Every Day Is Thanksgiving Day Around Here…

…although meals are usually simpler.  This afternoon my David is brining the turkey for tomorrow’s feast and the roommate’s dog is trying to help.  The dog is a boxer mix so he thinks being underfoot is helping.  He’s poetry in action – just ask him!

David is a wonderful cook.  I taught him to bake bread in my mother’s kitchen when we were children and he has far surpassed me in the culinary arts since.  I couldn’t be happier!  He and the roommies have big plans for the dinner tomorrow.  My task is to rest, comment, and provide music.  (Sadly, we don’t have any friends visiting for the holiday so no fiddlers-in-the-kitchen this year.)  I am without a settled mood today and don’t know what I really feel like hearing.  I guess I’ll start with tradition and play Silly Wizard.  That is what our daughter would have insisted on before she married and set up her own household.  Silly Wizard for cooking with Planxty afterward.   It still feels odd to not be working alongside David in the kitchen before a holiday but I can fill the house with music and candles – atmosphere – while he works.  That was always my forte anyway.  The special part that only I knew how to bring together at the end.  Anyway, no one but I know where the good linens are stored…bwahahaaaaa……
Tomorrow will be the easy choice for music,  David will play piano.  I never get enough of that.

Wife and mother, Retired musician, etc, etc.... My favorite word is "Gemütlichkeit". -->-->-- "The word "Gemütlichkeit" is an old word that has lost much of its meaning over the years. If you ask a very old German about its meaning it is to them a most beloved word. It once meant fellowship, hospitality, warmth, welcoming, and a feeling that no-one is a stranger. Today it means cozy comfort.

    It sounds very nice, my gentle friend. I hope the whole household has a wonderful time. We will have Elena’s family here again. It seems to be the tradition now.

  3. I am so happy to see you here, Gentle Mac, thank you for visiting! I trust you and Elena will have a lovely day tomorrow, too. You know ours will be grand although we will be missing the fiddler in the kitchen this year and that feels so strange.

    Will you be getting up to any mischief tomorrow, my friend, or are you going to pretend to be the sedate elder statesman until you can escape to your study for some whisky and chocolate? Please give my warmest regards to Elena and take a moment to raise a glass together tomorrow as we will be toasting you two from here.

    Distance is nothing…your comfy chair remains here.

    Well, sedate and elder probably cover it. There will be Scotch, or Brandy. We will be thinking of you and yours. My best wishes to you all.
