30 Days of Thankfulness – 11/15/17

I’m trying to post gratitude every day.

This is kind of a backhanded Thankfulness and a first world problem, but we came home from Portland yesterday and I found my computer wouldn’t talk to my screens. I guess I’m thankful that I have a computer and two screens, but not being able to reach the screens means I can’t do anything I need to. So I’m suffering a bit of frustration. (if you think my last two posts looked a little odd, it’s because I’m working on my iPad instead of my desktop and I’m having a hard time getting to my media.)

30 Days of Thankfulness – 11/23/17

For the month of November, I’m going to try to include gratitude in all my posts (and post every day.)

Today I’m thankful for the gauchos and chefs at Fogo do Chao who will be feeding Big Al and me our Thanksgiving Dinner. No cooking for me this year. I’m not upset about it because there’s no family around to cook for. (But I DID make cranberry salad to have when we get home.)

 

 

 

 

 

30 Days of Thankfulness – 11/21/17

For the month of November, I’m going to try to include gratitude in all my posts (and post every day.)

Today I’m making raw cranberry salad, even though we won’t be here for Thanksgiving Day. This is a recipe that tastes like my grandmother, and mother, and all the years in the past. I’m so thankful for my memories.

If you want the recipe, go here.

 

 

30 Days of Thankfulness – 11/20/17

For the month of November, I’m going to try to include gratitude in all my posts (and post every day.)

Today I was reminded of Mama’s funeral (thanks, Facebook) 20 years ago. I’m so thankful that I had my parents as long as I did. They were wonderful people, and I hope I did as well raising my boys as they did raising the four of us.
