Itâ€™s getting darker much earlier now which is throwing off my body clock. The dipping temperatures also mark the coming of winter. It was too chilly for my neighborhood walk this weekend. ☹ So youâ€™ll see more inside photos over the winter season, and possibly some retrospectives.
This week, Iâ€™m busy giving thanks for the people in my life. These cards wonâ€™t be written and sent until December, but I like the thought of showing appreciation for a year of helpfulness and collaboration, instead of just focusing on the annual Food Fest.
A little thank you goes a long way, and one can never over-appreciate a hardworking, caring, dedicated person. Itâ€™s actually been fun to think of synonyms with gratitude, and I didnâ€™t mind using an outmoded â€œbenevolenceâ€, and inserting character traits like â€œhelpfulnessâ€ and â€œcheerfulnessâ€ that to me are part of the appreciation of that person.
Iâ€™m very much looking forward to the Feast with the â€œRoast Beastâ€ surrounded by my family too. Itâ€™s an American tradition weâ€™ve gladly adopted, and we discover new dishes that go with this holiday every year.
Aside from the yummy food the best part is our circle of thanks, where we go around the dinner table saying what we are thankful for. I think it might take a while for me this year!
I wish you a lovely Thanksgiving holiday if you celebrate it, and even if you donâ€™t, why not send a token of appreciation to someone who has been especially meaningful to you this year?
Thank you for reading!
