Thanksgiving in San Francisco...

Jeff and I spent a quiet Thanksgiving in San Francisco. It was a BEAUTIFUL day in SF...mid 70s...sunny...perfect. Jeff went out in the garden and created an amazing centerpiece for the table. The meal was wonderful, with an herb-filled turkey (rosemary from the garden), Jeff's own stuffing creation (the best item on the table!), must-have green bean casserole, garlic mashed potatoes, and a scrumptious hearty mushroom gravy. Jeff made a pumpkin cheesecake for dessert...and we have a pumpkin pie if that runs low :)

Of course...stories from our families did make us a bit homesick. Big piles of leaves in Virginia, which nephew Benjamin seems to LOVE playing in. A big family gathering in Michigan with the first snow of the season for decoration. We miss everyone, and send out big hugs.

At dusk, we worked off the meal with a walk along the Bay in the brilliant light of the Golden Gate Bridge. The perfect end to the day.

Happy Thanksgiving :)

Happy Thanksgiving John and Jeff! It was a gorgeous day in VA, but it sounds like yours was just as beautiful. The photograph of the bridge is amazing. Thanks for sharing that treat with us.

Add JC Penny to your list of people who opened at 4am. There is NOTHING that I need that badly to disturb my sleep.
