Happy Thanksgiving Canadian readers! US readers; yes, we have Thanksgiving in Canada. ;-)
As this weekend approached it was looking as though I would be alone this year for Turkey day. Not that I cared overly much. I can deal with the thought of not eating unparalleled amounts of turkey and mashed at Thanksgiving - Christmas however - I'm a bit of a fan of that particular holiday. It's my favorite - don't really know why. At Christmas I annually gain 2 or 3 pounds in one sitting. My family views gravy as a beverage and at Christmas - we drink a lot. lol.
Well, it appears that though my parents had initially intended to go south of the border to view a boat (you know, they intend to abandon me and sail around the world next year.... boo) but - plans have changed. They will be here and my father is going to prepare this weekends feast. I like that idea since my Dad and I - we like the wine - so I know there will be plenty. *joy* And Frank Sinatra and Norah Jones will be playing on the radio. As usual though, my family will try to tempt me with the always gross and disgusting pumpkin pie. I gag just thinking about this. I am deeply offended that someone put a vegetable in a pie and called it dessert (ah, finally I put 2 s's in dessert).
You know what would be great? If all the people that you loved could just *poof* be with you for a holiday. Regardless of where in the world they are or what they are doing - they would just appear my magic at your table. THAT would be quite an evening. I think that would easily take the place of the afore mentioned favorite holiday.
SO on I babble. My point - have a great weekend! Thanksgiving or otherwise. I'll be giving thanks this year for many things.
