Another Thanksgiving...
And this one not nearly as "Martha Stewart" as I usually attempt.
Too much on the ol' table this year... literally and figuratively.
My husband has been very sick for many months.
One of the things I am most thankful for is that although his ailment
was serious, the surgery was not. He is on the mend, but still in a lot of pain.
So... we're doing "low key" this year.
Or, at least as "low key" as you can get with 6 kids,
a grandbaby, a nephew, two girlfriends, a boyfriend, a dog, and a bunny.
Who am I kidding?
There's no such thing as a low key dinner here any day of the year!
I look forward to the noise, the scents, the hugs, the laughter.
And then my FAVORITE day of the year!!!
Everyone else calls it Black Friday.
We call it...
"Cuddle Day"
We all stay in our pj's
Watch our favorite Christmas/Old movies.
Eat magnificent left overs.
And, of course, cuddle.

But before "Cuddle Day" is Thanksgiving.
And I have thought of what I am most thankful for this year...
The internet. Without it, I could not do what I do,
and be a stay at home mom (and grandmom).
Holidays that make us stop and gather.
Art. Truly... without it, the earth would only be eh.
New England. I am in awe of the beauty in every season.
Kisses. And 30 years of the best of them.
Faith & Family & Friends.
U.S. service members who are away from their families keeping mine safe.
Laughter. It really is the best medicine.
"Happy Thanksgiving" Dear Friends!!!
I am ever thankful for you ALL
