Thankful

“There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky…” (Percy Bysshe Shelley)

Thankful…. that’s how I feel at this time of year. Reflecting back on the joys of summer and now the anticipation of fall, looking ahead to the culmination of the year in our celebrations at Christmas. It’s that in between time, where we clear away the remnants of summer, pull the boat out of the water at the cottage, clear away the patio furniture, bring in the harvest in one way or another, and begin our September routines once again.  In the midst of autumn, we celebrate Thanksgiving and it is indeed a wonderful time to reflect and recognize how truly blessed we are.

A few of my favourite things around Thanksgiving… the food!

Fall decorations can be as easy as collecting leaves from outside. A few pumpkins and gourds always make your table look fabulous.

And besides the turkey and pumpkin pie, there are other treats to enjoy as well.
