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.

Turn back the clock!

Don’t forget to turn your clocks back!

daylight-savingsDon’t forget to turn your clocks back tonight… at least here in many places in the Northern Hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere in many places you have already turned your clock forward. 🙂 Confusing, huh. BTW who collects all the interest on the time saved with Daylight Savings time?

Happy Thanksgiving! 2016

thanks-giving-tableI want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that you can spend the day with those you love and consider all that you have to be thankful for. Please be safe on the roads if you are travelling.

It’s Thanksgiving Day in Canada, Monday October 10th, 2016. We hold it the second Monday in October. Our harvest is on average a bit earlier than in the US so our end of harvest holiday is earlier as well.

Thanks for dropping by!

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.

In Memory – 9-11

twin-towers-9-11Let us remember all those lost to terrorism. We might not know their names, nor the lands they were all from, but their lives matter. Let’s remember the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. As we do, let’s also spare a thought for those affected by terrorism in other places in attacks large and small, guided and misguided.
