It was a quiet Thanksgiving this year (pictures) - Chris and I are in Pennsylvania visiting Mom & Dad, and it's just the four of us. Dinner was good - turkey, stuffing (both in-the-bird, and the sausage stuffing I made a couple of days ago and brought with us), sweet potatoes, broccoli, salad, rolls, and of course gravy - followed by very delicious pumpkin pie with whipped cream and tea. I baked cookies earlier this evening, but although they were good, I over baked them a slight bit. Mom and I went for a walk around the block; the weather was just amazing, a really good autumn day: Warm and sunny, but also comfortably cool and breezy; the leaves were in their glory, all golds and reds, and the earth smelled, well, earthy, slightly damp but like fall. I looked out the window at one point during a breezy blast and saw that the air was just full of yellow leaves. It was really such a stereotypical autumn day like I'm not sure I've seen before. We heard from Justin within minutes of having finished our pie; he was on his own this year but was taking advantage of having his apartment to himself - apparently he spent all day cleaning his carpets and they were a sight to behold.
