Happy Thanksgiving, friends!
In spite of this strange and often stressful year, I have many things to be thankful for.
I'm thankful for my family, especially my guys. I've probably shared this picture before - it was taken on a trip we took together to San Francisco a few years back.
Mike, Kevin, Andrew,
and me! (behind the camera)
I'm thankful that Mike's cancer treatments are progressing as expected with few side effects, and that my kids are employed in jobs they enjoy, and that we are able to be in touch in lots of ways.
I'm thankful for my comfortable little house and plenty of food to eat, including a turkey dinner. Yum!
I'm thankful for beautiful outdoor spaces to enjoy, not too far from my home - places to have a picnic lunch, go for a walk, watch birds, see what's going on beyond my neighborhood.
I'm so very thankful for good books to read! I'm reading the most recent book in the Inspector Gamache series by Louise Penny. It takes place in Paris, so I'm traveling by book!
I'm thankful for creative things to keep busy with - quilting, sewing, embroidery. Here's a view of my design wall this week - lots of this and that going on!
And I can't end my Thanksgiving post without saying how thankful I am for friends - both my local friends and all of you, my blogging friends - thanks for coming here to read my ramblings, for inspiring me with your creations, and for the friendship you've extended to me in so many ways.
Hope you're having a good day, however you're spending it! I'm joining in with LeeAnna and friends at Not Afraid of Color
for I Like Thursday.
