We had a very pleasant Thanksgiving--just the five of us. We had dinner at Beverly's house. She did most of the heavy lifting as far as the cooking was concerned but I made a few things at home and went to help her with the final preparations for the day. We were very thankful that Tom could be with us. It has been two and a half months since we have seen him. The winter storm over the weekend and beginning of the week had me concerned about his traveling home but he made it okay. He and Maddy drove over Snoqualmie Pass Tuesday afternoon--by then the highways were not too bad. It only took them a little longer than usual to make the trip. He had to take a $60 taxi ride from Kirkland to the Seattle Amtrak station because the roads were still pretty icy. And his Amtrak ride took a little longer than planned but we were very happy to have him home when he got here Wednesday afternoon. We are so blessed to have each other. Hoping everyone had a wonderful holiday as well.
