I’ve had a whirl-wind month so far and it doesn’t look like I’ll be slowing down any time soon. Renos are in full force, we’ve made it to the climax, now it’s just putting everything back together. The main floor is nearly complete and we can stop wearing our shoes in, Yay. Last weekend my parents came out from Alberta and had Thanksgiving turkey with all the trimmings. Thanksgiving to me is a time to reflect on what I have and be grateful for all the wonderful people and moments we share together. I’d have to say this was one of the best Thanksgivings in some time, I had great friends and family to share it with. I am truly grateful for all I have.
The weather sure has changed and I can really feel the dampness already. My favourite days are rainy ones, with hot drinks and warm sweaters. I’d rather be wearing layers in the cold and be cozy then in next-to-nothing and too hot. I’m going to add more ginger to my diet this fall and winter. Ginger is warming and helps to settle the fire in the belly and gets the blood flowing. An easy way to include ginger is to add it to a morning tea of hot lemon water. The lemon helps to wake up your metabolism first thing in the morning. Have the tea 30 minutes before you enjoy your breakfast.
