Happy Thanksgiving 4


Yes, it’s Thanksgiving weekend in Canada this weekend. For the first time, because of their schedules, neither of our sons will be home at the same time so we can have dinner together as a family. 🙁 So we’ve decided that in order to have our special time with both, we’ll be cooking a Thanksgiving dinner both today AND tomorrow. (Only one turkey though, for Guitar Hero’s visit today, since Curly is vegetarian so no need to have one for his dinner tomorrow.)

I have a lot to be thankful for this year — none of the health scares the family has had to deal with last year and the year before. Mom has adjusted to her new life in town and Guitar Hero’s much better too. I’ve got 2 books out this year; Hidden Heat, book 4 in my Hauberk Protection series, and my upcoming I Need You for Christmas. The invitation from Angela James, Carina Press’s executive editor.to participate in the Carina Press’s Christmas anthology was a surprise and an absolute thrill to receive. It gave a needed boost to my confidence at a time when I’ve wondered about my ability to write.  I have my fingers crossed that you will enjoy it and I’ll have more to be thankful for in the coming year.

And I’m thankful for the two new members of the Braemel household…

    Wishing you and your loved ones a beautiful holiday. I am also interested in your menu. Do you serve the same things as Americans? I have always wondered what unofficially kicks off the Christmas holiday season for other countries. Of course here on the states it is the day after our Thanksgiving. Just curious. Happy Thanksgiving!

      Our menu is pretty much the same as it is in the States–turkey, stuffing, roast potatoes, veggies of all types. I have added a sweet potato dish over the years after getting to try one in Texas a few years back. For dessert tonight, I will be doing a peach Melba crisp, and tomorrow a pumpkin pie. Oh and our Christmas kickoff used to start after Hallowe’en but these days the stores are already shelving their Christmas decorations.

    Leah,
    Thank you for sharing this post. I am thankful for many things this year & one of them is finding you. I love the Hauberk series & read them in a very short amount of time because I was hooked. I will always continue to be a fan of yours.
