This was what it looked like in our neighborhood a few Thanksgivings ago! No snow this year...and for that, I'm thankful. Actually the weather has been quite agreeable--for November in Minnesota. It still feels like late Fall. It does kind of make it hard to feel like Christmas is just a month away--but winter will be here soon enough!
I'm set to start cooking up a storm. As has been the case for many, many years, I'm cooking a huge Thanksgiving dinner for my kids and mother. There will too much food as always, but hooray for leftovers!
Then there will be a little shopping on Friday (no early morning escapades!) and lots of studio time the rest of the weekend.
A quick work update: We are still waiting for the Hennepin County board to take a vote on a resolution that would fund us at 90% for 3-6 months. They were scheduled to vote on it this past Tuesday, but didn't get to it. I am trying to stay faithful that all will be good and no jobs will be lost. It's still a little hard to relax.
But today, I am thankful for my job and that Southside continues to do good work. I am thankful for a hubby that is supportive and makes me laugh. I am thankful for two wonderful kids making their own way in life. I am thankful for my beautiful home and studio. And last but not least, I am thankful for all the wonderful friends that are a part of my life!
Have a blessed Thanksgiving!!!
