(Cue the music, below!)
Our Thanksgiving day was spent with friends Kate, Mike and Barb. It was quite a feast!
Kate was a wonderful hostess...
...her co-host, Zeke, was most agreeable!
And there was the obligatory tryptophan coma!
Greg arrived on Friday. It was the first time we'd seen him in months. He's back in Northern Michigan now after some months in L.A. and it was so good to catch up! Our time together included games of Sequence and seeing the wonderful film, "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood."
(Let me say, I think this is both a wonderful and important movie. And it is especially good to see with members of your family. The discussions after can be so valuable and meaningful. It was the perfect Thanksgiving weekend activity.)
Later that night we welcomed Rick's friends and musical partners, Byron and Josh, for dinner. Then they performed the "concert" they are preparing for a gig at a senior home soon. They were really quite good and much improved since the last time I heard them. These guys are practicing!
While they were playing, Greg helped me string cranberries to leave outside for the birds this winter.
When all was said and done, we have a bowl full of garland.
And now, we're just waiting for this guy to return!
(Probably this one, too!)
I leave you with a photo that makes me smile. Rick doing something he loves.
How's your holiday planning going?
