Perched on the sideboard in my dining room are several woodland creatures, overseeing the preparations and waiting to hold turkey, stuffing, and other delicious side dishes.
The deep wells on the huge Woodland Spode turkey platter hold all the juices from the tasty bird!
But not from this bird! He’s a guest.
Serving spoons and plates await the cranberry orange relish (homemade and my favorite) …
… and others hold the turnips and stuffing (with sausage and dried cherries!) …
… and an antique bread board holds homemade
pumpkin bread … at least for the few minutes before it disappears!
Spoon rests are ready to protect the beautiful sideboard.
The pumpkins will move to make room for other goodies …
and the candles will be lit.
After the feast
and a walk in the woods with the dogs
pumpkin pie will be served
on the turkey dishes.
NOW it’s time for a nap.
^^^^AND FOR MY THANKSGIVING CHALLENGE^^^^
A REMINDER OF WHAT I AM THANKFUL FOR
My son is home from college for turkey dinner!
And even though that means MORE LAUNDRY …
it also means MORE FUN!
I am also thankful that my daughter is home
from college too, and that she knows
where the dormitory laundry room is!
I am most thankful that our family is together for Thanksgiving.
I wish all of my friends a wonderful, festive Thanksgiving Day,
and many reasons to be thankful.
