Our First Thanksgiving in So-Cal 南カリフォルニアで最初の感謝祭

Now I am back in San Diego, and despite my awful jet lag the Thanksgiving Day came the next day. All I wanted to do was to sleep, and I did not want to think of the turkey and the cranberry sauce. However, my husband and I were invited to Terry & Ed's house for a wonderful gathering, and I am so glad that we went! It was a very intimate and casual group of 10 people. We kept laughing and chatting, and the evening couldn't be better! Needless to say that the food was good.


Well, well, well.., everyone except me drank so much! There were all sorts of wines and champagnes, and there was a bottle from Argentina, called Route 40. It rather looked like a California wine with a name like that.


Since I am not so crazy about the pumpkin pies I brought this small pecan pie for myself. I put an extra large amount of whipped cream on top, and it was perfect. After the fun dinner my jet lag was completely gone! We played the "beer ping pong" followed by some serious karaoke. On the way home I felt grateful to be full, to have good friends, to have good health and to be alive. I am glad that I did not forget to be thankful after all...

パンプキンパイが苦手な私は、小さなピカンパイを持って行きました。この上にたっぷりのクリームを乗せていただいたら完璧でした。気付ば時差ぼけもふっとんでいた!ディナーの後は、皆で「ビールピンポン」をして、その後はカラオケ。笑 皆、歌う、歌う、、、!帰り道、車の中で、お腹いっぱい食べれることに感謝、良い友人たちに感謝、健康であることに感謝、生きていることに感謝しました。感謝する日に感謝の気持ちを忘れなくてよかった、、、ほっ。
