the last 2 weeks ...

Leaving @ dawn

The grounds @ the Patchwork Quilt Country Inn in Middlebury.

Very accommodating hosts for my dietary restrictions!

J was thankful for flavored creamers.  Coffee wimp  :)
 Beautiful architecture in Elkhart.  This restored old theater was opulent inside and we couldn't even see the entirety of it.

Thanksgiving responsibilities this year found me only having to make mashed potatoes and green beans.  I boiled the potatoes with Rosemary, Thyme and young celery, then drained them and removed the herbs and mashed them with coconut oil and coconut milk keifer.  The 3.5 gallon pot was full when we went and had about 2 spoonfuls in the bottom when we brought it home!  I mad 2 kinds of green beans - one with bacon and one without.  Both dishes only had a spoonful left.  So happy when my food is enjoyed.
We didn't know any of the people we were going to spend the evening with.  C had been building a friendship with the host family for quite some time and they asked her if our family would like to join them.  :)

The evening ended with the sweetness of music; guitar, djembe, violin and voices.   They were all strangers when we arrived, but we left being friends.

Hope your holiday was filled with sweetness too.
