Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Thank you sweetly for all the congrats and well wishes! Mr. Darcy and I truly feel blessed to be sharing our first Thanksgiving day together and we have many, many blessings to be thankful for.
At the homestead kitchen today, a honey-baked ham with glaze sauce, collard greens, sweet potato souffle, biscuits and peach cobbler with whipped cream was on the menu!
It was Abbie-approved. She loved the ham and biscuit on her little plate.
Out tummies are all full and cozy. I hope you and your families all have a blessed Thanksgiving. We couldn't ask for a better one ourselves.
So many things to be thankful for today and ALWAYS!!!!
I count each of the readers and commenters of this blog all over the world as a blessing, and please know that your emails and positive comments really have touched my heart.
We look forward to many things this long, weekend together and stitching up a Christmas ornie (me) and also putting out our Christmas village together tops the list. Exploring out into the mountains as a cold front is coming through this weekend will have us sorting our mittens and scarves by the front door.
I count my blessings today and always for:
my loving husband
our home filled with love and faith
Abigail, our little lump of sugar
our children
my ability to see still with glaucoma
all the new sampler patterns that make me giddy
good food and fellowship with friends
a beautiful, mountain home to nest
a fireplace to keep ourselves warm
our love for music that has grounded us
our faith in God our creator who watches and guides us
lots of mochas~!
my Kindle loaded with books to read by the fire
stitching samplers
having jobs, we are both blessed
hot water in the kettle ready for a cup of tea!
I could count so many, many more but I best go and get busy with the kitchen cleanup....
Thank you again for sharing a joyous week with us.
