a small-scale thanksgiving...

Today is Thanksgiving here in Canada and I am grateful...

certainly for the sweetest, most considerate comments from my bloggy friends on my anniversary post.   Your friendship has been a blessing this past year.

And for the acts of kindness that have come my way when I have needed it the most.

When Court woke up on Sunday morning, squashed between Kevin and I, and said "what are we going to do first today?" I told him to get dressed because we were going OUT for coffee.  My dear friend had given me a gift card and we were going to use it.

He made sure to bring a magazine for me to read although I never got the chance.  We simply dunked our biscotti in my coffee and talked about the day ahead. My boy is at his loveliest first thing in the morning when, I am afraid, I am not.  I took the time to drink this special little person in along with my pumpkin spice coffee misto...and to kiss his cheeks.

Later that day I fixed a small-scale thanksgiving following the recipes found in the November 2009 issue of Cookie magazine which folded like so many last year.  Missing Cookie magazine.

The roasted cranberries and pears were yummy...

and I made my first pumpkin pie at Kevin's request.

Now I just hope to have the opportunity this week to give back to those that have been so lovely to me...

and show how thankful I really am.
