a get together
Tuesday already? How can that be?
My friend Lesley stayed with us this weekend while she attended a nearby show. She'd mentioned Friday how she tried to connect the year before with Hope. With very little notice at all, Hope hopped over Saturday night for dinner at Whole Foods, followed by dessert at my house. We talked and talked and talked. It was very therapeutic and honest and nice.

This morning I have to get a few orders out, finish up some projects, and then prepare for Thanksgiving. The last count was just under 20, most of them wee folks. I'm going to brine the turkey and I feel the need to review a few things such as timing.
I also need to move the tables in place and set them. I think we'll be able to seat everyone with just the dining table and kitchen table, both with all the available leaves to extend them fully.
Oh, and I haven't gone grocery shopping yet. I know...I'm crazy. Truly I think it's a matter of being in denial.
