Thanksgiving Night

It is 9 p.m. and my guests have been gone for an hour, and the dishwasher is running. Everything has been put away and equal amounts of food sent home with the other. I have enough in my container to eat two meals. Now I am sitting here with a cup of lemon ginger tea with a spoonful of honey. It's a nice ending to a good, but tiring day. (I was up at 7 a.m. with only four hours of sleep last night.) I can barely keep my eyes open so I am going to blow out all the candles and call it a night. Take care and I hope you had a good Thanksgiving Day (for those who celebrate). Picture is my own.

I took two Tylenol PM and ended up getting about 8 hours sleep. Thank you. Hope you had a great day yesterday.

@CoralLevang I did for the most part. I got a migraine by the time dinner was served, so that made it less enjoyable. But fortunately it went away once we got home and I laid down for a bit.

Sounds like a great day! My usual night cap is whisky but those night caps are few and far in between nowadays.

I did, thanks. Yesterday was fun and pleasant. Had been awhile since I'd cooked such a full meal. I slept with the help of Tylenol PM. Are you getting ready for the winter holidays?

@CoralLevang We slowly are. I got a few ornaments the other day, and we're slowly talking about gifts and such.

I am glad you spent a nice Thanksgiving day. I am pretty stressed and tired due the back and forth from Italy. I should have a more relaxed day tomorrow.

I can understand what you are going through with your Mother, and the traveling. Six years ago, I was traveling from Washington to California on Thursdays or Fridays to help with my mother. She was pretty sick then. I would fly back on Mondays. Thanksgiving was pleasant and quiet. Thank you. Rest well today.

@CoralLevang Tomorrow I will stay at home, my brother does not work and he will stay with her all the afternoon (the mornings visits are not allowed). On Sunday my niece told me to rest that she will go there. I can relax a bit.

Sounds like you had a lovely time with your guests. Preparing a large meal is tiring. Although you enjoy doing it and having guests over, you are even more glad when it is over.

It wasn't TOO big. Enough for us all and to take enough of a container home for a large meal or two smaller, minus the protein. LOL

I'm feeling draggy today. I think I'm going to try to get a nap. Did you have a good Turkey Day?

When I went to Sweden in 2006/7, I went to an art gallery featuring a pottery artist who would make ceramic baskets/bowls using this beautiful lacy flower pattern. I could not afford them, but she also had these "seconds" pieces that she also sold for far less. I bought these pieces from her. I think I paid about 375kr ($45-50) for these.

Lovely photo. I love candlelight. Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. I was just expressing some dislike here in Latvia. I would love it if they adopted the nice holiday of Thanksgiving but instead they have adopted the craziness and pandemonium of Black Friday. I refuse to get involved and will not go to any stores but I might see what deals they have online today. Hope you have a great Friday.

Thanks, Rasma. Ugh. Black Friday. It's 7 a.m. and I don't dare go outside this morning. LOL
