On Monday, temperatures here soared to nearly 70°F. My rose garden (above) looked serene in its autumn greenery. This mild color scheme was not to last. The garden turned all-white when a nor’easter roared through my region (and maybe yours, too) just 48 hours later:
Would you like to see that again?
Now, I had planned to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving on Wednesday evening. But as I was typing, the internet suddenly failed. We lost telephone and cable service, too.
Consequently, I lit a fire in the bedroom. There, while Will played “Words with Friends” on his cell phone, I tucked into John Lahr’s brilliant biography of Tennessee Williams. Naturally, we were promptly joined by Lily the Beagle and cats Tiger and Camille. They, too, enjoy
a good book a warm fire.
Our friends Robert and David, who mercifully live up the street, hosted Thanksgiving Dinner on Thursday evening. And what a fabulous feast they produced! I drank too much wine, and ate too much turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. In other words, I did what I always do on Thanksgiving.
How was your own holiday? Did you cook? Did you fight with your relatives? Or did you have no holiday at all, because your travel plans were upset by the nor’easter? I look forward to hearing from you in the comments field below.
