the last week in pictures November 26, 2007

Things got so busy with work last week, and then it was so tempting to just take a few days off from everything for the holiday so sorry to be absent for so long! Here’s a little photo catch-up of a few of my favorite things (food and day trips) and I’ll write up some crafty stuff (Felt Club, the Sampler) starting again tomorrow…


The night before real Thanksgiving, we had low-key vegetarian Thanksgiving at home and it was awesome. I made acorn squash stuffed with wild rice, cherries, and cranberries along with sesame green beans. My first actual Veggie Dinnerplate entry!

Then for Thanksgiving we cooked at home and brought everything over to a potluck: sweet potatoes with maple-glazed pecans, vegetarian gravy, and stuffing with vegetarian sausage and cranberries. There was also a big piece of salmon in the oven that didn’t make it out in time for the photo:

We had a really low-key weekend, which was so nice, and then went up to Centralia, Washington yesterday to walk all over downtown, go to thrift stores, and check out the train station. It was beautiful out and we had such a nice time.

I loved the window display at Centralia Printing Co. downtown.

There are so many murals on the sides of buildings, I liked this one especially:

And the train came through while we were there!
