t-day prep

i start in august, i really do. all the cleaning and organizing needs to be done by thanksgiving, so that i can enjoy all the things i love about this holiday. i try to plan ahead, even bake ahead, but i am never quite where i want to be this, the week of thanksgiving. curtains hang in the windows, covering them, waiting for me to hang new hooks to pull them back. windows are washed inside and out - but not the bedroom ones. i have a cabinet yet to paint and then fill with the contents of the old cabinet, which are piled haphazardly in, of all places, the guest room. to add to the stress, i am in week four of a six week online course.

in the end, all i can do is laugh, pin back the curtains with twine, close the bedroom doors, and get my homework done. i'm so excited that thanksgiving's coming.

Cute! Thanksgiving is exciting. Thanks for reminding me. Since we are moving in 10 days and since no one will be here to celebrate with us, I thought maybe I'd skip the whole process. Will look for a way to make it special. Thanks again.

Nellie Dee: i hope you do find a way to make thanksgiving special in the stress of moving - and i hope your december holidays in your new place are wonderful!

Since moving back to the Netherlands, Thanksgiving is one holiday I do miss very much. I remember if for all the joy it was and all the good eating.

I adore Thanksgiving too! Although I've never cooked with real pumpkin before!
