GIVING THANKS

While we live in very unusual times right now with our current state of things... I still enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday. My favorite of the year, and it did, and still does have fond memories for me. The crispness of the autumn air, the seasonal decorations, watching of the Thanksgiving parade in Philly, and the wonderful smells that would radiant the home from my father preparing our huge feast of the incoming family. I would often sneak little taste of the turkey and stuffing. My father used a family recipe for his stuffing, made with onion, sage and thyme. I can still smell it to this day if I think about.  Then most of the day would be spent lounging about. While my father and grandmother are passed on, I will always be thankful for them and my memories. Now most of this still rings true, except now either my aunt or sister host the day. My aunt especially is a very good cook, her role model being that of Julia Child, and for that I am thankful. And even in this current state we're in, I am happy for my little Buster, my little abode, my good friends far and wide, my family, and my good health , and for all of you, who stop in many times daily. And for all these things, I AM TRULY GRATEFUL!!!
I hope you all have a Lovely Thanksgiving!
