post thankful day....

*** i bought food... i was gonna whip up an elegant non-turkey thanksgiving feast with fresh fish, roasted carrots and potatoes, string beans, cornbread stuffing... but my laziness overcame me.

*** i went out wednesday night and brought home leftover chinese food so i had vegetable mei fun, spring rolls... along with some moscato spumanti!

*** i can't recall the tv program i was watching... i am sure the memory will return to me later but i do recall listening to the music backdrop and hearing corinne bailey rae singing "is this love". i didn't recall how i knew the song until a couple of minutes later. i've said this before, that i do not like remakes... yet this one almost fooled me... her version of bob marley's original is nice!

*** i made 2 moves on thursday... from the bedroom to the livingroom... it was a solitudinal day. i spoke with my friends and relatives but i wasn't motivated to move and it was just what i needed... in my quiet time i took a moment to reflect over the 11 months of 2010 and all that i had to be thankful of... food i didn't want to cook, shelter, a closet spilling with clothes and shoes, steam from the radiator, and lastly but certainly not least my loving family... i'm so blessed....

Not a bad rendition but I was captivated by her hair :-) I did the same with my week off...a little of this, a little of that and WHOLE lot of nothing. It was great!

GC... one of the reasons why i don't leave where i'm living is because of the steam during the winter and i love the retro-ness of the radiator...

KayC... not a bad version, right? i so dig lady corinne and her hair is truly lovely! i'm glad you relaxed and had a great time doing it!

Beautiful lady...sometimes we forget our blessings, however small, but when we just pause a moment we realize that we have all we truly need, right now. Loved this post!
