I am stalling a little on getting any cooking started yet. Relaxing some, & also trying to give myself a pep talk into taking a morning jog. We'll see about that one! But it's not like I will be spending hours in the kitchen, since we are going to my aunt & uncles today, & just bringing a few dishes with us to share.
Last night we added some leaves to our little painted Manzanita tree, & shared what we were thankful about this year. I am thankful for so many big things in life, like the experiences I've had...the good & even the bad, because I know I am learning from it all. Thankful for this family I have been allowed to have, & for friendships. Thankful for all the little things, & the things I take for granted, day in & day out, but are really gifts.
