It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m not here.

I’m in the kitchen,
basting the turkey
roasting the potatoes
marinating the vegetables for salad
pureeing the sweet potato and rutabaga
stuffing the squash
(with quinoa, sunflower seeds and parmesan)
toasting the bread cubes and walnut
(to put in the stuffing)
mulling the wine
chopping cranberries for the cranberry relish
heating the apple cider
putting the cut flowers in the vase
strewing the table with pretty leaves
whipping the cream
to go on the (store-bought)
pumpkin and
apple pies.

And I’m loving it. All so that I can sit round the table with some of the people I love the best.

Happy Thanksgiving, fellow Canadians!
