I am thankful for Sundays. I love the laid back-ness of the day. The Hubs and I have started going back to church, and I have actually started looking forward to it.
Sunday is supposed to be the day to rest. It’s the day I have off work and the day to spend with those special family members. Usually spent with either my family or his. This week, spent with adopted family. (Christmas Photo Session, coming soon!)
As I cook dinner, I am thankful for food. I know it sounds funny but since I love to cook and bake, these things are my tools. They teach me patience and care and have always taught me to be proud of my creations. My mother, my Meme and my Grandma have all been cooks. I was taught to make homemade biscuits at a young age and the men in my family take pride in their women’s work. Cooking and baking the things that my loved ones crave is what I love to do. Peanut Butter Cookies for the hubs, especially.
I love that each season has it’s own food. Summer is my favorite. All the fresh veggies, tomatoes, cucumbers, corn, squash, zucchini, and okra! But fall brings pumpkin. And the Christmas Season brings mint and chocolate and all kinds of goodies for gifts, parties and cookie swaps! Cold weather brings soups and chilis. Spring gets the grill back out. I am thankful to have been brought up in a family that loves to cook!
