Took the ham out of the freezer today as it is a favorite Thanksgiving meal. I have some things to be thankful for this year like the sound of the lawn mower as my teen is mowing the grass. I got some house repairs done this year and of course my surgery. High speed is a added bonus which gets me  here to my friends that have become a big part of my life. I have lived most of this year now bowel pain free. Got on a shopping trip that was something I wanted to do for a long time.Enjoyed my little feather friends and summer's bouquet. Enjoyed many smiles and laughs here on HW. So what have others here accomplished this year. lol gail

I wanted to wish everyone, north and south of the border, a wonderful autumn weekend filled with gratitude for our many blessings.

It is a good time for me to take pause and remember the true blessings in my life... love, family, friendship, good health, the ability to hope and dream and make good choices in my life. These are the important things, these blessings don't cost a dime, these are the blessings that make my life worth living.

Happy Thanksgiving. I had forgotten about the Canadian Thanksgiving being this weekend. We live in New England, but 3 of my Grandparents were born in Canada and we used to go to Canada for Thanksgiving all the time!!! My Aunt used to make the BEST turkey, which was really funny because she was a horrible cook in general. She put the turkey in the oven in the middle of the night at some really low temp and we would wake up to the smell of turkey and would have to wait all day!!!

Such memories!!!

Have a wonderful holiday!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all in Canada! You guys are lucky, I'm so ready for some turkey, cornbread stuffing, and pumpkin pie. It will kill me, and I'll likely spend an hour in the bathroom, but it's all well worth it! :)

Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends. I bet my sister & brother will have a good time.
My sister lives in Calgary & my brother near Edmonton. I sometimes wish that I had made the move to beautiful Canada than here,
but I think the long winters would get me down. Even living in the mid west, I'm always ready for spring LOL.

Pb4, I think my most favorite place in the world is Clarmont, I think that's how it's spelled. It's just through the foothills going west, heading to Banff.
When I first visited there, it was small and wonderful, with a 360 degree of views of the mountains. I've been back a couple of times
and ye gods how it's grown, and very exspensive, but still truly beautiful!!!

Yep, that's the one. Man my brain don't function so good some times.

I did look in a real estates window while I was there, my sister had to pick me up off the floor. I guess beauty does have a price....
Darn, just when I was ready to move too!!!

My husband is a master welder, and they keep telling us how much he could earn. It has been tempting!!!

Ah, it's too cold up there anyways...BC is a beautiful province right next door to alberta and BC warmer, they don't get snow or cold like in alberta or every other province in Canada, but it's also very expensive to live there.
