The Day After Thanksgiving

Let me begin by hoping that you and yours have had a blessed Thanksgiving.

In my book, that includes these hopes:

  • no one choked on a turkey bone
  • no one got in an accident driving to or from the location of the feast
  • no one overturned the gravy on great-grandma’s linen tablecloth
  • if living alone, that you had good food, good music, or a great movie to engage you
  • the food was both delicious and plentiful
  • the conversation was engaging
  • after the meal, you still had room for pie

Since my dear husband’s death earlier this year — I have had many firsts. But I have to say that this Thanksgiving was delightfully happy. My daughter, who lives many states away, is an exquisite baker of pies (she has many talents, but this is the yummiest).  The pie that got my attention was baked in a split pie pan. I had no idea that such a pan existed. She baked an apple pie on one side and a cherry pie on the other.

I got to join my brother and his wife for dinner. That was great fun, and I brought home enough for dinner tonight. We went out to a restaurant for dinner, and then they took me to their house to watch the first Christmas movie of the season. When I got home, I was greeted with quite a few messages from friends hoping that I had a good Thanksgiving. Indeed I did.

There is much to be grateful for — and I am, indeed, a very thankful woman.

    I’m glad you had a good Thanksgiving! Mine was different because I am in quarantine so my future daughter-in-law and niece made the turkey and all the fixings, though I had made the pies on Wednesday when no one else was here. I ate in the bedroom while everyone else was in the Dining Room – I was with them by way of Zoom! It was good, but different!

    I am having a virtual dinner with my daughter’s family tonight — which we did one time before. We are doing it via Facebook Messenger — and I am looking forward to it! Thank you, Carol for your comment, I wish you & yours a Happy Thanksgiving and looking forward, a good first Sunday in Advent. Ann

  3. Sounds like a wonderful time !! Even in my crippled condition, I did get some good food delivered by Publix and watched a Christmas video I own.
