Everything is just about ready for our Thanksgiving feast this evening.
Potatoes, parsnips, carrots, turnips, beets ~ all from our own garden.
Peas with mint, corn niblets, home-made cranberry sauce, mustard pickles and pickled beets
A nice plump chicken from the farm down the road ~ ready to be stuffed with my mom’s delicious dressing, well-seasoned with summer savoury.
Pies for dessert ~ pumpkin, lemon meringue and a new one this year:
While I am work, I’m listening to a wonderful sound-track for Thanksgiving: Robin Mark’s Year of Grace.
(Don’t forget to pause the music on the sidebar when you listen)
It’s hard to decide which song is my favourite.
“One Day” makes my spirit soar, fills my heart with praise,
and sets my feet dancing. (good thing I’m alone in the kitchen eh? 🙂
“All Is Well” is a song that offers hope and courage with this timeless truth:
“Whatever is His way, all is well.”
It’s glorious outside. The rain has stopped and the sky is bright blue with racing, ragged clouds.
The trees are a symphony of colour and the air is like an autumn tonic, crisp and clear.
Later, while the chicken is roasting, I hope to take a walk down this road.
Then as evening draws in, I’ll light the candles and look for the car lights to swing into the driveway.
My table will be almost full tonight – oldest and youngest are away.
We’ll be thinking of them and wishing they were here.
Hope you have a blessed and happy day filled with thanksgiving ~ whether you are north or south of the border ~ or across the pond. 🙂
