Happy Thanksgiving!

We're celebrating in non-traditional style here. The husband is off to a cottage to enjoy some peace and serenity and Very Traditional Plumbing. The boy went off to his dad's girlfriend's for turkey dinner. The big girl will have Thanksgiving Dinner with her aunt in the city in which she attends university. The younger (but still big) girl and I spent a couple of hours reading on the sun-filled porch, our chairs facing each other, feet resting in the other guy's chair. Then we went out for highly traditional nachos and salad. I am thankful for time and space and serenity. For children I love. For a wonderful man. Today we will lounge around, do a little housework, visit some friends, sit on the porch and watch the leaves fall. Which is exactly what I want to do. ~~~~~~~~~~~~ © 2006, Mary P

I have to admit I'm jealous of Emma. I miss one-on-one time with my Mum.

Nachos sound good to me.

One Thanksgiving when we were still living in San Francisco, I'd bought all the food and woke up on the Day too sick to cook.

We ordered in - Chinese. I cooked the following Sunday.

The leisure of reading is such a powerful image of comfort and blessing. Us Canadians are really lucky folks for the most part and the picture you paint of family and the aforementioned comfort swells my heart just a little more; after, an already swell thank-fest of my own,

Happy Thanksgiving.
