Thanksgiving is usually one of those quiet holidays we enjoy at home because we aren’t always able to make it back to Nebraska to celebrate with family. The time off work is a welcome reprieve (although honestly, we end up doing work around our property, like putting up pasture fencing) and we still make a traditional Thanksgiving meal. However, this year, our house was bustling with visiting family and friends.
We can’t help ourselves and ended up doing a bit of work. Tractors make everything so much easier. This time, we set up a garden plot for next summer, right next to our fruit trees.
Raven has a new friend named Geo. They ran themselves silly chasing each other and running through the forest.
We had our first bonfire, burning the last of our moving boxes and scrap wood from the chicken coop.
The day of Thanksgiving, I figured it would be a good idea to go out and burn off a few calories before stuffing myself silly.
So, I was able to cross another goal off my list and run a 5k this year. Not my best final time ever but I did complete it in half an hour.

We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, counting your blessings and being grateful for this beautiful life.
