Weekend Edition: Thanksgiving Weekend

We had a lovely Thanksgiving despite the cold.  It should be cold on Thanksgiving, right?  It's late November after all!  We celebrate Thanksgiving most years with a large group of family friends, all of whom are excellent cooks.  The day is spent in an idyllic New Mexico location, and always includes a hike before dinner.  Can't get any better than that!  No photos because sometimes its nice to just live life, not document it for others.

Meanwhile with the extra long weekend I did fairly typical things.

I read an actual letter from a friend.  Visited a local nursery and brought home a beautiful gardenia that has been perfuming my kitchen and fooling me into believing that I'm in the tropics.  (Tried a ridiculous number of times to capture a photo that was in focus, and could not do it.)  Baked the third week's worth of sourdough bread.  Many other completely non-photogenic things as well, like mowing the lawn for an hour until the gas ran out in the mower and it could be cleaned and stored for the winter, and obsessing over really great furniture deals on ebay that I couldn't partake in because they were all local pick-up only in locations that I can't easily get to.  Sigh.

  1. That bread looks amazing!

    Glad to hear that the letter arrived (and quite quickly!) Told you it would be full of non-newsworthy drivel...
