The weekend, briefly

Such a busy long weekend. Thanksgiving was wonderful and my mom, my sister and I spent all day in the kitchen.

We set the table with family silver, my favorite heirloom lace crocheted table cloth, and the hand painted china.

We spent the weekend working on the leftovers.

And there was a whole lot of this (poor Circe hates the camera - she cannot understand why I insist on pointing that stupid thing at her when there is a perfectly good toy at my feet).

There was soldering to be done (I took the photographs, rather than handling the blow torch).

And pie for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

And a sunset drive down PCH, to round off the weekend.

  19. what a lovely weekend! what kind of dog is Circe?

  20. Circe is a wire haired fox terrier, Kathryn! She's adorable and a real handful - terriers can be stubborn and a bit difficult to train, but they're so sweet.

  21. She is so sweet-looking, I thought, "I must have that exact dog!"

    (I love your blog, by the way. I have been reading for awhile and trying out some of your awesome recipes.)
