A Very Happy Thanksgiving

The kids’ table.

I hope all of you had a blessed day full of family and food and fun.

Holding my sweet niece, Zelie. Isn’t she a doll?

Sweet Sophie loved Auntie Carol’s chocolate mousse. (So did Ben and I!)

I was very grateful that my wonderful sister-in-law, Carol, cooked a beautiful Thanksgiving dinner. I made my favorite Brussels sprouts with bacon and a delicious pecan pie. And that was the limit of my culinary powers.

    It amuses me too. Since I’m not a native New Englander, I know most of the place names first as English place names from novels. I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned Hull as a destination since I mainly think of going to the beach there, which is Nantasket beach rather than Hull beach. Nantasket is of course a Native American name.

    Lovely. Making me crave some sea air!

    Love the light on the sea. It always amuses me to see English place names transplanted to New England. Hadn’t noticed you mention Hull before.

    I guess Beijing is pretty inland, huh?
