The Aftermath

Today is dark and drizzly but thankfully the snow is gone.  My Collegeboy had to drive back over the mountains today in a snowstorm, but he had chains, said it really wasn't too bad, and made it safely.  When I was up in the middle of the night and saw the pass was closed eastbound, I wasn't so happy.  Only a couple more trips for him and then he'll be done over there.

We had a lovely and lively Thanksgiving.  Fifteen people plus one small dog can make a lot of noise!  The food was all good; I've definitely perfected my techniques and recipes by now.  We've come a long way from the first Thanksgiving dinner I had to cook 15 years ago.  No one complained, but the food left a lot to be desired.

A few photos; it seems I never get exactly the ones I want, but it's nice to have some.  They seem to all be in the kitchen, since that's where everyone tends to congregate until I kick them out from the area behind the stove.

I hope your day was peaceful and happy and today you're resting, knitting, spinning, and/or shopping!
