It’s Thanksgiving Day. We’ve been home for nearly a month.
The two of us have enjoyed a very nice holiday. Dinner was fantastic with a 12-pound turkey, dressing,mashed potatoes & gravy, sweet potatoes with caramelized apples, cranberry salad (my specialty with strawberries, pineapple and pecans), scalloped corn, hot rolls, relishes, two different pies (apple & pumpkin praline) and wine.
This month, since returning home, we’ve been busy. We’re hosting our music club here at our house for a holiday party. In January we’ll have about a dozen house-guests for the huge Snowfest weekend. In preparation for those two events, I’ve been tackling those jobs I normally try to ignore: Window washing, china cabinet clean-out, closet rearrangement. There’s still a lot to accomplish before we open our doors to guests, but I feel like I’ve made a dent in the work that I need to accomplish. It’s tough when you’re gone as much as we’ve been gone this year.
