We give thanks
‘For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food
For love and friends,
For everything thy goodness sends.’
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Those gathered around the table were small in number, but a happy group we were. My napkins made for the Holiday Boutique (local charities benefitting) sold well enough, but I did buy back a set for myself and they added some homespun charm inside the ancestral silver napkin rings.

The moment the turkey has been put away, we barely wait a moment and the Christmas lights go up outside. Today was a sunny and mild day – perfect for festooning the boxwood with twinkling lights. I know busy people hire out to have this done, but for us it is a family affair. The dogs run around and enjoy the lively conversation, and by the end of the day, all are exhausted and so very thankful! Happy Thanksgiving to all!
