|An orange sunrise in California marks the beginning of a new adventure
Thanksgiving was last week, and I missed the Ten Things of Thankful blog hop! I was certainly thankful, but we picked last weekend to move from Utah to California, and even though we didn't actually move that many possessions, a move is still a move and so the blogging got delayed. But now we're mostly unpacked and settled in and it's time to return to blogging!
We spent Thanksgiving day with John's family. The "kids table" was filled with adults, and for the first time, my sister-in-law didn't lead children in making apple and candy turkeys. With age comes perspective, though, and it was nice to gather together and reminisce.
I'm thankful for family.
Friday morning, I woke up to a winter wonderland. Even though I doubt we'll have a white Christmas in California, it was nice to see snow before leaving Utah.

I'm thankful for the beauty of snow.
|Me and my sister, coincidentally dressed alike in black tops.
I'm thankful for my sister. And snowplows.

We are settling in here. I'm thankful that John is really enjoying his job. I'm thankful that we are living close to the grandchildren now, and I have already been able to spend some time with them. Sunday we will attend church in our local congregation, which will help us feel even more settled.
