Turkey Dinner



I cooked a big turkey dinner for the family yesterday and fully intended to take a photo of the table before we started to eat. What with half a dozen hungry teenagers and assorted adults milling around the table (we did it buffet style and ate out on the deck) I forgot. Instead I will show you some photos of why we like to live here in spite of the long winters. It rained in the morning so all the leaves were glistening and bright. The first photo is of a giant ant hill on a trail in the woods at the west end of our property. The second one is of the view from the front deck. The small red trees are wild plums which are covered with white flowers in the spring. We went for a walk after eating and the weather was just perfect for me - light jacket weather.

Good food, good company. That's a great combination. I agree-I love the change of seasons too. By the way, we heard it's supposed to be kind of a mild winter. We'll see.

Turkey and trimmings sound delicious.
