Not being a matriarch has it’s advantages. Especially on Thanksgiving. While everyone else is running around in a whirl of hoopla, I get to sit back and take it easy. Eat. Wear sweatpants. Watch It’s a Wonderful Life for the elevety thousandth time. And while everyone else is diving into the dishes, I am eying a Barkalounger and a bowl of dip with my name written all over it.

Let me tell you something, it’s tough.

Guys, it’s Thanksgiving.

Today is the day we give thanks. The day we look back and reflect up on all the things for which we are most grateful and indebted. For some folks this means dinner with family, but for some it is an occasion to take an inventory of what is important. What is sacred. What is humbling.

When I look back at this past year, even just this last month, and I list all the things I am most thankful for, you are most certainly one of them. Yes, you. Your readership, your comments, and your very presence in my life has made a difference that is hard to describe. It is something for which I am profoundly grateful.

Because I don’t say it enough: Thank You. 

Happy Thanksgiving 🙂

    Happy Thanksgiving Peaches! You never fail to cheer me. Thanks for all the glitter studded goodness, and quite frankly, pictures of your cat. Three cheers for you, I drank at least one to you last night at the feast.

  2. Dana says

    I LOVE the new pictures. Do you seriously have a wall with book pages? How cool is that!
    And please more of Lola! Such a beauty!

    I’m a new reader – came across your blog a few weeks ago. Just wanted to say I love it and thanks for all of the great ideas! I’m a fellow lover of cats, glitter and making things out of weird junk from around the house. I’ve already tried making some of your coffee filter flowers, which were a completely new concept to me – love it! I think I’ll be trying your glitter plates next!

    We are grateful for you too Aunt Peaches, we are pretty much hermits and your postings enrich our lives. Enjoy your day. Love your new changing header, especially that photo of Lola, that girl is so pretty!

    Thank YOU for sharing your time and know-how with us. It’s certainly made my life more colorful (party hats and paper flowers), and inspired me snazz up my own blog. Also, before I read you I had no idea about the Christkindlemarket in the Daley plaza. SO GOING THERE this year.

  7. says

    Happy Thanksgiving to you too! I’m looking forward to everyone else leaving for Thanksgiving feasts so I can do exactly what you described – sit here with food, the TV and my laptop. And I’m looking forward to it!

    You are very welcome. Where did you get that disgusting picture? We, your readers, are thankful for you also. And Lola.
