I would love to spend a little time with you, my reader, on my blog today. It is a stormy day in upstate New York, and we are expecting snow a bit later in the week. The turkey is waiting to be thawed, the groceries and fresh produce from our favorite farm market are purchased and waiting for Thursday's big day of cooking and gratitude. Tomorrow morning I will try to sit down with a cuppa and do a bit of writing for you, but I cannot promise that will happen; it might be Friday morning before I can do...
