Still want to party

Barbara Muir © 2012Tonight we went for dinner at my sister's.
She and her husband make a big round table
bigger, by placing a huge wooden circle
over the smaller circle of the table, and then
no one is sitting on a corner. Brilliant. We
were eight delighted participants -- seven grownups
and a lovely five-year old girl. After the adults
enjoyed a little champagne to toast the evening,
the sumptuous meal began.
And here's the thing. We do it all tomorrow
again at home -- complete with turkey, potatoes,
and pumpkin pie.
As for art, tonight's flowers look a bit baroque.
Baby it's cold outside. I traded my trench for
a light winter wool coat, and a scarf. So we are
closing in on this series. Still my love of the
resilient Nasturtiums, and Cosmos hasn't faded
a whit. Once again Happy, Happy Thanksgiving
to everyone in my land, and to everyone in yours.
