I'm giving thanks today for a wonderful Thanksgiving.
The turkey was done on schedule and wonderfully smokey and juicy, thanks to Tom, who monitored it faithfully.
There were no lumps in the gravy thanks to the help of son Jake who whisked vigorously as I added the thickening. The mashed potatoes were smooth thanks to Cousin Dan. Those fresh herbs made for a wonderfully aromatic stuffing. Jan and Ann brought lovely hors d' oeuvres. Aunt Evelyn added cake and fresh berries to the dessert table.
But mostly I'm thankful that we could be together, mixing family and friends of three generations, and share in the good food and good fortune that we enjoy. As some of us reminisced about the "old days", and realized how far we've come in sixty years, we all felt very fortunate to be where we are today.
Jake added that he was thankful for the Internet. Me too. You, my virtual friends and family, are very real and important to me too.
And right now I'm thankful that it's another new day, the sun is shining, and instead of going shopping in the wee hours, I've had a good night's sleep and now I'm off to have Friday morning breakfast with friends.
I'm a little tired today. But it's a good tired.
Sorry. I have no new photos for today. I was too busy yesterday.
