Mt. Rainier and Lenticular Clouds - Dec. 2008 copyright: JMM

November 25, 2006

Well I've finally emerged from my triptophan (trytophan?) stupor long enough to post some pictures from Thanksgiving Day. It was awesome. The weather was cold and rainy all day, which is what we pray for each year.

Here's our table; a lovely mixture of paper plates and fine crystal stemware. I scored the cornucopia flower arrangement at the Fred Meyer store where I went to do my last minute shopping on Wednesday morning. I couldn't believe my luck!
I wish that the next two photos could convey how hard it was raining, and how dark the sky really was. Rain was pouring out of our overflowing gutters.

A cozy scene in our livingroom.

I love Thanksgiving weekend and I think it's really my favourite holiday, even over Christmas. I get to live in pj pants or sweats for 5 days. But oh how I dread Monday when I have to wear pants again. And nice clothes too because my boss is taking me out to lunch for my birthday to an upscale restaurant in Tacoma called Stanley & Seaforts. I'm thinkin' I better get back to the gym before the Christmas food season is upon us!


  1. Nice pics Jo, thanks for sharing. We don't celebrate Thanksgiving, but I think I'd like it a lot :-)

  2. Have a great birthday and a great birthday lunch.

  4. I think it's probably a good thing we don't celebrate Thanksgiving.I would just eat too much :)
