Extra Thankful

The first weekend of October was when Canada celebrated Thanksgiving this year.  We had a big shindig:  family, friends, turkey "and all the fixins" as they say.  We recounted our many blessings and gave thanks.  Being that we are saying goodbye to friends on their way back to England this week, and being that Hubby is an American Hero, in my eyes, we are doing it all again this week.

Hurray!  Turkey, stuffing, pie, chocolate, music and flowers.

As an early harbinger of the gala season, Christmas Cactus has bestowed upon us a profusion of blooms.  Another blessing.

 To all my American friends, Happy Holiday and may your gratitude be evident for all that is glorious in life.

ps.  The Alka Seltzer is in the bathroom cupboard.

How lovely to be celebrating Thanksgiving twice, Rosemary! Sounds like a good ploy to me. I really do wish that we had a Thanksgiving Day over here in England. Nevertheless, I am thankful for all my blessings each and every day.

Happy Thanksgiving. (Next post will be about the diet?)

Nothing better than a Turkey feast... except maybe extra peeps to help with clean up!

You can still have one more Thanksgiving dinner ( besides the one in October) Turkey is good for you,if eaten without too many trimmings. My husbands two brothers live in Canada and they will enjoy our Thanksgiving as well.

I think it's a shame that we do not celebrate thanksgiving in germany - i think it's such a great think to stop and think about all the good things god gave to us. Hope you had a good weekend! :)
