Things I'm thankful for today.

We're home.
My parents have been laid to rest.
A lovely, long walk along the Athabasca River yesterday in Jasper.
I not only saw Angel Glacier at Mount Edith Cavell yesterday, I also saw a piece of the glacier fall.
Hiking in the mountains.
Homemade supper - portobello mushrooms, spinach, garlic and chicken in a cream and white wine sauce, served with pasta.
Time spent with my middle daughter, my son and his girlfriend.
Taking photos with the big guy.
Love.

What are you thankful for today?

My sisters found my old blog, so I took it down.  To be honest, I didn't want them trolling through my life.  It's not like they've ever been interested before.

Things I'm thankful for today.

A glass of wine after work.
A holiday come Saturday.
Being ok with my mum's death, finally.  I've mostly stopped crying when I think about her.  Now I can remember good times.
My middle daughter is back in Canada, safe and sound.
I didn't respond in anger to some very angry emails from relatives.
A very good book, "The Mouse Proof Kitchen" by Saira Shah.
Warm weather.
And air conditioning.

What are you thankful for today?
