Happy Thanksgiving!


Happy Thanksgiving!
Happy Thanksgiving to all! We'll be staying home since we rarely travel for Thanksgiving, which is fine with me. I've never been a fan of traveling for the holidays since so many things can go wrong weather-wise. Our first snow came this morning, about a half an inch here in the valley, nothing like they're having to the East, with blizzards! We have had severe winds up to 55 miles an hour. More snow maybe later this week. Living in the Northwest I've seen it all from snow to very, very icy conditions. So we'll be home with family relaxing on Thanksgiving! Anya is ready for some turkey. I decided this year to take today off for a vacation day, so I can do food prep and kind of relax! Here's a peek of a few of the things that are around the little homestead for Thanksgiving-

My fave thrifted embroidered piece

Mama Pea blogger gifted me with her mini quilt!




On the table tomorrow will be a nice big roasted turkey and all the trimmings.  Our two married girls will be here with their families! I'm really grateful for so many things and that's why Thanksgiving is really my favorite holiday of the year. It's not about buying or giving stuff. It's about being grateful for what you have. And I am.

Lovely, lovely decorations for the day! I think you were still working in the elementary library when I sent you that little "pilgrim" wall hanging. Warms my heart to see you still using it. And you're right; Thanksgiving is for family and special friends to enjoy and be thankful for being together. Hugs to you!
