There is no commercialism - decorations are generally from the earth - there is no crazy mad rush to shop for gifts that people don't need - All that matters is being with family and eating!
And that is what I did today - EAT and EAT some more. I could hardly lift my over-stuffed butt off the sofa to make this post! LOL
I usually try to make a special breakfast when it is a holiday so this morning we started with Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon. Then the main event - Roast Turkey, mashed potatoes, squash, turnip and carrots in a brown sugar glaze and cranberry sauce. Not the real kind - the yucky lumpy kind ------we like the jellied version in the can - you know the one that comes out in a big plop in the bowl. LOL Yes, we are real connoisseurs! And of course, pumpkin pie.
Ugggh, I felt like a big lump when we were finished so I forced myself to go for a little walk around the local cemetery. The sun was just starting to drop. Here are a few photos.
