Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving a whole month ahead of our American friends. Our harvest seasons is a little earlier. So this weekend is a holiday weekend and the shop is dark. Instead of working it is a time to gather with extended family and have some fun, and eat some turkey. We had a great time.
We have so much to be thankful for at our house. Everyone is well and happy. We get to do exactly the kind of work we enjoy. And we live in a beautiful part of the world with few cares or worries. Life is indeed very good!
Today, as our house was filled to the brim with family of all ages it made me smile. We are especially blessed to have a house big enough to fit them all in comfortably. There were twenty sitting at the dinner table.
The day was warm and and sunny so I took the opportunity this afternoon to give the kids a ride in the newly finished rail truck. I'm sure our neighbours chuckled at the loud ringing of the bell and tooting of the whistle as we tootled up and down the track a few times. The young kids sure enjoyed it and it made the adults in our crowd smile too!
It was indeed a day to be thankful for - as is every day. Happy Thanksgiving to all from our house!
