snow season has begun. is it snowing in your town yet? when your car door is frozen shut, you know that special time of year is finally here. saturday it snowed and snowed and snowed; big, fat, fluffy flakes. i've never seen snowflakes so huge. it was so beautiful. we pulled on boots and trudged around in it with our puffy coats on. (the complaints of the cold are a lot less frequent wearing a sleeping bag around your torso.) the boy loved his little dollar mittens with bear faces on them (thank you, Target) and dan was, of course, in heaven. i have about a million photos of benji looking over dad's shoulder. they're just asking for a montage.
am really looking forward to thanksgiving and the week ahead. i am hoping to make this week one of conscious thankfulness. i heard in church today that being grateful is a step ahead of being thankful. gratefulness is thankfulness in action. i hope to do small things to show my gratitude; to be more thoughtful, kind-hearted and patient. i am even attempting to comment on blogs a bit more than i usually do. it's such a small thing that can make someone feel so good.
happy sunday evening.
p.s. i made stuffing for supper tonight. don't you love a little preliminary taste of thanksgiving? i added italian sausage, chopped apple, craisins, and pecan bits to my favorite recipe. mmm. mm. where have pecans been all my life?
