Happy Thanksgiving!

I know that Thanksgiving is almost a week away, but we're headed out of town for the week and I wanted to share this.  Have a happy Thanksgiving - may your plate be full, your heart be grateful, and your half of the wishbone be longer!

The "before" picture for Thanksgiving dinner . . . a turkey Little and I met last week

If Turkeys Thought
- Jack Prelutsky, Children's Poet Laureate

If turkeys thought, they'd run away
a week before Thanksgiving day
but turkeys can't anticipate,
and so there's turkey on my plate


-Ralph Waldo Emerson

For each new morning with its light
For rest and shelter of the night
For health and food
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends

And I would be remiss if I didn't share a few menu ideas:
My mom's pecan pie


  1. I am thankful for a daughter who delights the world with her generous spirit, sharing words and good food all year long! Missing you and yours so very much but I'm thankful you didn't move all the way to the moon. And just to be fair - its actually Grandma Vi's pecan pie recipe. Love you!
