Nicely Quietly Enjoying Thanksgiving

Today was a quiet time.  I did have a few tough moments but I seemed to get past them by  keeping busy getting ready for Jen, Derek, Bella and Ryan's visit.

I decided not to do a turkey.  We had an Italian Thanksgiving instead.  Mozzarella and roasted tomatoes, gravy with meatballs, baked ziti, and tossed salad.

Tomorrow we will have the traditional turkey dinner at my sister and brother-in-law's house.  My brother and his wife will also be there.

Even though I felt very sad at times today, kids and grandkids are the best spirit lifter uppers.

Today certainly was not typical of past Thanksgivings.  There was no turkey and not much hustle and bustle.  But it was nice to have this quiet time by spending the day with some of my most favorite family.

Hopefully, tomorrow we can all be together with a visit to Joe and Anne's.
