I rarely think of our house as being small, but it seemed a little small today. We had twenty two over for Thanksgiving Dinner (lunch) and it was cozy.
The house was in pretty good shape, so this morning over coffee Jilda and I plotted out what each of us would to to make ready for our guests.
It was touch and go for a while due to s bout of dizziness that hit Jilda but she's a trooper.
I called our niece Jayna who is also a cook extraordinaire. She was on the guest, but I picked her up a little earlier so she could help with last minute cooking. Things were fine when people started arriving.
It was a remarkable afternoon. People lingered to laugh and talk.
I'm thankful for this day and I feel truly blessed to have such remarkable friends and family.
I hope you all had a day to remember.

  3. I love large family get togethers like that. Sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Rick. I am thankful for your blog!

  4. It is funny how the size of our house seems smaller when we have family over.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  5. Hello Rick...You and Jilda have a lovely and unique door! Love it!

    I trust your Thanksgiving was memorablle as was ours here in chilly New England. The best to you. Susan

  6. How truly wonderful, Rick! I know it was a blessed time! Again, a wonderful photo. How do you do it?

    1. Hey Susan, there is a oil painting filter on Photoshop and I manipulate that filter to get the painting effect. I love.
