Thanksgiving 2020

May you have a good Thanksgiving day tomorrow, my friends.  I hope you all have a delicious  meal and wonderful fellowship.    
There will be six people gathered at my mom's house tomorrow.  My sister and I helped my mom with some of the cooking today and enjoyed a good chinwag, as well.  😄  I can't wait to have my mom's delicious dressing tomorrow; it has been my favorite part of the meal for as long as I can remember.  What is your favorite dish on Thanksgiving, and by the way, do you call it stuffing or dressing?  We've always called it dressing at our house, so I don't know if that's just a regional thing or what.  Anywho, I'm also looking forward to eating some of those coconut cream and chocolate chess pies we made today.

Recipes For Thanksgiving

Hello friends.  Have you done your food shopping for next Thursday yet?  I realize that there will be smaller groups at all of our tables this year, but I assume that a lot of folks (in the U.S.) will still be cooking some sort of Thanksgiving meal.  Here are some recipes that we like to have at our Thanksgiving table, and I bet you have some very similar ones at your house.

Christmas Reading

In mid-November here in the northern hemisphere, the shadows lengthen and the darkness falls early.  Last night we were doing errands, and there was a beautiful sliver of a new moon -- an eyelash moon.  When I took Duncan out at bedtime, the stars were twinkling and were a beautiful sight to behold.  I love this time of year.  When we're out, I like to see lamplight in people's windows; it projects warmth and coziness to the outside world.  If you're lucky, you might catch glimpses of bookshelves filled with books, pictures on the wall, or family gathered around the table for dinner.  Perhaps the curtains are drawn and you'll only see the warm glow behind them.  Nevertheless, it speaks of home and hearth.  
I know some of you have already begun decorating for Christmas.  We have not, but we'll probably need to start soon.  As part of the season's rituals, I like to start my Christmas reading around the end of November or first of December.  I usually read the same books every year, but they always seem to make me happy.  I am thinking of finding some new things to add to the list though.

Fall In The Family Room

Happy November to you!  Like so many of you seem to do, I love this time of the 
year.  This is the season when I am really drawn to hearth and home.  The last time I posted, I said I would share some of my fall decor this week, so I'm starting with our family room.
