Preparation

I had a little vision today while gathering fallen tree limbs ... of all the ceiling decorations falling on the Thanksgiving table ... so I am really securing the branches the ceiling, doing them a couple of days early, to give them a chance to fall, if they want to. This is how it all looks before ;)

Mom made herself a date/nut pie, precooked lots of t-day food today. I put her favorite songs on the cd player to have a little listen. Songs that we had listened to together our entire lives, we had a little cry and hug. Then I asked my son what he thought we my favorite song. First, he the one we were listening to at the moment, which was the blue diva singing Lucia Di Lammermoor. I said no, that was my second favorite. I made him sit down and listen to my first favorite song of all times (Lakme, Flower Duet). He then yawned and off to bed. But someday I hope, he will remember. I think it is important to remember what his parents favorite songs were. Mom and I know what our favorites are together, and that is a comfort. So, here in our tiny world ... we are having a great time.

I love that song, also. I played the video and my 5-year-old came from the other room to ask me to turn it off. He REALLY wanted me to turn it off. Sad. Now he's gone to turn on the TV so he can't hear it. :(

Happy Thanksgiving, Kim. Lakme is one of my faves, too. It sometimes brings tears.

Those are indeed days to be remembered.

Beautiful. Hope you all have a lovely Thanksgiving. I'm glad you posted that song. I'd forgotten what it was.

After I wrote that first comment, I went to enjoy the Flower Duet, also one of my favourite songs of all time. I sat through the viseo and then noticed, off to the side, the list of other versions one could choose to view. The one that disturbed ma a bit was the one entitled :"Flower Duet (The British Airways Song)"

e gads. But then again, there's that other great hit, "Beef, it's whats for dinner."
