Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving this weekend. Of course it’s nice to have a long weekend from work, but it’s also nice to stop and appreciate all you have to be thankful for.
I was lucky enough to have four days off (very thankful for that!) and spent the first two taking care of our little man.
He had his teeth cleaned and a lump removed so is sentenced to the cone and some pain medication. I quite enjoyed having an excuse to laze around, sit on the couch, and watch lots of movies!
On Saturday I spent hours watching the Ironman World Championships. I am in awe of all the athletes and their incredible feats, especially Mirinda Carfrae’s run, which was the third fastest of the day—out of men and women.
Kelly and I went for an amazing trail run on Sunday.
We ran trails that were new to us, crunched on fallen leaves, and enjoyed the peaceful morning.
From there I ate my weight in cabbage rolls at my grandma’s house!
I looked back at my Thanksgiving post from last year and I can basically say I am thankful for all the same things: my husband and Harold, an incredibly supportive family (both mine and Kelly’s), health, and travel.
This year I’m also going to add in warmth. I am so thankful to be able to flip a switch to turn on our fireplace or turn up our furnace. Being perpetually cold, I realize this is a gift many people in this world aren’t given.
Happy Thanksgiving! How did you/do you celebrate, and what are you thankful for?
