Final week of the Joy Diet- Feasting.

Last year this time, I was in sunny New Mexico with my daughter and her family. Chili peppers were a part of the visual feast that I enjoyed. What a colorful area of our country!

This year I was treated with an early morning phone call from Amber on Thanksgiving :) Thus the feasting began.

Next a scrabble game with my brother and his wife. She would want me to tell you how she wiped us out! I cooked the turkey the day before so I could enjoy a leisurely morning.

Dinner went without a hitch. My mother even told me that my stuffing was almost as good as hers!

We got an evening phone call from our 6 year old granddaughter. She was giggling and telling us all about her Thanksgiving when I heard her dad in the background saying, "Who are you talking to?" We had a great laugh over this. She was at her other grammy's house and decided to call us-long distance. :)

We, then, called to see how our grandson was feeling. His fever had broken at noon. (See previous post) So glad.

Our evening was topped off by a great chat with our 13 year old granddaughter in NM. After this we watched a movie and went to bed.

I had a feast of smiles throughout the day.

It sounds like a wonderful Thanksgiving. It is so special when we can hear the voices of our loved ones when we cannot share the day in person.
