Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to everybody who celebrates! The annual cook-a-thon has come and gone, and we are still not hungry a day later. Not in the picture: Mount Aetna, the amazing exploding apple pie. I made it, it exploded. All is as it should be.


Also not in the picture above: Merlin, trying to figure out if there's any chance the humans won't notice if he sneaks up on the stuffing. Or the buttermilk mashed potatoes. He really seemed... interested in those.


In spite of the tough economy, there is much to be grateful for this year. We have a place to live. We have jobs. We have food. We have cats. We have family and friends, though they can't be with us for the holidays. Still, that's a lot of Good Stuff.

that looks delicious! We made one mistake this year. We went elsewhere for Thanksgiving, and so have no leftovers. :( So tomorrow we are making our own little dinner for 4 because dammit, I need leftovers! :)

I am full all over again looking at your pictures!

And thanks for the kind words about the Queen Susan shawl. We are having a good time with it, and The Knitter magazine will be doing a story on the project!
