Happy Thanksgiving!

Although I’m at work on my Thanksgiving (I gotta do what I gotta do), its an OK day for fall.

This  has to be the one thing that I love about living in New York City, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Although in all my years in NYC I’ve never physically gone to any of the parades, I can still see it on TV 🙂 . I really have a strong dislike for crowds. I can tolerate them but I avoid it as much as I can.

Like all the past years, I don’t have the turkey and stuffing in my home, but we do have the Oxtail. 🙂 I know I love my Oxtail. My parents being from the Caribbean and all, I had no choice growing up.

It isn’t all about the food like most people make it. It’s about the connection with other people. I’m big on holidays; Valentine’s, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Birthday, Anniversary, Cinco De Mayo, etc. LOL. Like I use to tell my previous beau, “I love you, and I know you love me, but you don’t show  me love 365 days like you should so show it on the holidays.”  Although I don’t want to make an excuse for the obvious, we don’t see our families so often so we make holidays the reason. And that’s just fine with me!

I’ve loved and I’ve lost. I’ve seen many family members disappear out of my life and it’s fine because I am truly thankful for the ones that have stayed and the new ones that have appeared. I’m blessed with all of my stresses and struggles. God gave me life and I’m living!

Happy Thanksgiving!!
What are you thankful for?

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone! I didn’t get the chance to do the decorating or candy shopping so I’m skipping out this year. Since I reside in New York we all know what that weathers been like.

This was about 1:00 pm when I took this picture. I wasn’t so surprised about the snow, being that we were a few days close to Novemeber. Since I’m an April/Spring baby, I sure remember snow on my birthday’s in the past. But other surrounding areas got hit hard with the weather. My power went out for about an hour. -_- . But It could be worst. All I can say is this weather just reminds me of LAYAWAY and Turkey season!!!!! More like oxtails in my household.

On another note, come back to me SPRING!

What’s your Favorite time of the year?
