Marketing has been done and Poppa and I are waiting with great anticipation for those first bites of pork roast (no turkey this year), dressing, cranberry sauce, gravy, turnip greens, deviled eggs, radishes, olives, sweet potatoe pie with whipped cream and iced tea. One of the best parts of Thanksgiving is all of the left overs, football and no cooking for a couple of days :)
Our table centerpiece this year is a maple leaf platter, a ceramic pumpkin, an autumn swag with leaves, berries, gourds, and corn complete with tassels, a pumpkin spice candle in a canning jar and a delightful handmade painted fabric highly scented crow with wire legs. The candle and the crow were part of a birthday gift from a very dear friend and business associate.
Unfortunately our family does not get along any more so traditional family get together dinners are a thing of the past. Poppa and I are sick with a nasty bug this year but we love each other and enjoy each other's company, no matter the circumstances and we accept things for the way they are. We will enjoy our Thanksgiving and be thankful for each other and God's grace.
May God bless you and your Thanksgiving.....
