The Table is Set


The table is set for tomorrow's Thanksgiving mid-day meal, and I will be off shortly to the grocery store and farmer's market to gather provisions. I'll be blogging-while-cooking tomorrow, with short, on-the-fly posts as I've done in some past years. And, as always, I will start my day before dawn with my own personal tradition:  strong coffee and pecan pie. There's just no telling what a sugar-fuelled, fully-caffeinated woman might do.

My heart is full and so grateful to all of you, my virtual companions. You enliven, enlighten, and encourage me all year long. Thank you!

  1. I love it! You and I are kindred spirits. I must do whatever I can ahead of time as you obviously have done with your table.
    Your table is lovely and the chair covers are especially awesome. What a great way to make the occasion even more special!
    Have a very, very Happy Thanksgiving!


  2. “…[S]ugar-fueled, fully caffeinated…” That must be something to see, especially since your “regular” nickname is “Twitchy Baby!” Your table is lovely. Wish I was there.


  3. What a gorgeous tapestry of a table! I love all the color and contrast with the white pottery. I’ll be watching with what you are preparing with interest what you prepare as your Southern feast versus what I am making up here.
    As always, enjoy with love and abandon!


  4. Beautiful, Beth. I’ll try to keep up with your posts tomorrow, as I’d like to “see” what happens at your house. Enjoy your pie and coffee in the morn – what a lovely tradition. I’m so glad our paths have crossed – something else to add to what I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving.


  5. Wish you were here, too. (And not just for all the entertaining stories you could tell us about your trips to Tibet, China, the Grand Canyon, et al this year not to mention life in your own backyard there in Moose Pass, Alaska.) By the way, what are you going to do for an encore in 2011?


  6. Thank you, Loretta. I will definitely enjoy “with love abandon” — following your joyful example. Anyone reading this comment who isn’t familiar with Pomegranates and Paper, Loretta’s blog (and so much more), go now. Give it as a gift to yourself.


  7. Thank you so much, Beth. I am so glad, too. Anyone who suggests that serious, stunning creative nonfiction writing cannot be found on the internet or, more particularly, in a personal blog, has not read yours. You inspire me. (And p.s., the coffee and pecan pie was just as good as I thought it would be.)


Thanks for stopping by. What are you writing about today?
