THANKSGIVING IN ST GEORGE


THANKSGIVING IN ST GEORGE, UT IS VERY DIFFERENT FROM THE MANY I SPENT IN WYOMING. PERHAPS ONE OF THE MAIN DIFFERENCES IS THE WEATHER. HERE ON THE EDGE OF THE MOHAVE FALL TAKES A LONG, SLOW TIME TO COME. JUST NOW THERE ARE CRISP MORNINGS, WARM SUNNY DAYS AND SOME OF THE TREES ARE NOW HOSTING THEIR GLORIOUS FALL COLORS. ESPECIALLY GRAND ARE THE TREES HERE THAT TURN A BRIGHT GOLDEN COLOR THAT SHINES IN THE CLOUDLESS SKY. THESE TREES REMIND ME OF DAYS PAST IN WYOMING AND COLORADO WHEN THE COTTONWOODS SEEMED TO SUDDENLY BURST INTO COLOR SOMETIME IN OCTOBER USUALLY.  

SO IT IS THANKSGIVING HERE IN ST GEORGE AND FALL IS FINALLY HERE. IT IS SO GREAT TO BE OUTDOORS THESE FALL AFTERNOONS WITH THE WARMTH OF THE SUNSHINE ON YOUR SHOULDERS. THE CLOUDLESS SKIES SEEM ALMOST TO WELCOME THE LAST RAYS OF SUMMER  AND THE ROSES STILL BLOOM, WELCOMING THE COOLNESS  WITH A BURST OF BLOSSOMS. 

SO, WHILE THOSE OF US WHO CAME HERE SEEKING A SNOWLESS WINTER, MAY HAVE SOME FOND MEMORIES OF EARLY SNOW AT THANKSGIVING, WE ARE HAPPY TO BASK IN THE WARMTH OF THE SUN, TO PLAY GOLF, TO HIKE, TO PLAY TENNIS OR THE LATEST CRAZE HERE, PICKLEBALL. WHILE IT IS EARLY IT SEEMS FOR CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS WHEN IT IS STILL WARM TO US FROM COLDER CLIMES, THANKSGIVING TIME SEEMS TO GIVE A GREEN LIGHT TO SETTING UP ELABORATE DISPLAYS AND MANY THAT ARE NOT SO ELABORATE, BUT STILL HONOR THE BIRTH OF CHRIST EVEN THOUGH  A FEW OF THE LIGHTS DO NOT SEEM TO STAY ON THRU THE NIGHT.

SO, I WELCOME THE SEASON AND LOOK FORWARD TO FEELING THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT. TO HELP GET IN THE MOOD I DID SET UP THE DISPLAY OF SIMPICH DOLLS DEPICTING THE TIME OF DICKENS AND THE SINGING OF CHRISTMAS CAROLS IN THE TOWN SQUARE. A PHOTO IS INCLUDED OF THIS DISPLAY. WARM MEMORIES ARE ASSOCIATED WITH THE SETTING UP OF THIS DISPLAY EVERY YEAR.  SO EVEN LIVING ALONE THESE DAYS THERE IS MUCH TO BE THANKFUL FOR, AND I KNOW I AM BLESSED IN MANY WAYS AND ESPECIALLY BLESSED TO BE HEALTHY IN SPITE OF THE FACT THAT I HAVE BEEN ON THIS PLANET FOR MORE THAN 80 YEARS. 

HAPPY THANKSGIVING AND MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EACH OF YOU. img_1053
