Thanksgiving 2012 - A very relaxing enjoyable weekend spent in Oakland and San Francisco. Alice and I spent Thanksgiving morning at her house preparing for our visit to Richard & Lisa's at 4. We took our time preparing appetizers, cleaning, reading. At the Youngs we feasted on delicious everything, cheese, nuts, crackers, hummus, then turkey, potatoes, rolls, green beans, more turkey. It was the Youngs, Rodney & Spike and me and Alice. I had three pomegranate champagne cocktails. Wow, they were good. We stayed until 10:30, the time I can barely keep my eyes open. I've become such a morning person. Friday was another Thanksgiving at Alice's with her family and another round of non-stop eating. I feel heavy all over. Saturday and Sunday have been leisurely and enjoyable. Last night, Alice and I finished up our viewing of Pillars of the Earth. This morning we played badminton until noon. I went to the library later today and checked out Julian Barnes's The Sense of an Ending, which I've been wanting to read all year.
