Grandma's Dishes

I went to the grocery store this morning, and the minute I walked over by the produce department, I realized that I had forgotten to take my camera - and it did look especially spiffy today. In yesterday's post I mentioned that I might take my camera and give you a run-down of my grocery shopping. There was NO one else in the produce department - no one to think I was crazy, and it would have been so much more colorful than the picture here of my grandma's china. I did get to the store pretty early, but when you live in a small town where everyone knows everyone else, there is always someone to stop and talk to - "What are you doing for Thanksgiving" "Are your kids coming home?" "What do you think of the horrible mess the whole world is in?" Okay, we can save that topic for after the New Year.

I tried to work on a few little paintings, but unfortunately, I am one of those people that can only think about one thing at a time, so until Thanksgiving is over, nothing else will get done. We aren't having a big crowd, so it shouldn't be such a big deal, but I love Thanksgiving, so I have to give it the proper attention. And speaking of attention, I have the turkey thawing in the fridge - I have been known to forget it. With age and experience, I have refined my list making.

What a lovely table! Those dishes are just made for Thanksgiving! I especially love the individual salt and pepper - fancy!
