What are you thankful for?


The long weekend is officially over and I have thought quite a lot about the things I am thankful for.

I am thankful that I am getting along with all the members of my family and had a chance to really enjoy being all together on Friday night for my Moms 65th birthday. Happy Birthday Mom!!!

Saturday was a nice day with friends and some bittersweet moments that I can't really talk about right now. I had a chance to share some great musical moments with some of my favourite people on Saturday night and for that I am thankful.

Sunday brought some new people to my family unit, as we anxiously await the birth of my sister-in-laws baby, her in laws included us in their Thanksgiving dinner plans. Very nice people. This new baby that is coming will have a lot of people who care about him/her. I am so looking forward to our meeting.

Monday, today, such a lazy day. We spent the whole day just hanging out and I decided to do some cooking. I made a glazed ham, some scalloped potatoes, yams, salad and garlic bread. Way too much food and we barely made a dent in it. I wish I would have invited someone over to enjoy it but I wasn't feeling sociable and just wanted to putter and cook, try some new recipes and do a half assed job at cleaning up. After dinner S-man went out and rented Sex In The City, at my request. I told him I wanted to see it with him and see if he was still interested in getting married at the end. I enjoyed the movie the second time, I can so relate to so much of it. I know that sounds crazy and I don't mean the lifestyle or the crazy clothes but let's face it, I am the same age as the characters in in that movie and I feel like I grew up with them in some strange way. I cried a lot watching this time. I guess I am feeling a bit emotional these days, maybe it's that big fat moon.
I have so much to be thankful for and as I go through this week I will try to remember to feel gratitude.
I have some catching up to do here, I haven't written about my adventure on The Sunshine Coast yet. I will try to get caught up later today.
The sun is out this morning and I am back at boot camp. Wish me luck.

Yes, I hope you did well at Boot Camp and that looks like a lovely dinner you had. We had a dinner for two as well- it's actually kinda nice, just relaxing.
It's nice that you're family is getting along well - Happy Birthday Barbie mom ! She's so YOUNG!
