knitting again, a few trips to the library, the boys came home, Thanksgiving dinner all together, some musical accompaniment, morning coffee and conversation (much catching up to do), and our first significant snowfall.

November

with gratitude

simple gifts

the last few years have been a lesson in gratitude
for the simple things
I no longer get frazzled over the holidays
if I forget the cranberry sauce, it’s no biggie
since my family is now scattered across the US
I am thankful just to be at the dining room table
all together this Thanksgiving.

I am also so thankful for all of YOU
for your visits and for your support
and for your wonderful, inspiring work.

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate
and I wish everyone a wonderful week!

we seem to have gone right from summer to fall weather over the weekend
although the sun was warm, the air was fresh and crisp
perfect for apple picking
and warm apple cider donuts
