  1. Yay for Canadian Thanksgiving Day on Monday, October 10! Not only that, but October 10 is World Mental Health Day, Columbus Day in America, Health and Sports Day in Japan and my son's birthday!
    Great list you have submitted. Which reminds me, I've got some Rolo ice cream in my British fridge.
    Jemi, may you and your loved ones have a peaceful and positive Canadian Thanksgiving, eh :)

  28. Your post made me smile. Thank you. Hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Jemi.

    Ice cream with my beloved Rolos? I've never seen it either. Maybe because Hershey produces Rolos in the US and Nestle produces them everywhere else? I must do some research...

  40. We don't have thanksgiving in Australia, but I really like the idea of a day for being thankful. We need to be reminded to be gateful for what we do have. It's too easy to grumblbe about what we don't have all the time.

  41. Tahlia - You're so right. It's so easy to complain and always want more or better. It's good to remember just how much we have to be grateful for!
