Hello, and welcome to Sunday Sundries! I’m here to ramble on about my week, it helps me be grateful and to “celebrate” all the small (and large) extraordinary moments in my life.
Today is Thanksgiving in Canada and I’ll share more about that after my Sunday Sundries feature … so many gorgeous images to choose from and I’m so grateful and humbled by the people who share. Thank you all so much!
So please help me celebrate the work of these four talented artists! I was captivated by the colours, textures, and light in these beautiful images:

Last week I was dazzled by our colourful autumn display, but this week, not so much. A wind of ginormous proportions visited our area and blew leaves off trees like rain. Today it’s calm, but we’re staring at bare branches. Bare grey branches that we’re going to be staring at for almost 8 months. But you know what? I still see beauty. Sunrise cast a reddish golden glow over the lake this morning and I was able to see more of it because of the very absence of those leaves (talk about being positive, right?) But really, I mean it.
There’s a coziness in the air. Last night we listened to geese honking, coyotes yipping, and grasses rustling (as we ate our yummy Thanksgiving pumpkin pie.)
What else am I celebrating?
- My family. Even though our daughters (and families) weren’t here this Thanksgiving, they were definitely here in (our) hearts.
- Being outside, cleaning up the yard, cutting grass, and washing windows on a very warm autumn day.
- The sweet smell of wood smoke drifting through the air as people burn trimmed branches and fallen trees.
- The quietness, the stillness, that falls over the lake in October.
- A comforting turkey dinner.
- Pumpkin pie.
- All of you who visit, read, comment, and encourage me on my blogging adventures. I appreciate everyone so much – thank you!
