One of the things that I try to remember on Thursday is all the little things I'm thankful for on a daily basis.  Some of that is really easy - jobs, health, family, home.  The other thing I try to do is find joy in something - whether it's the stars on Macy's windows, the lights, knitting, sewing, or sometihng that just looks pretty. 

Tuesday I had an "ice day" off work.  Monday it snowed in Seattle.  If you live anywhere besides Seattle, you have no idea how the tiniest dusting of snow impacts this City.  We left work at 3:00 and it took almost 4 hours to get home.  I wish I was joking.  On Tuesday the main road through my City still hadn't been plowed, bridges were a mess and they closed the office for our safety. 

At one point during the day - I was doing dished, looking out the window and noticed how lovely the house behind us looked with the sun shining on its dusting of snow.  Isn't it a pretty little picture?


  1. Happy Thanksgiving Gaylen! Yes, that's a beautiful sight, but then I love snow! :)

  2. Lovely photo! I love a fresh coat of snow...

    Happy Thanksgiving, my friend. I definitely count you in my blessings!

  3. Happy Thanksgiving, Gaylen! Lovely photo, hope you stay safe on the mean streets of Seattle!

  4. I've always thought the first snow of the season is beautiful. I especially like the evergreens outlined in white.

    Happy Thanksgiving to your entire household. I give thanks that we met and became friends.

  5. Very pretty picture. :) I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
