Happy (full)filling Thanksgiving Y'all!
After the family feast O'lover and I retreated to our cozy home for an important session of some long overdue truth telling about a matter as significant as any other matter...What do you want for Christmas?
But first. really quickly, i'm putting on my gratitude attitude for a stream of consciousness what-i'm-thankful-for list:
-O'lover's kindness and strength
-my family. They're good people.
-folks who extend themselves to make things better
-the word "rucksack" and random words strung together
-pretty door bell rings
-hot homemade applesauce (apples from our tree) with walnuts (gathered from the park)
-living outside of the rat race
-the clicking of knitting needles & whirrrrrhummm of the sewing machine
-"Pushing Daisies" on www.abc.com
-and to go full circle...I'm so so grateful for O'lover, the holiday season. and the fact that what we want for Christmas is delicious times with delicious people sprinkled with some "good will for all" on top.
But, hey if we must have gifts (and admittedly we must)...i'm voting for original art or anything homemade or used.
What do you think about "concocting" gifts from materials at hand rather than buying them? Raw truth please.
