Thanksgiving Day 2011 is now just a lovely memory of a warm and happy gathering of family to share a delicious feast of a dinner to which everyone there had contributed something or things which were very very special. And some wonderful little elves cleaned up everything and put it all away when my mind was occupied with something else .
May we all be here to gather together next year and share adventures. So much is happening next year!Next year I may be able to take the long walk after eating that everyone else did this year.
So here also are some promised pictures of my mother’s china which we used this year (Spode – Romney), the table when mostly set, but before food was laid out, of Sofia and Clara considering the utterly fabulous retes (pronounced ray’tesh -meaning strudel) brought by Alice and Barney, the book in which my favorite picture of a father is found, and the picture itself of a knight in armor with his son seen over his shoulder . The last two are not of Thanksgiving of course, but I remember promising to post them on my blog. I like to keep my promises.
And may all of you had a holiday as delightful as mine, filled with great company, friendly laughter, and delicious food. I could hardly wish you more.
