  1. Good morning,
    my family is celebrating Thanksgiving today, hence a repost.
    When autumn rolls around, I get homesick for the East Coast, and last year, I managed to actually go back and visits friends all over the place, from Washington, DC, down to Norath and South Carolina. Heaven!
    Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and thank you for visiting and enriching my days with your comments,

  2. I am also on Facebook, come join me there! Every now and then I manage to load up an extra picture or link there.

  3. I too love the East Coast...from the Southeast on up. Savannah, Charleston, Washington, DC....and one big sigh..New York.

    Do tell...

    Will you be preparing a Thanksgiving dinner with a Vienna twist?

    2. Hello, Laurie, nice to "see" you! :-)
      I think it's as American as can be. I hope to write about it after the weekend. Trying to shoot some pictures in between (sticky, oily hands!). It's twelve, and the turkey's in the oven, cranberry sauce, 2 apple pies, chocolate pean tart (huge), all one the windowsill to cool. Two varieties of green beans cooked (will be reheated with olive oil, garlic and lemon zest). After my two minutes of rest, I shall throw the dressing together (leeks, celery, and bacon already sauteed ahead and frozen). There will be scallops on a bed of wild herb salad as a little "Gruß aus der Küche" once the guests are all here. Then they have to wait until the turkey, er, I am ready with the rest of it.
      A little helper already decked the table last night. Woohoo! :-)

    3. Pecan instead of pean! ;-)

  4. What great snaps, especially the little white church in Bethesda. Churches just like that are all over the south and they never cease to amaze me how pretty they are in their simplicity.

    Your Thanksgiving feast sounds fantastic. You must have been cooking all week from the sound of your menu. Have a great get-together.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving, dear Merisi! I love the pictures especially the framing of the tree on the Maryland one. Your feast sounds fabulous -- I'm in the process of organizing ours...

  6. Very lovely, have a nice sunday.

  7. Best regard from belgium and my two golden Cerise and zitablue

  8. Dear Merisi, Happy Thanksgiving!
