A Small Foray

Posted by Picasa

For a brief time today I escaped the confines of the office and did a little trail scouting for a hike I am leading tomorrow. It was glorious! Blue, blue skies and milder temps made for a perfect day. Hope you had an equally awesome Tuesday.

Currently I am stuffed to the gills with some most excellent Vietnamese food - courtesy of SIL. She visited our favorite Vietnamese restaurant before she left Charlotte this morning. Such a considerate sister-in-law. Plus she came bearing gifts from the city, including a bottle of my favorite brandy! Two of the gifts came from one of our nieces. I will take a picture of them and post that tomorrow. She made one especially for Treebeard and one especially for me. Such a sweet niece!

The offspring will be coming in tomorrow, Hippie is coming in from Wilmington and Flamebrain is heading in from Raleigh. I have to work all day so there will be a cooking prep frenzy when I get home. Got to have everything ready for Thanksgiving dinner for my "babies." ;)

Sounds like you had a very good day. Mostly boring on this end except for the end when I got to see Bloggy Jr...who says to make sure I tell you "Hi!"

Have a great Thanksgiving in your new house.

Happy Thanksgiving, Swampy. I'll try to stay out of your way.

(Hippie and Flamebrain? Have I not been paying attention or is this the first time you've mentioned these two?)

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. :)

Tell Jr. I said Hi! right back at him.

My Thanksgiving was excellent - hope yours was excellent, too.

Hope the capon was tasty and your day was happy.

Thanks, it was a good one. A little odd cooking in the new kitchen though ;)

Hippie is son number one and Flamebrain is son number two. I have mentioned them from time to time, but not on a regular basis. Everyone had the good manners to stay out of my way in the kitchen - Treebeard acted as my sous chef and everything went fairly smoothly :)

Hope you had a wonderful one, too!
