For those outside the U.S. who've already had Thanksgiving or weren't planning to anyway, sorry some of the regular noise will be very still until tomorrow. Today is pretty much turkey, football and nap here.
Melissa and everybody, I hope there are many smiles and hugs!
We're having our third day of Thanksgiving food around here. Usually Gary's only home Weds, so I planned the meal -- Hawaiian food for us this year -- for Weds. I cooked all day Tuesday, and we had some early kalua pork on Tuesday. YUM! Then yesterday, we had the whole dinner (sadly, tho, no poi). Late yesterday, we got word Gary doesn't need to head back out on the road until tomorrow noon, so we have a bonus day together. And still LOTS of Kalua Pork and Chicken Long Rice, tho we are running low on pumpkin pie and I had to get out today for more ice cream.
Now there's freezing rain outside and, because we live in Albuquerque, the boys are outside in the sleet/rain. With water guns, even! Here in the desert all rain is celebrated!
And no extended family for us -- we had a couple of phone calls with Gary's folks who are hosting a 24 guest Thanksgiving dinner, but no need to dress up or answer 20 questions or drive anywhere. My favorite way to spend any holiday!
