Thanksgiving is on Thursday and I am so excited to chow down with my family. I flew home to my little mountain town on Saturday night and was welcomed in by a snow storm. It is the best kind of wintery greeting a girl like me could get :) I love the snow and I love power outages (of which my family has multiples during the winter.) I was hoping that it would snow while I was home, and snap, it happened! Plus we were out of power from when I arrived on Saturday till Sunday night. Perfect. Well, minus the fact that I really needed the internet to work on a bunch of my current client's work! Shoot.
On Sunday morning, we usually go to my Dad's church (He is an Episcopalian priest, for those of you who don't know that yet.) But the power at the church kept flickering in and out. So the momma and sister and I stayed home and toasted bread via the gas stove top.
After a toasty breakfast, snuggled up by the wood stove in the living room, my littlest sister and I trekked down into town to see if there was any power in the shops.
(ps, if you ever use a wood stove: to keep the air from getting all dry, put a pot of water with orange and persimmon slices cut up in it. It heats up and keep the air moisture balanced and it leaves your home smelling so yummy and autumnal.)
Isn't that truck beautiful? I want one.
My sister and I stopped in to our favorite coffeeshop. Mekka. I've probably mentioned it before :)
Their drinks display is the best. It is on an old bed frame. Can you see it?
Our favorite drink is the Fairy Tea. It is so yummy yum. A mixture of steamed rice milk, white chocolate, and cinnamon, it a little bit reminds me of Horchata, but better, and a little more magical :)
