I love Thanksgiving. I think it's such a special holiday. Certainly it is the prelude to the holiday season. But it's nice when the whole family can gather, join in on the preparation for the special feast, listen to good music and just enjoy a long, leisurely meal together.
This year I asked to be dismissed from preparing Thanksgiving dinner. I had no alternate plan-I just felt like taking a break. Lucky for us, my former Mother-in-law, who we all adore has invited us to her table...along with about 24 other guests.
The whole family and extended family will be together. No one will be left out and it will be a first.
I'm already planning the dishes I will bring to the table. We are looking forward to this more than I can say. What could be any better than one complete family sharing in this special day?
Are any of you looking at the calendar and feeling those first twinges of anxiousness?
I am looking ahead at creating our holiday card, shopping, a few painting commissions to complete
and plenty of cooking. I think the best way to handle it is starting with a list of all that you need to accomplish.
Set forth each day and start pecking away, one thing at a time.
I will put a halt to some projects three weeks prior to Christmas and plan to enjoy those days leading up to Christmas Eve.
But for now~ I want to look forward to Thanksgiving. The poor holiday that is somehow overlooked with the rush to Christmas.
I'd love to hear about your Thanksgiving Day plans.
