A Thankful Night and Day in Detroit

I had the day off on Saturday so I spent my morning at an Art show in Columbus where a group of Artists gathered to sell all of their handmade goods. They had so many great things there that I wanted to purchase, and I wish I would have taken some pictures. It was an enjoyable morning well exhausted into the late afternoon while I spent the rest of the day looking forward to our little road trip up to Michigan.

That night after Arthur got out of work, we planned to drive up to Detroit to stay with my sister so we could spend an early Thanksgiving meal with mom the next day. I was so looking forward to spend the day with Art, the family, and our puppy dog.

Arthur and I were responsible for the drinks and the ice cream, of course, so we stopped at jenis and packed our pints with dry ice and headed for Detroit. My sister and her husband were already in bed when we arrived to find a clean set of towels on our beds with a birthday card. They were such good hosts, and their house continues to feel homier every time I visit.

The next day sweet sister baked me a birthday cake, to go along with dessert after our delicious early Thanksgiving meal. Mom baked an awesome loaf of bread and some pies along with my favorite pumpkin cookies and sent much of it home with me afterwards. I was so thankful to be back with family over a good Thanksgiving meal and to have Arthur come join us this year.

I am so blessed and have so much to be thankful for!
