|Our Thanksgiving table that just evolved as |
I was going along. We had eight family
members for dinner. We did have a wonderful time.
|My mother-in-law relaxing for a few minutes. On Saturday after Thanksgiving|
she celebrated her 89th birthday. We were very happy to have her visit.
|Later I realized I didn't make photos of everyone. To be honest, we were|
a little tired ... even Canyon, resting his head with elbow on table while eating.
My daughter fell earlier in the evening at her house,
down stairs. She is okay but still sore.
|We did have our favorite chocolate pie. This is an older photo of the pie,|
I did not make the chocolate monograms this year. It was the first time
for some of my family to eat it ... they loved it!
|While gathering up things for the dining room table, I found an old |
yard sale find from last year. I had forgotten about this old silverplate.
It is not 95 years old, it is from 1951.
|For fun I looked it up, it is called Prestige and I added up the cost of|
individual replacements and it came to $534.00. Not bad for $10.
It was in excellent condition.

|We took Clint's mom back to Atlanta and had dinner with her on Saturday night.|
This little signature salad where she lives is one of my favorites.
|We left the Atlanta area Sunday morning around 10 AM with what appeared to be fair weather.|

|Yes, slightly overcast ... good for driving ... or so we thought ....|
|Clint called my attention to this "jalopy" that was passing us on the left ...|
The skies are getting darker ... rain is beginning to fall.
|Once again we are driving on trecherous roads, heavy from|
the Thanksgiving traffic. This pile on 75 N was about 20 minutes
after the "jalopy" had passed us on the left. It was at the front
of the pile up and I had wondered if it was at fault somehow.
|We have had enough driving through heavy downpours and traffic!|
This scene was the same all the way from north Atlanta to Knoxville.
On a brighter note, we have a big night planned this evening. We are going to a Gaither Christmas Homecoming in Knoxville. Do I ever have the work to do to get myself ready! I am looking foward to meeting some of the singers.
Thank you, each and every one of you that took the time to read this post! ♥
