My long Thanksgiving weekend had begun, and I am very excited about it. The charity event the club I advise at school ran on Monday evening and went off without any hitches, plus for the last 2 days I've had no voice with a good case of laryngitis. I am glad for a down day at home to recoup and relax. Tomorrow we travel over to Maine to have our traditional turkey dinner with my husband's family.
Yum. I love Thanksgiving because for me it is a pretty low key holiday.
Last night I watched a show on PBS about the Pilgrims and the whole history of why we celebrate Thanksgiving here in the US. Growing up in Massachusetts (where the Pilgrims landed and settled in 1620) and living in various parts New England all my life, this history of the Pilgrims is sometimes a little idolized, but what I liked about this show was that it taught me a lot about the complete story of that settlement and those people. If you are interested it was the American Experience-the Pilgrims. I recommend the show.
Not sure what I am going to do today, but hopefully take a walk and squeeze in some more studio cleaning or even a tad bit of art time. I might bake something yummy to bring with us tomorrow. Or maybe even go out and do a bit of Christmas shopping That's what my daughter wants me to do with her.
It all sounds like fun.
Speaking of my daughter, she was inspired to make a alcohol and gelatin turkey for our dinner Thursday. She made a sample on Sunday evening with cranberry flavored vodka, cranberry juice and unflavored gelatin.
Cranberries just go so well turkey, as many of you probably know.
It tasted pretty good. (We had to sample it before we served it to everyone on the holiday). She and I made another one for Thursday last night, and this time we added a bit of orange juice to it also.
Not sure if I'll be posting in the next few days, so I am going to wish you all a great rest to your week and of course Happy Thanksgiving (for those of you who celebrate).
See you soon.
