It was followed by a long, lazy weekend. When I was a girl — and even when my older children were kids — we would putter around the house, rake leaves and eat turkey sandwiches.
I have a nice memory of being in my grandmother’s kitchen a few days after Thanksgiving. She made the best turkey soup, with pearl barley and carrots. To keep grandkids occupied, our grandmother set up a little workshop. We made ornaments by pinning ribbons and sequins onto Styrofoam balls. They were to decorate a Christmas tree weeks away.
Christmas is still weeks away, but it’s getting harder not to go out shopping before the leftovers get cold.
