Giving Thanks

On Thanksgiving Day this year, we were planning to hang out with the extended family. However I wasn't feeling well yesterday so we had to cancel at the last minute. Instead, we spent time as a family at home, I took several short naps, watched football with my daughter and played with her all day long. I also squeezed in some work.

My wife had planned a hike for Friday and despite the sore throat I went along... And I am very grateful that I did. I am also grateeful to our great friend Megan who hung out with us for taking this picture :D
We have so much to be grateful for in Southern California, but on top of the list most people would put the year-around beautiful weather. I took the mountain roads to get to the Ventura county and drove the windy roads with music blasting and wind in my hair. It was such a clear day today on the Santa Monica Mountains and the view from up above was something to see. And on the way back, I made the drive even longer by taking Mulholland Way to Calabasas.... The marine layer was covering the ocean like a warm and cozy blanket and when we went down to the sea level to have lunch in one of my favorite joints, Neptune's Net, one would definitely need a blanket or a sweatshirt.
Well, I am giving thanks for everything I had, everything I have and everything I will have. But most of all, I am grateful for my family and our health. And Vivienne was grateful to meet a new friend. Happy belated Thanksgiving!
