    It's after 12:00 a.m. (US EST) so it's officially Thanksgiving! Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it !!!!!

    I took Wednesday off to shop, clean the house (begone dust bunnies) and prepare. Menu for Turkey Day is as follows:
    Stuffed turkey (but of course)
    Corn
    Roasted cauliflower
    Mashed potatoes
    Brown sugared & baked sweet potatoes and acorn squash (thanks to the final issue of Gourmet magazine)
    Green beans with bacon
    Yellow squash
    Cranberry and orange relish
    Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Sparkling Cider
    Pumpkin pie and Mince pie (my favorite)

    A few hours ago, my daughter came home from college (with boyfriend, his ferret, and a new cat.. a princely, 3-year old black and white short hair named Gustav) in tow. Our two cats (Kosmo the Tuxedo cat and Ali the Siamese) were not very impressed with "cousin Gus". In fact, they were quite bent out of shape. So after much consoling and confirmation of supreme position and importance, the house cats are now calm. Gustav ("Gus" to close friends and family), was quarantined to the downstairs bathroom, now known as "the Guest cat room", with litter box, water dish, food, and a cozy bed of blankets in a cardboard box, into which, I should add, he gratefully jumped. A night light, some soft cooing, and a few good scratches behind the ole ears, and he was ready to call it a day.

    "K" (beloved daughter) and I retired to the dining room to nibble on goodies and talk The future is open to possibilities. Design is her passion.

    Oh yes...SotD and SotE: I wore Ralph Lauren Safari, and I felt like a leading lady. Love this stuff.

    Or des Indes. Not looking forward to dealing with a work issue. Gah.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    And Happy Thanksgiving to our American friends. I am more thankful than ever this year for my friends in Basenotes - some of you have pulled my head from where the sun doesn't shine a few times this year and I appreciate your help, support, love and jokes. How did I ever manage without you?

    Mwa!

    Mike's birthday and Thanksgiving ~ these two go together like milk & cookies (or turkey & stuffing, pumpkin pie & whipped cream, mashed potatoes & gravy! )

    Wishing you a very Happy Birthday Mike!

    I'm thankful for friends, real & virtual. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year, when we celebrate eachother...and give thanks for every blessing large or small!

    With gratitude for the nose of Maurice Roucel, it is my privilege to wear the gorgeous Musc Ravageur which he has given to our fabulous world of fragrance!

    Eat * Drink * Be Merry Happy Thanksgiving Day!

    Happy birthday, Mike. Happy Thanksgiving, Americans!

    Have an exciting morning at the garage for a windshield chip (vulcanization sounds so cool). Think the only scent that would match that occasion is CdG2 since I don't own Garage (haha)

    Pomander, these are some well -written kitty tales. Hope, cousin Gus does not exhaust you all and bend you personally out of shape. Write more!

    MikieP's Birthday (and my mom's), easy to remember. Happy Day and many fragrant surprises.

    The menu at the Wolves' today is: Roast Beast with carrots and celery, Baby Reds, yellow bean casserole with cashews, homemade cranberry-orange-spice relish and a Dutch Apple Pie a la Vanilla Mode. The oven is getting some excercise. First year in my almost 11 years in the USA I am not at work. :bounce:

    I am happy and giving thanks for many things -- partnership and friendship mostly.

    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIKE!!!

    I'll be wearing either KenzoKi Euphoria Ginger Flower or Le Couvent des Minimes Lemon Verbena later because either one works so well with food, they are simple, fresh and natural, and I'll be around a crowd eating out. We decided to go to a buffet with the tourists today, which is unusual for us, but I'm excited!! Woohoo!

    I AM SO THANKFUL FOR BASENOTES AND ALL THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE HERE!!! HAVE A GOOD ONE WHEREVER YOU MAY ROAM!!!

    Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate.

    Because I did most of the cooking yesterday, put the turkey into the oven an hour ago, I have some time to relax. On the menu: Turkey seasoned with a spicy maple rub and basted in dark ale, mashed yams with sherry, cornbread stuffing, green beans (plain, for my father), buttermilk biscuits, cranberry sauce, key lime pie, whipped cream, and cherry dark chocolate, chocolate-covered brownie bits.

    I am wearing 1804.
