Well, it's official: This is the last slice of holiday pecan pie.
God knows we've had enough. We had homemade pecan pie, homemade apple pie, pumpkin muffins, chocolate covered dried fruits, and finally, with the leftover turkey dinner we ate tonight, we broke down and picked up one of those Edwards pecan pies from the frozen section at the grocery store.
And it was just fine.
I spent a pleasant day today digging and planting tulip bulbs with pansies on top of them in beds, so we'll have lots of color through the cold winter months here in NC. It's become an annual ritual for me at Thanksgiving time, since I don't get time all fall to accomplish this, and it always feels so good to see those pops of color out there.
I'm sore all over now, but I know come spring, when those tulips rear their heads, I'll be so happy I did that. I leave on Monday for Massachusetts, for my final trip of the fall. I'm hoping for good weather, but it's the last trip, so surely I can handle whatever comes my way, oui?
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
"I would be proud to partake of your peeee-can piiiiiiiie..."
