The Thanksgiving cactus is blooming in the dining room.
I don't know if we will be dining in the dining room, with just three of us for Thanksgiving dinner. The kitchen table might be cozier. Jake will be joining us. We are delivering Jill and the kids to the airport tomorrow for their flight to Denver to join the other grandparents for their traditional Thanksgiving. I am hoping for the best.
We had a few days, or half days without rain so we got busy outside.
On Saturday Tom took the leaf blower to the roof. I worked nearby, cleaning up leaves and cedar droppings from the front walk and path, with my phone in my pocket, ready to call 911.
Then it was time to clean up the mess from the roof. I raked up the moss and debris from the shady side of the roof while Tom took the leaf blower to the front walk and driveway.
Then While Tom put up the house lights, I took the blower to the patio.
It's great to have everything looking so tidy.
Tom put up more decorations. We used to do a lot more, but as stuff wore out, we decided not to replace it and just do less. We're OK with that.
I cleaned out the front porch pots and stuffed them with greens from the yard.
I don't know who will even see the front porch or the other decorations, except the package delivery guys, as those packages keep coming, but we will see them and we will know that as Thanksgiving arrives, Christmas will not be far behind.
