November, December

The holiday season is flying by! Our time in Massachusetts was great, as always. We were lucky to make it home before the bad weather hit Philadelphia. A note to fellow travelers: Security opens at 4:30am. If you wake up at 1:30am and think it’s a good idea to be at the airport by 2:45am, you should probably roll over and go back to sleep.

We feasted on Tim’s peanut butter cheesecake:

Thanksgiving was delicious! It was especially wonderful to have everyone together to share the meal and play some 31:

On Tuesday, we went to Wegmans for our weekly shopping and found a 24 lb turkey on a deep discount. Always looking for a way to connect with friends and family, we bought the Grand Champion and enlisted three others to help us wrangle this big bird. Wegmans does it right: free range and local from the Lehigh Valley. Andy helped us brine GC and he made for a most delicious bird. We are grateful for the turkey dinner, turkey salad, turkey chili, and split pea soup.
Below, GC takes a brine bath:

We channeled Gabriel and thanked the turkey for nourishing us on our journeys:

We are enjoying our time before the holidays, reflecting on our greatest gifts–our relationships with others, our health, and our progress this year. Enjoying the quiet and peace of the season.
