The pumpkin pie is done and so is the rhubarb strawberry crisp. Soon I will start chopping onions and celery for the stuffing. The bird is thawed and, for non-traditionalists, there's a ham in the fridge as well.
Tomorrow, I will clean and set up and get down my mother-in-law's china - which is now mine.
And family and friends will gather. We will eat and chat and laugh and maybe even quarrel, but I hope not.
Snow has been falling all morning. I feel warm, full, and grateful.
Happy Thanksgiving, today and every day.
