Happy Canadian thanksgiving

Lynne had a couple of projects for us up at Limberlost, one of which was this holiday tag. As soon as I saw it, I knew I was going to present it to my mother, along with a plant, when we celebrated Thanksgiving. Mum loves Carmi’s handmade cards, so that’s what I usually give her. (Note to self: it’s obviously time to replenish my stock of Carmi cards!)
We got together last night to celebrate the holiday and I thought to myself: I’m going to spend Thanksgiving day being grateful for all the good that comes my way. A few things so far …John waking me up with a cup of tea and making breakfast for me later on; cuddling with Lily; opening my fridge and seeing all the delicious leftovers—ham vegetarian lasagna, pumpkin pie, lemon tart—that my mother had sent us home with.
Now I do want to go on record as offering to cook Thanksgiving dinner myself, but my mother insisted which is another thing to be thankful for. Oh, and I didn’t have to clean my house—that’s a big one!
