Retro Turkey Day
In years past we've spent the day at friend's houses or we've had some friends over to ours. This year, it was just Steven, Taylor and myself. It was so nice and low key.
I also used my mom's silver . Although, I can't remember if it's silver, or silver plate. Either way, my mom had it for years, and now it's mine. All the pieces have a cursive "J" on them for Jamieson. I'm pleased that they still go with JuJu. And man, the knives are L O N G.
So, we had the traditional fare, and we ate it on Grandma's china, scooped it up with Mom's utensils, and we all sat down to eat at Grandma's Pseudo Table. When I made my annual Party Mix, I stored it in Grandma's yellow tupperware bowl. The family was represented!
Granted, I would have much rather had them all here with me. (for one, the food would have been much better!) But, since they were spending the holiday (and all holidays) in Heaven, it was just nice to have them here via the china, the forks and the tupperware. For that, I was really really thankful.
And now, it's on to Christmas people. Twenty Eight Shopping Days. Ugh.
