Gobble gobble

Happy Thanksgiving! It was a weekend of family and feasting. Like all of you, I have ups and downs in life but I have so much to be thankful for. And while we should count our blessings every day, sometimes we need a quiet day to remember what's important.
And in another thanksgiving tradition, I cleaned out my closet and ended up with 2 garbage bags full of clothes which I dropped off at the charity store.

I am currently sprawled out on the sofa in a turkey induced coma-like state. Here is the culprit.

All the fixings. No Martha Stewart presentation here - we're simple folk! Note the lovely chunk of jelly cranberry blob near the top. Yumm

And the finale. No thanksgiving is complete without pumpkin pie

One last thing I am thankful for........the person who invented Lycra for my thanksgiving stretchy pants ;)

  1. Kim ~
    Want to come clean my closet? I have clothes in it I haven't worn (or fit in to) for years!!!
    Happy Thanksgiving to you! I do hope Millie got to share in the feast.
    Pug hugs :)

  2. Lovely feast!!! Who needs Martha Stewart?
    Glad you had a great Thanksgiving. Enjoy your rest on the sofa.

  3. *****a belated blessed favorite holiday of them all. can't wait myself...enjoy your rest! tom

  4. Looks like a scrumptious meal to me, Martha Stewart is over rated any way .
    Pumpkin pie is my favorite pie this time of year, with dollop of whipped cream on top.

    I'm glad that you had a great thanksgiving feast with your family.
    Hooray for lycra.
    I'm cooking my chicken today. A turkey is too big for just the two of us.


  5. I am so glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. Your dinner looks wonderful and so does that pumpkin pie. I just love that you had a nice day.

  6. Mmmmmmmmm.... you're making me very hungry! I prefer the jellied stuff over the lumpy stuff too.... and who can resist swimming in mashed taters and gravy! Pumpkin pie..... Mmmmmm....

  7. Hurrah for lycra indeed! From stretchy pants to spanks (when needed, lol) to 'comfort fit jeans' I A-D-O-R-E stretchiness!
    And tho I've always been a bit 'unique' in the categories of personal fashion and home decore (to mention only two, lol) each year finds me more fond of ignoring Martha and pants that need to be zipped with the aid of a pair of pliers...

    Happy happy (belated) Thanksgiving - and thank you for the reminder that we all have something (or things) to be thankful for - and to share whatever blessing overflow we can. Be it extra clothing (a FAB TG tradition idea), food, a kind word, a helping hand or cheerful heart.


  8. It all looks delicious! So glad you had a good weekend. Now I can't wait for our so I can enjoy the turkey coma as well. Your pictures of the Fiber Festival look like so much fun!

  9. Everyone needs a good pair of eating pants. You dinner looks delicious. Happy Thanksgiving Kim!

  10. Kim, I was remiss by not mentioning how lovely your rug display was for the fiber fair. I hope it went well. My mouth is watering over your turkey dinner and that pie, oh my...we all secretly keep a pair of fat pants for such an occassion...greetings, Julie.

  11. yyyyuuuuummmm! your thanksgiving meal looks wonderful! do you still have your stretchy pants on? i cant wait! hope you are having a good week and enjoying your evening!

  12. That's my favorite TG meal...simple and wonderful. I'm glad you had a good day. Ditto on Lycra and huge thanks to whoever came up with elastic.
