Being thankful, a time to reflect....


Like many of us, I have much to be thankful for... a roof over my head on a chilly November morning.

A warm and cozy place under that roof....

A place to grow my own food...

With enough to share...

A place for the three meals a day that we don't go without...

Family, including a son that appreciates the past...

a daughter and her guy that don't live in the chilly spot far across the continent... in another country anymore, but are just a car ride away....

A husband that can fix or build anything...

including this eyesore, transformed inside and out...

Coke, in a glass, with ice... I'm just keeping it real here...

My new espresso maker that once again produces...

these daily at about 5:15 am...

For the memory of my flower gardens outside...

as well as this current bit of flowering, inside, for the holidays.

Thanksgiving is a good time to reflect on what last year brought us...
And perhaps a bit of dreaming of the year to come...

Happy Thanksgiving.  May yours be filled with family, friends, food and lots of new memories.
