monday



After a bit of fumbling I finished the squirrel favors the night before Thanksgiving and filled them with dark chocolate truffles. I was thankful that my brother was here for dinner with us. The turkey and dressing came out great, the homemade dinner rolls were fresh from the oven, and we ended with pumpkin and apple pies with whipped cream.

We have been enjoying sunshine and temperatures up to 60 degrees, very different from the snow we had last Thanksgiving. I spent Sunday taking a long walk outside and gathering some pinecones, rosehips, etc. for making some decorations. I also need to gather greens for making my Advent wreath for next Sunday...this weather will not last much longer.

  2. Your table looks so pretty Debbie. I've saved the squirrel pattern for another year. I might make one just for my autumn piano top display as for now our Thanksgiving is always hosted at my husband's sister's house. We are a large group and she and her husband have a much larger home that works best...plus my brother in law loves to cook.
    Our snow is almost gone already...but maybe we will get a little more.
    Enjoy your gathering walk!

    The table looks great Debbie, and the squirrels too came out lovely. I wanted to try those too but time got away from me:-)No snow here in MA yet- quite sunny and warm.

  7. What a beautiful table! We, too, had incredibly warm weather this year. Last Thanksgiving eve, we had a blizzard roll in, and our children came and spent the night, as we were certain the roads would be difficult in the morning. What a change this year! I do believe we were near 60 also!
