    I guess so. Just kidding as all I have to do is drive my wife to her brother’s house and eat.

    Hahaha…enjoy Gil!

  2. These photos are beautiful.

    I’m working this Thanksgiving. Which is fine. I’ll get my turkey on some other time. 🙂

    Totally ready for Thanksgiving, I’m on duty for dessert at my in-laws which is my favorite part of any meal!

    Yay! I love dessert too 🙂

  6. yes and no! ready to eat, but still haven’t gotten all the ingredients for my contribution…cornbread and pecan pie. The pecans were shipped in from Louisiana (thanks mom 🙂 ) but tomorrow I pray the stores won’t be empty for the rest!

    Those are lovely. I especially like the old barrel.

    I’ll be ready for Thanksgiving as soon as I commit to how many different kinds of potatoes we’re having.

    I vote for at least three.

    Thanks for sharing the pix, Michelle 🙂 They’re delightful, my fave are the blossoms. As for Turkey day, I’m getting there! I think I’ll take a dessert of some sort to my bro’s. Happy Thanksgiving! Do you have a traditional Thanksgiving meal?

    Well I’m in the States this year for Turkey Day, Awedree, so yes! In Italy, sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t–it’s really just another Thursday there.
