Good Friday morning, my friends! I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving Day! Our day was cozy, quiet, and filled with family, food, and fun. Our turkey dinner was a team effort. To this day, I don't know how my mother did it all those years. Thanksgiving morning, there was a semi-frozen turkey in the kitchen sink, and a few hours later, she served an entire Thanksgiving feast. Fortunately, I have several volunteers who help make the magic happen. I did set the table all by myself, though.
There were hiccups, of course. The pop-up timer had an off day, so the turkey needed extra time in the oven. This, of course, meant the side dishes needed to come out and wait a bit. But in the end, we sat down to a delicious meal and a wonderful evening. There was football, pumpkin pie, trivia games, and lots of laughter. Finally, the dishwasher hummed, the counters gleamed, and the tree lights glistened. The Christmas season is here!
Mocha and I will be easing into it. How about you?
Happy Weekend, my friends.
