Thanksgiving is technically tomorrow, but I’m working so it won’t really feel like a holiday. It’s been a lovely fall weekend around these parts though, and I’m grateful for the downtime to recharge my batteries (both figurative and literal). Our Thanksgiving dinner will be a potluck feast tomorrow evening, and I will be making cookies tonight to bring in addition to my usual contributions of mashed potatoes, roasted garlic and canned cranberry sauce (which I love). And Diet Coke, but I’m not sharing that.
2011 is going by in a blur. It’s hard to believe we’re already in October – but it DOES mean that this time next week I’ll be in friggin’ London England with Heather and Renee. I started packing on Friday, and have only repacked once so far. I am awfully excited about our adventure – only 6 more sleeps!
In honour of tomorrow’s Thanking Day, here are the things I am thankful for:
- My home and everyone it contains
- True friends
- Being employed in a job that does not suck
- Living in Canada
- Having the opportunities I have
- This Diet Coke I’m drinking
It is good to be.
