I took this week off from work. No specific plans except to sleep a lot and do whatever I wanted, when I wanted, if I wanted. Today is my last day of Staycation. Mom and I made peanut butter cookies, almond spritz cookies, caramel apple fudge, and buttery coconut pecan candy. We made pies for Thanksgiving dinner, spent a bit of time at the Yarn shop, and generally relaxed. I have to admit, I really enjoyed having this time off. I even lost almost 5 pounds...who would have thought it?
Thursday was our Thanksgiving feast. We had 3 of John's sisters, along with our nephew and his wonderful family join us for dinner. Turkey cooked on the Big Green Egg, glazed ham, candied sweet potatoes, fresh green beans with onion and bacon, maple-glazed butternut squash, deviled eggs, pickles, olives, and for dessert, 4 kinds of pies.
It's always so good to have family together. Here we are with most everyone enjoying post-dinner conversation.
Good food, conversation, laughter, stories, plenty of love to go around.
Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving and hoping the coming Christmas season is joyful and abundant.
Thanks for stopping by.
