as a couple of my blog buddies call it. gearing up for a quiet turkey day. in fact, turk might get cooked today- or tomorrow morning. sister has to work part of the day- so not a big festival. that's ok. it's that kind of year where i don't think celebrating is in order. quiet reflection and just enjoying folks' company is the way i feel this year. so- out and about for a bit and to the fam's and then- cooking. having a second cuppa now.
