Thanksgiving dinner 2011 is now just a memory. I had enough food prepared for all of you, but there were only 4 of us. We ended up with an extra at the table. One of Mom's friends plans fell through so I picked her up and brought her here. It's a good thing I cook like my Grandmother
and prepare way more than I need. Lots of leftovers for tomorrow. (So Michelle, you can come over)
I didn't make the pie yet. Yesterday a friend called after lunch and said she had the coffee pot on and a fresh bottle of Baileys. So obviously sitting out visiting her on the deck took priority for a few hours.
And when I got home another friend had dropped off a pumpkin pie and a pan of pumpkin squares with cream cheese icing. I figured that was enough dessert for now.
That picture is pretty much the scene here. We are all stuffed to the max. But poor Millie is worst of all. It would appear that some people at the table (not me) were sneaking treats under the table.
Miss Millie has been sick twice so far. All her blankies are in the washer.
Poor little thing is lying here looking all sick and pathetic.
Aside from that little glitch it was a wonderful thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for - wonderful friends and family here and away. I am especially thankful for the family members who were with me last week at a difficult time.
We shouldn't need a holiday to remind ourselves to be thankful.
It should be a daily mantra.
