As Thanksgiving Day is turning into night (and Black Friday) here in Alaska, I finally had time to sit down, and wish you, Dear Readers, Happy Thanksgiving. I hope your day has been full of happiness and wonderful moments – just like ours.
Our Thanksgiving Day was spent by hanging out together and cooking. Nice and relaxing. Great times. Even though I didn’t have time to finish, or even start, a new table runner and placemats. I so wanted to be crafty and creative for this weekend but
once again the school and work got the best out of me. There are days when I wish I had more hours in my day, and that I could be a creative, wonderful miniature-Martha-Stewart who always decorates home for the season, cooks and bakes the delicious creations in the kitchen. But no, I can’t do that. Not until I find out a way to stretch 24 hours at least to 36…
However, our Thanksgiving was perfect despite not having the new tablecloths. The menu included roasted turkey with homemade stuffing from the scratch, carrot casserole, green beans, corn, homemade dinner rolls, cranberry chutney, mashed potatoes, turkey gravy, salad (for me), and pumpkin pie with homemade crust. It was plenty of delicious food. Actually we didn’t even make it to the pumpkin pie yet but it has to wait till tomorrow. Our dog, Tassu, got his share of delicacies too, and apparently it is good to sleep with a full belly. After dinner he parked himself on the couch, closed his eyes and hasn’t moved a whole lot. Gotta love the dog life!
That being said, this Thanksgiving I am terribly thankful for having the best husband in the world – he is my best friend, and perfect partner in crime. My better half. He makes me who I am. I am forever thankful for his endless support and encouragement. Furthermore, I am thankful for living this wonderful life of mine, and ours. Even though there are days when I am tired or frustrated, I wouldn’t change a single day. We truly are lucky and blessed. I am thankful for lovely, supportive people around us – friends and families, near and far. If we only could see them more often…
A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues.
