First off, I survived the dreads of Black Friday. The store was actually insane which is very unusual for us. But all was over by 1 and I headed home to get naked and take a nice afternoon soak in the tub, a glass of wine, and nap after getting up so early, and my travels. But the Thanksgiving holiday was a good one and always is. It's one of my favorite holidays, where we can just enjoy the earthly delights, and not worry about giving gifts. It was also my first visit to the ancestral home since my Mother adopted Lilith from my aunt and uncle, who had rescued her, but found her size very overwhelming of them. I'm here to tell you she is one sweet dog, and required a ton of pets and attention. I love her color and then there is her whiskey colored eyes........
the Mother's holly is going to be beautiful of the holidays
At my Aunt's, would you believe her roses just stopped blooming!?! She had picked these just the day before.
Of course the pièce de résistance was the dinner!!!!!!!
Our holiday wouldn't be complete without the talent and masterpiece of my good friend the Dame's floral company, The Paper Moon, who created the flowers for my Aunt and Uncle, for having us for dinner. She out did herself indeed!
After the dinner we all took a walk to get some air before dish duty. And would you believe I had two, TWO helpings of everything? Well I did.
And tonight on the menu is left overs.
