This has been a great day both despite, and because of the rain that
was with us in varied forms all day. I woke up this morning filled
with memories of my mother, who created so many delicious Thanksgiving
dinners for us, her family. I miss her so much.
Last night thinking about our weekend plans -- dinner with the family
inside on Monday -- all double vaccinated except the young children,
I pulled out a recipe that I must have hand printed at a young
age from a file of hand written and typed recipes. It's for my mother's
and her mother's pumpkin pie. Steven (my husband pictured above)
is the pie maker in our family now and loves that recipe.
So to begin my posts about what I'm thankful for. Number One is my
darling husband. He is a champion. And he's making dinner right now
as I write this. My life has been so wonderful, even during this ongoing
pandemic, because I live with someone who loves me, and who I love.
I know that I'm lucky, and I'm posting this portrait I did of Steven in 2020.
I was going to call the post "This guy!" Because at least
1,000 times a day on our best days I think -- "Wow how lucky I am
to know this guy." Like tonight when we walked the 5,000 steps
I still needed to the vegetable store and back in the pouring rain.
In fact in a deluge. We were soaked through and through -- and I got
my steps -- 10,000. What's a little water?
Have a loving your life day.
