Thanksgiving from Southern California

THanksgiving.jpg

Only in Southern California can you wear shorts and flip flops to Thanksgiving Dinner…or should I say “Supper”?  I get them confused…or maybe they are the same.  Pretty sure there was a time that it was explained to me and there is a difference.  Anyway,  my family has their holiday meals toward the middle of the day.

And I digress…the point is that it was downright hot today.  90 degrees in the shade in Menifee (or Sun City depending on which person you ask).  I think there are places out there where the snow is already falling and the temperatures have cooled quite a bit.  Here we are still wearing sunscreen and getting pedicures!  Some might call it a blessing to have such beautiful weather all the time and I would have to agree.  Weather rarely keeps us from doing pretty much anything we want.  Except for wearing holiday sweaters…there were none of those today.

I enjoyed my day with family and promised myself that I would not work.  I even left my cell phone at home to prove the point.  It was nice.  I have lots of people that I love and lots of people that love me.  I am so grateful for that.

Hopefully you had a lovely Thanksgiving Day as well and that your heart is full of gratitude this evening.  Mine is overflowing.

From our home to yours…good night!  April and Gary Greer

Thankful in Temecula

Today is a good day to remind myself what I am thankful for, specifically about living in Temecula.  I am thankful for:

  • Great schools and even better teachers
  • Clean air and blue skies
  • Breezy afternoons and ample sunshine
  • Being an easy drive to the big cities, mountains or beaches
  • A large, visible police force
  • A lack of graffiti and violent crime
  • Beautiful neighborhoods and affordable housing
  • An abundance of parks and golf courses

I’m thankful that my kids still say the pledge of allegiance in their school and that I can enter without passing through a metal detector.  I can still talk to my banker without looking through bulletproof glass.  Miles and miles of vineyards turning fall colors right now and crisp sunrises with hot air balloons in the background…

What are you thankful for about where you live?

Cooler Weather, Temecula

I am so excited that I didn’t have to run our air conditioning today. Great breeze, cool temperatures. The sun even went down a little earlier today. Kids in bed by 8:00. It was a good day!
