We had an international Thanksgiving celebration today with 4 Americans, 1 Belgian, 1 Italian, 1 Austrian, and 1 Liechtensteiner, in Würselen, Germany. We all had a great time, and much tasty food was consumed. We made turkey, gravy, bread dumplings, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry relish, and pumpkin and apple pie. Thomas and Ulli brought mini quiches, red cabbage, and apple streusel. Lorenza and Jeroen brought an endive salad and a tasty cauliflower and caper dish, plus some Italian wine. Spencer and Meg both helped quite a bit with cleaning and cooking. It was really nice to celebrate. With COVID numbers rising as they are, it seems likely we will be going back into lockdown soon.
Thanksgiving was a big success for the Fedibblety family. There were 8 (and 7/9) people in attendance, including Rob & Clare, Dave & Ellen, Harold & Fran, and also Bret & Drew. We had a very nice Thanksgiving day, with lots of cooking and eating. We even used the wood cookstove for some dishes.
Then on Friday, we packed up the moving truck, and Ellen & Dave drove it out to Colorado on Saturday, which was successfully unpacked today. It was quite a bit of work, but it is always nice to be together with family. Thanks to everyone for their help packing. We couldn’t have done it without you!!
We did get into one home improvement project during the holiday, which was replacing the brick moulding and the door frame to the door above the garage, which had been rotting. It seems that water had been collecting near the the bottom, and it was rotting up the sides. Ellen had the ingenious idea to put some flashing down to try to get the water to drip down and away, instead of sitting there. Hopefully that will work as intended. Only time will tell.
I’ll let the pictures display the rest.
