|High Point, NJ in the Autumn.|
If the weather gives a break then I am going to get a Christmas tree this weekend. It's not usual for me to decorate this early, but I really feel like some ornament and garland hanging is the medicine of choice to lift the gloom of these early snowstorms. (That and some brandied egg nog. I bought Soy Egg Nog to try.)
I think I may pull out some of those remaining record albums and lose my voice singing along. Lucy (dog) is never sure what to make of those sing out loud moments of mine.
My turkey is defrosting in the fridge; the dessert will be apple pie with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. It will be a good day to reflect on the happy moments and the trying ones, but most of all to just feel peaceful and thankful for all the moments that make up a lifetime.
Thanks to all of you for visiting and sharing your time and kindnesses. Thanksgiving is universal, and in the USA we celebrate on Thursday. It's our official day to acknowledge and remember, to gather with family and friends if we are able, and to enjoy good food, parades, and whatever else you want to keep close.
Wishing All of You a Very Happy Thanksgiving!
