First of all, I hope those of you who celebrate it had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Instead of cooking, Mom and I went to Cracker Barrel and I snapped a few photos of things that interested me during our dinner. Things other than food, although wait — there are beverages. Does that count?
These were all taken with my cell phone.
Mom has had this flannel shirt for three years and it’s become her Thanksgiving shirt. When I see it, I immediately feel the warmth of our family and remember past Thanksgivings.
Whenever we go to Cracker Barrel, I’m fascinated by the high ceilings and the vintage items that adorn the walls. Every time I look around like I’ve never been there before, and Mom says, “Why are you looking around like that? You’ve seen it all before.” Doesn’t matter. I still find something new in the old.
I love hot chocolate. Nothing else to say about that. 😀
Our two mugs symbolize being together for the holidays. Mom’s poison is coffee (lots of coffee) and you already know what mine is, lol. As you can see, I’m the lucky one here because my mug is fairly full and Mom’s is not. 😉
One thing I did right: I had plain water in addition to the hc.
Mom decided she wanted to try her hand at cell phone photography, and here is her best shot. (LOL!!) I find it kind of artistic and I actually like it. I’m going to have it printed when I get my other photos developed. But what is it? Damned if I know. 😀
Finally, a brief video of my favorite place at the restaurant: the fireplace. I could sit there and stare into the fire for ages. The only downside was the noise drowned out the crackling of the fire. But we can ignore that, so please, come sit with me and gaze into the fire for a few seconds.
I hope you enjoyed my version of the holiday! ~xx
