Seeing Red

As I think is only right and just, my family's Thanksgiving table was graced by a superabundance of things cranberry: three of them from my kitchen (clockwise from the top: cranberry chutney with maple syrup, apple, and thyme; fresh cranberry relish with citrus and cinnamon; and classic whole cranberry sauce), and one from a can.  The more adventuresome gave the first three a try; the less adventuresome made sure I had some to take back home.

From the same region on my color wheel, my "Christmas" cactus seems to have gotten a bit confused: it started blushing right about Halloween, and looks like it'll be almost through blooming by the First Sunday of Advent.  There's an overachiever in every crowd, isn't there?
