A Family Feast

I hope you all had very happy Thanksgivings yesterday! We had a lovely and surprisingly relaxing day. I cooked up a storm, but it was quite calm since there were only 5 of us for dinner.

Thad’s parents are down from Montana for the weekend, but we spent yesterday with my mother as well at her home in Boulder. We took a mid-day stroll through quiet streets to break up the cooking and then ended the night with pie by the fire.

My brother and his wife popped by for a quick visit after a little hike.

We had a huge feast with too much food, of course, but we will be joyfully eating leftovers for the next few days. My mother made a turkey (very little of which was actually consumed) but the rest of our dinner was vegetarian and fully decadent, starting with some gorgeous cheeses from my brother’s shop, Cured.

I made a centerpiece for my mother’s table and a rose design for her living room.

Artemis enjoyed the holiday and the excess of lap sitting that it provided.

All in all, a delicious, peaceful and beautiful day shared gratefully with family.
