Home From The Holidays

We flew to California for Thanksgiving.  Normally we go to our daughter's for the holiday, but now that she's moved to Japan that's not possible.  So Mac's brother and his wife kindly took us in.  My sister-in-law L is an amazing cook, she fixed the traditional turkey, made a great new dressing, a cranberry relish that even Mac who doesn't like cranberries liked, and numerous other dishes.  Then she fixed a pumpkin pie cake, so rich and delicious I could feel arteries clogging as I ate, my gosh it was good.  In the mornings there was fresh fruit, quiche, pumpkin cinnamon rolls,   I will not be weighing myself for at least a week.
The day after Thanksgiving we met up with more of Mac's family for Italian food, this included his wonderful cousin Isabel, who in her 80's is getting ready to fly off to Rio de Janeiro, Argentina to go on a cruise through the Straits of Magellan to Chile, she is amazing.
Two of the cousins have booked a cruise to the Caribbean for 2015 and the other two are doing the same in 2016----we are a traveling family.
The next night my sister-in-law served up a ton of Dungeness Crab and a Caesar Salad---see why I'm not weighing myself.
We flew back Sunday night/Monday morning.  The flight was delayed and left at nearly 1:30 in the morning.  Couldn't sleep and got home very tired.  Feel much better now and we're already talking about our next trip---the Everglades again.
Hope your Thanksgiving was satisfying too.  Even better the temperature is in the 70's.
My Wonderful Brother-in-law and Sister-in-law had a Lincoln Towncar Service pick up at the airport.  Felt very post!!!
