Our younger daughter made it home safely last night for her Thanksgiving break, so now the gang's all here. The girls and I spent the morning shopping: new coats, shoes, and Christmas gifts for their friends at college. While they both studied the afternoon away, I made the dressing and cooked the sweet potatoes for tomorrow. I'm saving the turkey, gravy, and squash casserole to cook in the morning. When I was growing up, my mother did all the cooking ahead of time, so on Thanksgiving morning it was a matter of thawing and reheating. To me, though, part of Thanksgiving is smelling the turkey roasting, the gravy simmering, etc. So our house will be filled will wonderful aromas tomorrow.
This year I'm thankful for my wonderful husband, my two smart and beautiful daughters, and our parents. I'm thankful for quilting and my wonderful quilting friends. I'm thankful for our doggies, who make us laugh every day. Happy Thanksgiving.
