A view of the Potomac River from George Washington's back porch @ Mount Vernon.
Today I've got some tidying up around the house to do and I'll get some cooking done for tomorrow. Things like the cornbread dressing, pies (apple and pumpkin), and mashed potatoes so then I can just heat those up tomorrow. I'll only have the turkey left to cook tomorrow and the green bean casserole and sweet potato casserole which i don't think those hold up well enough to sit in the fridge. I can also get the relish tray together today to save time. No matter how much I prepare, seems like I'm up till midnight cooking the night before, then up bright and early to get the turkey in the oven!
Safe travels if you are out on the road!
Linking up with Tricia's new Watery Wednesday II so go check it out!
i like the bit of tree branch peeking from beyond those columns.ReplyDelete
enjoy your thanksgiving feast!
Oh I do wish I had made time to visit Mt Vernon when we were in Washington last. Enjoyed reading about your preparations for Thanksgiving. You seem well organised :). Well done.ReplyDelete
An interesting black and white. I too am getting some last minute things together for tomorrow.ReplyDelete
Nice B&W with a hint of the river! I like the branch, too, whether that was on purpose or not. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday!ReplyDelete
Beautiful shot! I haven't been to Mount Vernon in ages. Happy Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete

What a lovely back porch view! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, enjoy your day! :)ReplyDelete
Nice shot- have a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow!ReplyDelete
Strange that I have never been to Mt. Vernon, not sure why as I like places like that. I took a lot of frosty shots this morning but didn't get motivated to do B&W, I found a setting on GIMP which is my photo software that replicates the Diana camera look so I may give that a try.ReplyDelete
Nice shot! Sounds like you are cooking up a storm! Enjoy your Thanksgiving?ReplyDelete
Oops, that is not supposed to be a question mark. (Guess I'm technologically challenged)ReplyDelete

Happy Thanksgiving Tanya I surely wish I lived closer that sounds wonderful. Enjoy Hug BReplyDelete
