giving thanks in canada

happy thanksgiving to US friends and readers!

imo, any day is a perfect day to reflect on that for which we are thankful [thank you, fran, for that sentence structure example!]. rather than list the usual/general life thankfulnesses (family, friends, home, cereal, etc), here is a list of specific, small, good things from today that i might overlook on another day:

today, i was thankful for…

~ the beautiful weather -> forget september, it felt like april or even early may out there! i appreciated the sunshine and very pleasant/comfortable temp.

~ setting a date and time with debbie for our annual westmount xmas light-viewing walk-about. i appreciate longstanding friendships and traditions!

~ a new-for-me sales experience at theOTHERstore -> it was a good, good bingo (as we used to say in aruba) and a performance perk, shall we say, will be coming my way!

~ hearing the song beauty& a beat by justin bieber, featuring nicki minaj on my drive home. i appreciated the opp to sing along in the rav and be a little silly. [yes, i am embarrassed to like a jb song, you don’t even have to ask].

~ chatting with my neighbour, m, and seeing the holiday edition 2012 barbies that she had purchased for her grand-daughters. the little girls will be thrilled! i appreciate the many kind and friendly people in my building.

~ carbonated water being on sale at food basics for $0.79 per bottle. take that, $1 walmart water!!

i got to put new outfits on the mannequins, today! i love that job…and this slogan is a great life motto (it needn’t apply only to running!)

big or little, i hope your day had its fair share of good things!

      stacie, i liked how we were both thinking along the same lines with our thanksgiving philosophy, yesterday! enjoy your day!

    That IS a great motto on the shirt. When I worked in retail, my favorite thing was “dressing the dummies!!” Good things for which to be thankful, Cath!!

    Laughed out loud at the cereal reference in your first paragraph. Any new cereals that I need to try? I tried Vector on your recommendation, and it’s JP’s all-time favourite now.

      hey, cereal brings me daily happiness, what can i say! that is so cool that jp is a big vector fan now! well, if you need a cereal that is like dessert, give KRAVE a try. i can’t believe they call it “cereal!”
