Gearing Up



Today I am gearing up for the family gathering here at the farmette this Thursday. Lots of food, laughter, and let us all pray for a well done turkey. 

Perhaps, through this barn photograph,  I am channeling thoughts of an empty turkey carcass after everyone has declared it delicious.  Perhaps.....



"He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part; 
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart."

  28. The farmette is going to rock this Thanksgiving- The description of the barn via a turkey carcass is very clever.
    Don't forget to make stock with the carcass!

    Happy Thanksgiving.
