I am in bed, writing with one finger on my phone. You know it’s important when I struggle through fat-finger syndrome! lol
I took this photo two days ago, nearing sunset. Isn’t it gorgeous?
Oh, and I feel like crap-on-a-stick.
And… yes, watching closely because Covid. While I was a sweaty mess in bed last night while NOT sleeping, I have no hint of a temperature today. Breathing not great but it never is, this time of year. I have allergies and asthma, you know. I’m being careful, I promise!
Today is Thanksgiving in Canada, which is way more fun to celebrate than Columbus Day, especially since finding out what a colossal jerk Columbus was. But I digress.
Hubby gets his faves today and I get mine on US Thanksgiving and ne’er the ‘twain shall meet, since he dislikes mashed potatoes & gravy, sweet potatoes, stuffing, … the man is clearly from Mars.
I don’t mind two days to celebrate thankfulness! Nor do I mind the food, which is a very bad thing. We went to a pie fest the other day and let’s just say that this morning, I was two pounds heavier. And the two slices of pie I bought -pecan! – are gone. I didn’t even buy a whole pie! Gah! So frustrating (and yummy!).
As to what I’m thankful for…
My family, including the best husband in the world and two cats, one a care-taker, the other a miscreant, as my husband says (and I agree! She’s into EVERYTHING!).
I am thankful for my health, such as it is at the moment.
I’m thankful for my Ruby, our lovely little home, my library, enough food for body-fuel, and legs to take me on walks.
I am incredibly blessed and thankful for this beautiful country and region that always holds surprises around the next corner, if only you’ll get out of the car and look!
I am thankful for my life. There have been moments it didn’t hold the same appeal and I’m thankful I was able to rise above with the help of some friends, family and professionals.
I am thankful for YOU, my readers. This space, as you know, will be my legacy. Thank you for keeping it vibrant, and beloved.
Here we go into the fall, a time to let go, get ready to hibernate, and find new ways to self-care. Looking forward to hot baths, candlelight, pumpkin-everything and more-than-a-little MAGIC!
