Tomorrow will be my first Thanksgiving in a long time with my little sister, my first with her husband, and several friends who have just moved out, and my last Thanksgiving with the friends who we've had Thanksgiving with every year since moving out here 8 years ago, as they are moving across the country next month.

Took my floating holiday so I can make this: http://www.thebittenword.com/thebittenword/2011/11/thanksgiving-make-ahead-roast-turkey-and-gravy.html

I'm glad I have the day off, because I just calculated and including the time to make the gravy, the whole thing will take 4 or 5 hours. LOL I hope it comes it comes out well!

Rediscovered this coffee which I bought at Arthur Avenue, AKA the Bronx's Little Italy.

I wonder if I can find more somewhere. They had so much cool stuff at Arthur Ave. I also found a violet pannetone there when I went with my family during Xmas last year, which I didn't get and sort of wish I had.

My other recent coffee obsession is putting orange blossom syrup in it. It's amazing - it tastes like Florida!

Unrelatedly, I have gotten to the point where I can name several silent film directors who I previously didn't know existed (Mack Sennett, Thomas, Erich Von Stroheim) and recognize which dress Mary Pickford wore to her wedding. 

I'm on my second Elinor Glyn novel in as many months. ('The Price of Things', now 'The Reason Why'). The version of The Price of Things that I have has the original illustrations. I just love the illustrations in old novels! I wish books had them today.
