Thanksgiving


  
Maple Pumpkin - SOLD
 
Today is the official Thanksgiving holiday in Canada and I have lots to be thankful for in my life.  Family, health, a roof over my head, clothing to wear, food on the table and a stable country to live in.

I have lots of other things to be thankful for, but the basics are the most important to me.  Often, people seem to think that physical objects bring the happiness they need.  While lovely things do bring pleasure, the pleasure is fleeting and if everything but the basics were removed, life would still be good.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and treasure what you love most.

Thank you John. It's a lazy day for me. A little painting, a little eating, a little napping. Just as it should be! xo

Canadian Thanksgiving make me miss pie lol

Jeanette Jobson said...

Pumpkin pie is over rated. I made one and it was ok, but not that fabulous.

Jennifer Rose Phillip said...

never had it before lol but I love apple pie :)

Jo Castillo said...

Most people put too much/many cloves in pumpkin pie. Better without or VERY slight touch.

Agreed Jo. Cloves are very strong and while a lovely taste, moderation is really important or it becomes almost inedible.
