To my American friends

Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Here's hoping you are able to visit with family, have a great dinner, and get some great deals at the mall.

I'll probably be having cereal, working, and juggling basketball and soccer practices.

Just for fun here's a few things I'm thankful for.

1. That we have a garage to park our cars in.
2. That I only have to drive to work 3 days a week on icy roads.
3. Friday - because it will be a balmy -1C, instead of -38C

Stay warm.

I love the new background! Very pretty.

We're having Thanksgiving at home - just me, my husband, and our daughter. It will be nice and low-key, then on Friday, we're off to Kansas City for a weekend of fun!

Have a great rest of the week!

Great things to be thankful for and I will be eating extra turkey just for you!

Hi Patti - Thanks for stopping by. I'm going you now, as well. Love this blogging thing. So fun. Great to meet you.

Lola Sharp said...

Yes, your blog is looking lovely. :)

Man, it's too cold where you live. But it looks pretty.

Thanks for the Thanksgiving wishes. :)

The blog does look wonderful, Patti!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Take care!

Lydia Kang said...

Oh, brrrr. -1 sounds so awful right now!
The blog looks gorgeous!
And thanks for the well wishes.

Jessica Nelson said...

Those are good things to be thankful for. :-) Have a wonderful day tomorrow.

Gah! -1 is "balmy"? I'm glad I live in Oregon, even though there's a frosting of snow on the ground. Give me 30 degrees any day! Enjoy your garage and your non-commuting days. :)

Kasie West said...

I'm shivering just thinking about it. Thanks for the holiday wishes. Do you guys have a holiday where the main purpose is to become gluttonous pigs? :)

Thanks Patti! I has been unseasonably warm here mostly, but that shoe is about to drop I'm sure.

Also, I don't have a garage, so you have me beat there.

Heidi Willis said...

Well, after reading this I'm thankful it's not -38 where I live!!

Holly Ruggiero said...

Burrrrrr. Happy Thanksgiving.

C Ann Golden said...

Thank you! :-) Yikes, that is a little too cold for me even though I'm originally from near Quebec (northern New York).

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Yay! It's already a balmy -10 C. :D

I don't know about you, Patti, but after reading so many blog posts today about Thanksgiving dinner, I have a craving for turkey. ;)

Loving the new look. -38? And here was me thinking 4c was cold.

Aubrie said...

I wish so much I had a garage to park my cars in! I have to get snow off with a broom sometimes before work!

That is a wonderful thing to be thankful for. :)

Patti Lacy said...

This is one fine new layout.
Always love coming to this place.

May God bless you in HUGE ways this holiday season.

I like the American Thanksgiving because it's a great reminder for us Canadians to be thankful all over again.
