Happy Thanksgiving!

Love and wishes for a blessed, warm and loving day to all our favorite Americans. We have indeed made plans to celebrate here in our flat, but tomorrow as it will be easier given no time off school, work, etc. The bird has been procured (a chicken) and a pumpkin pie is in the oven as I write. A labor of love, as canned pumpkin was nowhere to be found so I steamed fresh pumpkin and mashed it with my hands (no food processor either). Talk about doing it like the pilgrims!
