Dave the chef, Lee, cook and hostess, Gay who cooks and helps me, Mary who made delightful desserts and Lyn who has always been so dear and so good to me, especially after Barry's death.
Both Lee and Lyn, my sister June's daughters, are in Real Estate. Dave is a young retiree and so is Mary. I enjoyed hugging them all on Thanksgiving. Missing in the photo are Lee and Dave's son, Will, and his girlfriend, Abbie. They were present, but not available for the photo.
|Three I love: Lee, Gay and Lyn. |
Lee and Dave had a table loaded with so much food. Sadly, we tried to eat it all, but still had leftovers to take home. Tonight, I ate a turkey sandwich sent to me from the home of Stu's brother, Doug and his wife, Mary. Stu was in Chicago for Thanksgiving day to be with his brother.
As usual, we told stories and laughed our heads off. With a pandemic still ongoing, and memories of 2020 hanging heavy over all of us, it was fabulous to be with loved ones, to hug them, and know they were doing all possible to be sure each of us was safe.
Well, I think there is some banana pudding left in the fridge. I had better go see about that. Gay uses Mothers' recipe and it turns out beautiful to see and delicious to eat.
If you are shopping for Christmas gifts, don't forget books. They make wonderful gifts.
