Aside from the fact that Middle Sister wasn't able to join us and Baby Sis got a speeding ticket on the way, Thanksgiving was just about perfect. It was absolutely wonderful having Son back home again. He's loving college life and it seems to be agreeing with him.

My mother made a feast fit for royalty that included turkey, salmon (for recently-turned- vegetarian-but-will-still-eat-seafood Daughter), kale salad, collard greens, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, stuffing, corn pudding, and I'm sorry. I simply must stop now before I race next door and raid my parents' refrigerator for leftovers.

After a wonderful dinner, we sat around and talked. Then we went next door to my house and did what everyone does on Thanksgiving: we played music. Daughter was on the drums, I was on the electric piano, and Baby Sis spent the entire night trying to tune an electric guitar. So, correction: we attempted to play music. Still, it was fun.

Anyway, it's back to UVA for Son, back to school for Daughter and back to work for me tomorrow.
I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful.
