Being Thankful

 Another Thanksgiving has come and gone, and it was superb. I have so much to be thankful for: family, friends, and good health, among many other blessings. I celebrated with as much zest as I could muster, creating memories to be treasured. Enjoying grandson time, I played both freeze tag and indoor soccer without breaking any bones, always a positive. The day was actually pretty close to perfect.

Jane brought out the fine china and crystal as we feasted on turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, yams, green salad, and a scrumptiously juicy apple pie for dessert.

As I drove back to Sonoma County the next day,  Mother Nature provided a display of magnificent reds,oranges and yellows... and again at Dillon Beach on Saturday as she painting the evening sky with her expert brush. Breathtaking!

Almost as glorious as the sunset were the steaks we barbecued for yet another delectable meal. I'm not stepping on the scale for a few days!

 Now, back home, I am enjoying the quiet yet savoring the recollections of this Thanksgiving. Yes, another good one...


  1. It sounds like a lovely Thanksgiving. And, surviving grandson games is always an occasion for Thanksgiving in my book. ;-)

  2. That's it Next year I'm going to do it. All American, Thanksgiving mash up. . I don't care if it's 35 degrees and I have to sweat over a hot oven
