As I write this, many of our American friends are sitting down to their much anticipated Thanksgiving dinner. To honor this day in my own Canadian way, I have purposely stayed close to home, and chosen activities that offered an optimal opportunity to be mindful. My long swim took place under a clear blue sky and was interrupted only by the sound of birds going about their business. With the assistance of my husband and two close friends who popped in at an integral moment in the preparation of a family recipe for holiday stewed tomatoes, I am now enjoying the heavenly aroma of said sauce- infused with plenty of cloves and cinnamon. Once cooked, we are off to celebrate the day and the blessing it is to have the support and love of good friends and family. Cheers dears!
