Dave set off on a bike ride around eleven o’clock. My day was spent in the kitchen preparing our holiday dinner. I did get in my walk while things were in the oven, and Maggie joined me for part of that.
This year I have so much for which to be thankful. My continued life on this Earth and sharing it with the love of my life and wee Maggie; our home; our lifestyle; our work; my blood family and extended family . . . being physically able to prepare a meal such as the above and being able to partake of it and having the finances to buy the food for such a dinner.
The list goes on and on.
We take this day to share with others what we are grateful for in our lives.
Shouldn’t every day be a day of thanksgiving?
Perhaps not voicing it in our blogs, Facebook or Twitter, but in our own hearts and minds?
I hope you and yours have had a safe and wonderful day filled with love, laughter, the making of sweet memories and, of course, good food!
Thanks for stopping by!
I am a Warrior.
