I hope that you had a nice Thanksgiving! Mine was the best one ever and I don’t even know why. There is something about getting older, I think that one becomes more content. We had the altered menu and had lots of fun with the recipes. My fav was probably the corn casserole with homemade cornbread crust. Yum. I put out all the good silver and crystal even though it was just the 5 of us. It takes me 6 hours to make it and about 10 minutes to eat it…that is what we say in the Plantress family. Emily had her girlfriends over and I had fires in the fireplace. We went shopping. I bought Em a Tri Delt formal at Loehmanns and it looks fantastic! And high heeled black shoes that will last forever. (forever, ever?)
We watched movies, snuggled with girls and dogs, shopped with Caroline, ate brownies and pie, bought new dog beds, vacuumed up leaves in the house, chopped leaves outside the house, split wood-Rich does that-, walked the gunpowder trails, and started decorating for the holidays. Lest you think that I am too perfect let me share with you that my house smells faintly of rotting flesh as the mice (I HOPE) that I poisoned decompose slowly in the walls and attics, crawlspaces and subfloors of our dusty old farmhouse. Can’t you just smell it? I love Holiday scented febreeze!
