A Day Late?

Not necessarily...Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all my U.S. readers who celebrate. Yes, many of you had your big meal yesterday, but I know there are many who have family celebrations scheduled for the next several days. For various reasons, we don't all sit down to the Thanksgiving table on Thanksgiving itself.  And some do it for more than one day (mine included this year). The important thing to remember is that we all should spend time with those we love and those who love us. It doesn't matter when that is, as long as it happens. And please, please, please, don't make anyone feel guilty if they spend a holiday meal with their spouse's family. No one can be in more than one place at a time, so let's just be thankful that we see our loved ones whenever possible. I have been very fortunate that both my family and my husband's family don't feel that they "own" us for a holiday. We consider any family gathering to be a holiday, no matter the date.

And Happy Hanukkah to my readers who celebrate the Festival of Lights!

(The turkey chair in the photo was in the window of a wonderful quilt shop in Hammondsport, NY -- Lake Country Patchwork -- alas, it's closing soon after 18 years in business).
