A Little More Thanksgiving

Gentle Friends, after the long weekend and a fun Holiday I came back to a pile at work.  But, I wanted to share some snaps...

... after I set the table for Thanksgiving dinner... then I noticed... no napkins... they were still on the ironing board...but made it to the table before we sat down...

...we made a run the SF Flower Market Wednesday morning so that Rico could make the centrepiece... it was a great Thanksgiving my sister and brother-in-law drove down from Vancouver for the weekend and we some friends over so it was a full house and a tasty meal if I do say so myself!!

On Friday we headed south to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and a private tour with of friend who is a Red Coat Docent there...  I love this bird !!

... it was a really lovely day as this snap of Monterey Bay illustrates...

... we walked all over the place and of course visited the jellies...  
these I am sure are called Black Sea Nettle jellies...

... isn't this a great starfish!!

... I love the shorebird exhibit, it's so nice to see them up close ...

... isn't this sandpiper a cutie!!

It was a super weekend!!  Now, as we jump headfirst into the Season.... it seems that every weekend we're booked up and haven't a moment to spare!!  I've started some baking and have our Cards on order and we're getting the house all bedecked for Christmas!!

That about does it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again!!

Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!


  1. Your Thanksgiving Table is so lovely!
    The photos from the aquarium are awesome.

  3. You always set the nicest Thanksgiving table, you and Rico. That aquarium is on my bucket list by the way! Hoping you will have pictures of your friends gorgeous Christmas tree and their home on your blog soon:) It has become a tradition, you know!

  4. Rico's arrangement is gorgeous! I really like the ship plates as well. When I see those I tend to think of the Jamestown ships and the Mayflower. Perfect for Thanksgiving.
    Have a great Christmas season.
