Giving thanks



After a beautiful two day drive across CA, AZ, & NM, I am now happily resuming my place in our little family and household. My job now is to get back to the business of simplifying my life in as many small ways as I can. The last two days have been spent facing down six months' worth of summer dust and cobwebs in my workspace...not to mention the piles of things I left, in a rather breezy manner, in May. I guess I forgot they'd still be here when I returned.

Sunshine this morning, and lots of it. We've had a few false alarms on snow this last few days. Dinner today will be at a lodge high up in the mountains (10,400 ft., to be exact). It has become somewhat of a tradition these last years and I must say I don't mind not spending all day in the kitchen to make a huge meal for a small household.

I have much more to be thankful for than I had ever dreamed. These photos are of some of my many blessings.

I hope that you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving today, wherever you are. May you have lots of good food, laughter, and the love of family and friends surround you.

Look at those precious grandbabies. It's so good to see our "long awaited for" baby!!!!

The mountains look so gorgeous at your home ---- look at that divine snowcapped area? And that deep blue sky ------- so very breathtaking.

Thanks for sharing, as always. It "all" just takes my breath.......

Thanks, Phyllis...I did my part to make sure I left a clean plate...I hope your day was a good one, also.

Ter'e: Yes, you can't beat the skies in NM for color. Hope you had a good day yesterday!

What a sweet photo of your precious babies! We do have so much to be so thankful for. One day I hope to visit NM. On my bucket list I guess. I have read how beautiful the colors of earth and sky are there. Magnificent photo!

Thanks, Jack. Hope you and yours had a grand day. Ours was quiet and contemplative, and the ski valley was beautiful. PS It was 2F when we left dinner at the Bavarian at 6:00 p.m. Brrrrr!!!!
