Mellow Mosaic Monday


It's Thanksgiving Monday. Rainy outside. Very mellow around here today. 

Yesterday we were with our children - some in person, others virtually. For a few minutes while we ate dinner we had Ashley and Owen on Skype, sitting on the high chair since grandbaby girl was napping. The hour was late for them but we were happy to see them. 

They are doing well. They looked up an English-speaking church on line, went yesterday, and met a lot of friendly people. In fact, they had a fellow Canadian and her friend over for a quasi-Thanksgiving dinner of roast chicken and stuffing, minus the cranberry sauce. 

A walk in the sunshine, scuffling through crisp brown leaves, good food and even better company - simple things for which I'm continually thankful.

Joining in with Mary at the Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.

It's truly the simple things in life that make it grand, isn't it? Beautiful post.

Sounds like a relaxing sort of easy kind of day. What a cutie pie your little grand is. How fun that your daughter away was able to share Thanksgiving with a fellow Canadian. (Her hubby, too, of course.) So like God to link people.

It is much more colorful up your way than in Kentucky. Ours will come soon. Have so enjoyed reading about Canada's Thanksgiving days. Happy holidays to you and your family.

Adria is such a precious little pumpkin. Love her cheeks! And the trail looks like a wonderfully peaceful place for a wander. Happy Thanksgiving, cousin.

What a little sweetie Adria is!
It's cool and rainy down here, so we stayed in, baking and cooking and have had a lovely Thanksgiving chicken dinner.
