Tomorrow is Thanksgiving day!
And I have to work early in the morning and come back to do overnight shift. I know,I shouldn’t be complaining,it’s a Thanksgiving reminder. I have to be thankful for having a job, right?And pay our bills.
One thing I notice in this country even on special holiday like this, still, a lot of business establishments are open. Time is money,as they say. I read a book about simple living that in Europe,majority of businesses is close for few reasons: (1) owner wants a day off and (2) it really means holiday.
I could only wish.
But I look on the brighter side. I get paid time and a half. Yay to my paycheck next pay period!
I will get off work at 1 p.m tomorrow and start cooking because I don’t trust this part to my husband. We will celebrate so simple. Unlike the previous years,we usually have companies but this time only the four of us. Yes,me and the other three crews!
I’ll be making homemade bread that I found so interesting to make. (I’ll share this recipe with you!)
I’ll make mashed potatoes.
We’ll have corn.
Last year,our very good friends celebrated with us and they brought couple dishes and one thing we won’t forget. We barely finished our desserts because we were so full.
I was asked few times if we celebrate Thanksgiving in the Philippines,as big as they do here in US? We really don’t but we celebrate Christmas and New Year bigger than here. Christmas carols,lanterns and decorations still visible until end of January.
This Thanksgiving,we are focusing on blessings we had all these years. Of course,we should not be only thankful on this day but it should be everyday. No matter how big or small the blessings are. We should all be grateful.
Oh by the way!
Unlike most people,they have turkey on the table but this year we decided to have a smaller one. And not turkey.
We’re having a ham with pineapple.Yum!
Whether you celebrate this holiday season to your country or not.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone!
