Happy American Thanksgiving Day!

Have a great Thanksgiving Day to our American Cousins from The Gnome Tapestry!

thanks-giving-tableI hope that you have a safe Thanksgiving Day!. Please be safe on the road. I hear there is snow in many parts of the US so take a little extra time. We have much to be thankful for and I hope that you do as well. One of the best is being able to spend time with family, friends, and other loved ones. I’m also thankful that the “The Gnome Tapestry” has been going on for over 3 years! I have so very many things to be thankful for that I can’t number them.

Thanks!

Lest We Forget

Take a Moment to Remember

remembrance-day-2016This is a day to remember all those who have made sacrifice for others. Take a moment today to remember those who went to war — some never to return, others returning whole or broken; both inside or out. Remember too, in addition to the soldiers, the peace keepers, the first responders and others that keep us safe. Also remember their parents, grandparents, spouses, siblings, children, grandchildren, and all who loved them and miss them.

We might agree or disagree with the wars that have happened, but regardless of that soldiers place their lives on the line for us.

Let us not forget their sacrifices.

Happy Thanksgiving Day Weekend!

Thanksgiving Day 2014Have a great Thanksgiving Day Weekend from me at The Gnome Tapestry!

I hope that you have a safe Thanksgiving Day Weekend here in Canada!. Please be safe on the road. I hear there is snow in the Prairies and Northern BC so take a little extra time. We have much to be thankful for and I hope that you do as well. One of the best is being able to spend time with family, friends, and other loved ones. We’re approaching the 3 Year anniversary of “The Gnome Tapestry” and that is only one thing I am thankful for.

Happy Fourth of July!

July 4 2015To our American Cousins, I hope you are having a great, safe, Independence Day!

Happy Canada Day! – 2016

Canada Day 2014I hope you are having a great, safe, Canada Day!

Did you know that “Canada Day” used to be called “Dominion Day”? Canada was referred to as “The Dominion of Canada” in the later 19th Century and much fo the 20th Century, just as The United States of America is called “The Republic of The United States of America.”

Of course we also used “The Red Ensign” for our flag into the 1960’s — Just thought I’d throw in that tidbit.

Thanks!

Happy New Years! 2015/2016

Happy New Years!

New Years Eve 2014I hope that 2015 was good year for you and that 2016 will be a great year! Of course there will be dips in the road of life as well as peaks, but it is travelling down the road that is the purpose and not the destination that is the goal.

Sometimes the best views are from the tops of those hills we climb, sometimes the most beautiful brooks at the bottom of the dips in the road.

Happy New Year!
