Or how far away from your home
- where ever home may be...
The heart flies home
The holiday is fast approaching... don't know why but I seem to be anticipating it more than a kid can't wait for Christmas. I'm so excited to have family coming in from all over the place. I have a house full of some who are already arrived, one from as far away as London. We shall be hosting the BBQ for a crowd of 17 the night before, with all of my kids plus friends... then on the actual bird day I'll be serving 15 folks - other family and friends.
We usually celebrate the holiday up in the mountains, in a cabin with a bit more room to accomodate all the bodies. Not so this year - my house is filled nigh unto bursting, and people will be more cozy than usual :) There is no more room in my icebox as it is crammed with the 23 lb turkey, a 15 lb ham, and all the trimmings-yet-to-be. I believe the weather is going to cooperate with sunny skies, which is great for those folks sleeping out in the tents in the yard.
This is a short week! Safe journey to any of you who are traveling out there in the monster holiday traffic.
