(spanish moss from Silke and my wooden flowers from the Tulip Poplar)
And neither of us have missed it a bit.
And with the economy in our area, we also have a very real sense of what *enough* is, and how much more it is than many can enjoy.
It is the quality of sitting in our country home, in the peace and quiet, taking time before the meal for silent thanks~~for so much~~to remember those who have less, and ask for guidance on how we can be part of an instrument of help.
Still though, simple as it was, I feel like an over-plump piggie this morning because I just over did it, period. (I cannot resist pie.....)
Things we love; Cajun roast duck, crawfish stuffing, a huge pot of fresh greens seasoned with excellent bacon, cranberry chutney and fresh peach pie. Add a bottle of Eiswein to the mix and a couple of candles, my favorite grey and blue German pitcher that had been mothers, my grandmothers dishes and a good time was had by both of us.
Today I refuse to leave the house. It is back to the studio and work time~~I take no part in the ridiculous madness called Black Friday. I prefer the beautiful sunny Friday right here at Casa Lockard! The birds singing, the leisure of sleeping in a bit and then slowly easing myself back into a work mode.
And maybe a bit of exercise, to make that duck run away!
Of course, there is still pie in the fridge....
Hope your day was exceedingly blessed and wonderful!
