I was sick for the past week. So, our Thanksgiving was very quiet. I was supposed to make the stuffing for our family get together. Since we didn't get to attend, I decided to use all the ingredients I purchased for the stuffing. I made the stuffing on Saturday night. So Greg and I have been having stuffing and gravy with Costco's rotisserie chicken and ...loving it.
Yesterday when I felt better, I rummaged through our boxes and found the Christmas tree and decorations. I have a confession to make. For the past two years, I didn't set up our tree. We were in transition and living in a temporary place. It had been very hard on me as I loved our previous home. The photo above was taken there with the tree in front of the fireplace.
Well, I realized something. This same Christmas tree looks very lovely in our small condo. We may not have a fireplace and lots of room, but it's kind of cozy and warm.
I'm heading back to work tomorrow. I've missed those kids but it's been good to have a little break.
Keep counting those every day blessings ...
