The flooring guy was at our house on Wednesday evening (thank heavens) and he asked if we were hosting Thanksgiving dinner. I laughed because I thought he was joking. He thought I didn’t hear him so he asked again. I told him no, I couldn’t think of any guests that would like concrete dust mixed with mashed potatoes!

Does this look like a house ready to host Thanksgiving??

No it does not. We are a long ways from hosting anything. But I am so grateful that we’re making progress. Steve and I sit at the top of the stairs each night and marvel at the progress and then we talk of how excited we are that the mauve carpet is gone. We are full of gratitude.

Today we were reminded once again just how much we have to be grateful for. It was a good day. We spent it with family and good food; all things to be grateful for.

Happy Thanksgiving.
