and... I'm back...
Time has been doing weird things lately... I've been trying to explain it you for the last 30 minutes but just can't seem to express the randomness of time flying by, feeling normal or standing still.
I got the table done last weekend but didn't get the pictures done until a week later.
If you ever need anyone to second guess your decisions, I'm available. Although I'm usually pretty busy second guessing myself so often I may not have time to help you.
Now I just have to find a bit more room... somewhere... no problem. There are only four plates to store.
Well, actually I should say four more plates to store along with the four new yellow plates and the 4 new (to me) leaf plates. I think you get the picture.
I hope you have a good Thanksgiving, whatever you end up doing. I saw this blessing on Pinterest recently;
"God bless the food before us, the friends besides us and the love between us".

I had to take the table apart a bit to wash everything for Thanksgiving day and I decided to also move the table cloth to the table at which we'd actually be eating. While the antique table my friends are loading me is beautiful it's completely impractical for dining it's a drop leaf table and there's no room for anyone's legs.
I took a few more pictures after I washed all the pieces I'd need and rearranged things a bit.
Thanksgiving was a huge success and as usual we had a great time making it. For the second year, the stuffing didn't make it into the oven until the turkey was out and resting but we really enjoyed everything. Dinner was totally delicious and dessert even more so. I made pumpkin cheesecake bars but my friends peanut butter chocolate pie was truly the grande finale!

It's been an interesting fall for me this year. The weather has been perfect, I've felt more love and support from my friends than I have in years... and I've been really distracted with other life stuff. The last point being the excuse for a very brief post.
This table is just a bit more fall but I'm not quite ready for a Thanksgiving table yet.
I only wish my table was a bit bigger, I had a few more things I wanted to add but they just wouldn't fit. Hmmm... maybe that's for the best.

I hope you're having an amazing autumn and have a chance to enjoy all the fun and excitement of the coming holidays.
