It’s Thanksgiving and near the end of another year. How does this happen?! We’ve done another 300+ dates of a year and this brings us to another Happy Thanksgiving day 2022 greeting. This day at my house, if it’s spent at home, is pretty much “just another day” in many ways since I usually put in some work. I like being busy and having tasks so this isn’t a bother to me. Especially since I don’t thrive doing nothing or lounging (and yet, believe me, I still get in my share of TV watching).

The only thing that’s different is the intention to pause and remember to be grateful and also, of course, the fact that an all-the-trimmings meal is on the menu.


As Mr. Knightley would say, I’m not one for grand speeches, but each year, I hope I can reflect and feel gratitude for everything good, and sometimes even the challenging, in life. I’m grateful for new opportunities and trying to make goals; for this space and for anyone who supports it; long conversations and silly or traditional movies; lessons to learn even if the happy is rare; my mother; family and freedom.

On this Thanksgiving day, I hope you’re with who matters most. I’m hope you’re laughing and loving, and I hope you’re celebrating in whatever traditions matter most. On that note, I wish you a…

Happy Thanksgiving day 2022!

PS: What’s your favorite kind of pie?

    Happy Thanksgiving, Rissi! We’re having some family members over for supper, but the morning has been relaxing here — the work will start up after lunch, though :-) And then we’ll have a feast for supper!

      Apple is a CLASSIC! On Saturday I made a pecan pie bar so that was my sweet tooth treat for the holiday. :) Thanks for visiting, Kathy and I hope you enjoyed a great Thanksgiving.
