Blogging about Thanksgiving can be a bit hard. I’ve written posts about being thankful. I’ve written posts about why Canadians celebrate in October rather than November–we want to avoid turkey induced comas two months in a row. I am sure every year I remarked on the family get together and the grouchy fights that ensue but are soon forgotten.
So where does that leave us?
Well, I am still thankful. My life is pretty good these days. A summer of bike riding has left me a bit fitter–though discovery of green tea kitkats has done some a bit to nullify that. I’m in a relationship and those family fights round the turkey carcass didn’t seem to damage that. In fact a slightly wind chilled hike didn’t even manage to rip that apart–though family Christmas and desperate New Years plans have yet to play their cards.
I am thankful for work, despite looming Union action and what may prove to be contentious negotiations. The damage is done and I doubt things will ever be the same.
I am thankful for this blog. It continues to be something I am passionate about. I still like putting words on these digital pages and see no signs of it stopping. I hope it is improving both my writing and my sense of humour.
The turkey was good and the fall colours were awesome. What more should I say.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
