happy thanksgiving!

a grateful day for us here at our home. 
semi~quiet, {must have music} just cooking for me and my husband~ who is supervising. making sure i don't overcook the lamb. 
we listened to what has been our traditional Thanksgiving Day song for the past maybe 10 years~ 'Alice's Restaurant'. dear Arlo Guthrie.

i am thankful for {the short list} ::

1.  my husband 
2.  family {they ultimately still love me & my many flaws}
3.   friends who remain friends after many years {ditto, well... maybe...}
4.  good food
5.  life { i am still living! }
6. music to carry me through
7. oh yeah, the wonderful community of etsy!

soaring wings

so i carved these angel wings for someone i was once very close to.
for her birthday. i sent it in the mail today. 
i hope it means something to her, since creating them for her meant a lot to me too.
