Ready for the Thanksgiving Kaffeeklatch

We have a lot to be thankful for here at The Glade.  Charlie and I send blessings to everyone who reads LFTM and wish you a wonderful and peaceful Thanksgiving Day.

We sliced and sautéed loads of onions.

We spent yesterday cooking anything that could be prepared ahead of time in anticipation of our Thanksgiving morning open house.

We're setting up the coffee station on the peninsula.

We went to bed with the buffet table set and the breakfast food ready to pop into the oven.

I like to lay out different types of silverware on the table so folks can select what they like.

This morning we’re finishing up a few cooking details: baking the French toast casserole, sautéing apples, making cranberry turnovers, and assembling turkey sliders.

We wonder how we used to have parties with our former tiny kitchen.

Other than coffee drinks everyone should feel free to concoct their own drinks.

The cold drink station is near the refrigerator with an ice dispenser on the door.

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
