Turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, sweet potatoes with marshmallows on top, mashed potatoes, and much much more! This is what occupied one particular table in Edinburg on Thursday. Our friend Ruth invited Andy and I over to her parents house for a quite-American thanksgiving. Ruths husband, Todd is from California. His mum was over for a few weeks and so she became the official host of an absolutely amazing thanksgiving. I made my very first pumpkin pie to add to the ensemble. For never making a pumpkin pie before, Andy said it was the best he’s ever had…of course he had never had pumpkin pie before…that probably had nothing to do with it 😉 There were probably about 15 people over at Ruths parents house and we proceeded to play a very active game called King Elephant. Details of the game are quite complicated…basically you make stupid sounds impersonating animals and try to win…which I did! Hoo Rah! 😛
We spent the night over at Gran and Grandad Bruce’s house and spent the next morning hanging out with them both reading books, chatting, drinking tea, and eating far too much food! Lol, good ‘ol Granny Bruce 😀
We got a bus back from Edinburg to Glasgow where I met up with the lovely Anna Shields to go see Ludovico Einaudi!!! He played a wonderful concert. I got to see him to years ago in Newcastle and he wowed the audience yet again. We followed it up with a very sophisticated cup of coffee and lovely visit in McDonalds. I love that they basically never close 🙂 I have to say that it was a wonderful end to a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend.
And here stands one of the most amazing piano players I have ever heard in my entire life!
