Tree was set up on Saturday and as I write this Sunday afternoon is awaiting ornaments.
Thanksgiving gathering last Thursday was marvelous.
Turkey turned out as the best I've ever made. Fresh, locally raised made the difference as did the dry herb and salt rub I used the day before. Lots of yummy leftovers including turkey pot pie and turkey coconut curry. Soup still to be made too.
Checked my record keeping and discovered I hadn't hosted Thanksgiving since 2012 when we still lived in the Lodge. It was the last Thanksgiving we spent with my Mom. She died then in September 2013.
But now it's time for Christmas preparations.

Our daughter in Buffalo, her husband and two daughters arrive for a week long visit
on the 19th. Revision: they arrive late tonight (Thursday) due to a major snow storm headed to Buffalo on Thursday night.
They haven't been here since June 2021 and we've made a lot of changes since then.
The whole family will gather here for the feast on Thanksgiving Day.
A wonderful time of year so I'm posting this and taking a pause for a bit.
[The card in the background came to me last Thanksgiving from Mary of Trundling Through Life. Thank you, Mary.]

Here's our car sitting on a foggy mountaintop in PA at the end of October. I'm thinking it's a metaphor for how I feel about what's to come in this country after Tuesday's elections.

I missed the last two Wednesday walks because of illness and then traveling so today's walk felt good.
We went south from our gathering point to Claremont NH and parked to join the Sugar River Rail Trail. It was a 4 mile hike roundtrip next to the Sugar River.
The temperature got up to 60º or more so it turned out to be a beautiful day for our hike.
Next week I will miss again as friends are coming to visit.
