And we finally arrive in November, documenting in real time, and their first Thanksgiving in the new house. The morning begins with homemade pumpkin spice donuts, much anticipated and heralded, end up a disappointment. There is an amazing shortage of sugar in the house, and a pumpkin pie wipes us out. But the rotisseried turkey, stuffing and parsnip puree are wonderful, and dinner at the table, a bit later than planned, is still a delight. Even though the kitchen is not fully organized and optimized, we both have space to move and breathe in the kitchen at the same time.
