Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving!

We had a wonderful, and relaxing, day yesterday – capped off by sharing a Thanksgiving feast with 16 people seated around our table (well, and three at the kiddie table).  It actually felt like a day of rest, and for an introvert like me that’s a statement when you’re surrounded by people all day.
