Post Thanksgiving Report

So, how was your Thanksgiving? Ours was wonderful, one of our best ever. I think because we only had 15 people. I guess that's my limit; any more than that and insanity takes over. Anyway, the food was all good and hot, the company was fun, there were no fights and {Hallelujah!} no broken dishes!



The Lord of the Manor and I got up early this morning and went for a walk. (We're trying to work off the potatoes, gravy, pumpkin and pecan pie, but then we had pie for breakfast so I'm thinking maybe we need to try a little harder.) Then he went to work on Teen1's Volkswagen, and I did hostess aerobics; taking the table apart, putting chairs back, laundering the table linens, sweeping, mopping, washing the pans, etc.

I won't be going anywhere near the Mall today. Instead I'll be working on some Christmas craft projects. I'm making some Putz houses using these instructions. I also got some clear ornaments that I'm going to paint. If all goes well I'll show some of the houses tomorrow.

Looks as if you had a Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving. Love the gravy pitcher! Pie for breakfast the next day is a good thing, with or without a walk beforehand.

It does look like a Norman Rockwell painting. You have a humongous table!! I am sorry you had to take it apart alone!!

Happy to hear a good time was had by all and the food sounded yummy. I love anything sweet for breakfast!!
