I just left the kitchen where we've spent most of the day preparing an abundance of side-dishes for our Thanksgiving feast tomorrow. Grace (bless her heart), was still standing at the sink peeling the last of a ten pound sack of potatoes when I ducked out to give my feet a rest. We'll leave the spuds to soak in cold water, and throw them in the pressure cooker later (in batches) for the best mashed potatoes ever. I made this flower arrangement out of a pumpkin. I bought a small bouquet of flowers from the market and filled in with clippings from my own backyard. The varigated sage and artemisia added a nice touch. I was quite pleased with it!
