So, what are you doing this Thanksgiving Day? (other than the whole turkey thing?) You’re giving thanks for all of the blessings in your life!
I’ll go first.
What am I thankful for? Family, friends, yadda yadda, but one of the things that strikes me when asked this question is this: I am thankful that I can step outside my front door at any time of the night or day, 24/7 and have my senses explode with the sights, sounds, and scents of nature and the farm. I can do that because of people, like my son, who are not home this holiday, but are, instead, voluntarily putting life and limb on the line over in a foreign country so that those of us at home don’t really have to think about the costs. Thank you to all of our servicemen and women. Thank you, thank you, thank you, and son, please come home safe and sound, SOON!
When I step into my outside world, I can smell the pine undertones in the fresh cold air. I can see the world, asleep under the blanket of the cold white stuff, and I can hear the critters munching contentedly in their pastures, the wind rustling through the trees, and usually, this time of year I can hear the snow and ice as it flurries around before hitting the ground.
But all of this seriousness aside, let’s remember to have some fun too. I won’t post individual links, just click on the pictures to go to the idea or pattern pages. We have everything from knitted turkey hats, turkey dishcloths, kntted turkeys, knitted turkeys knitting, and a whole spread complete with turkey and vegies.
