I'm so excited! My sisters will be coming into town today to begin the Thanksgiving festivities. I love the action, food, and general good feeling. I will have chili at my house tonight to give mother room in her kitchen for the main food. Maybe there will be an opportunity for Scrabble!!
My to do list is enormous today:
Repair a few chairs for mother
Finish two work projects
Make cranberry sauce
Make the crusts for the pecan pies
Bake the sweet potatoes for the puree
Straighten and shine my house
I love the energy and expectation before holidays. True, they don't always live up to the sky-high Norman Rockwell inspired expectations, but on the day before there is always possibility.
I am a homeschooling mother who lives on a farm in Central Mississippi with a man (husband of 21 years), a boy(11), a girl(8), a horse, 9 cats, and a yellow dog. I have tried on many different hats in career, education, and life. Being a homeschooling farm mama requires me to wear almost all of those hats at once. I knew there was a reason for all those curves of life.
