The weekend I’ve been working hard to accomplish is now in the Chez Schnitzer History book. Our Thanksgiving dinner was a success: great food (18kg //40lbs of turkey), potatoes, cabbage, quiche, artichoke salad, cranberries, infused water, PIES, laughs, stories, gratitude-around-the-table and love.
Our house guests had fun and met many great people. They can forward their action in their new community and the region.
Our girls had fun too, spending time with family, and with me on What’s App.
Now the flat is clean, laundry is done, the last of the turkey has “lunch” written all over it, and my heart is full.
To my Mark: thank you for everything, every minute of every day! You make my heart sing! I’m so thankful for you.
Happy Happy everyone….here comes the Winter holidays….
Today in Texas (yesterday from here) a very special lady celebrates her 80th birthday. She is the wife of Hank, for 59 years. She’s the mom of Denise and David (we’re in our 50s). She bid her brother “safe passage” last week ~ they were 14 months apart in age. She’s a sister-in-law, a grandmother, an aunt, a friend and the hardest working woman I know. She’s my Mom.
I wish for her the stars and the moon; bright sunshine and gentle breezes. She loves good food and great wine, I wish her those and more. She loves her neighbors and her friends, but she dotes on her family most.
Of all the things I love about my mom…well, there’s not just one thing….it’s how she loves life and lives it to its fullest. She’s a travel bug, and has been on each of the seven continents. She’s wise, generous, talented, loving and true.
May you have a splendid, delicious, FUN and HAPPY🎉 BIRTHDAY, Mom!! May all your dreams come true!!✨ I love you!
