Thanksgiving is coming...
This time next week, I will be stuffed and miserable! As it only happens once a year,I won't feel guilty ... just blessed for the day.
For me the build up and anticipation of Thanksgiving is what I enjoy the most. When I worked, I would take T'giving week off. On Monday, I would cut and chop ingredients for the dressing, and make other preparations. After grocery shopping, my daughter always laughed at me for the way I would almost cover the kitchen counter tops with the groceries (cans, boxes, etc.) that I would be using. I would group non-perishable food items together ie. ingredients for pies, fruit salads, etc,.I felt like I had an assembly line going, and didn't have to dig through the pantry. Tuesday would have specific things for me to do as well as Wednesday. Thanksgiving morning, Paul (deceased DH) would start carving 'old Tom turkey'. Kristi (DD) would set the table, help me in the kitchen, make sure items were picked up, and light the candles (what ambiance they make ~ love, love, love candles). Family would start arriving around 11:00. They would pitch-in as well, as we started our visiting and catching-up.Seems like they all ended up in the kitchen ... helping and sampling ~ ha-ha. Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday, and still is, even though my family has drastically been reduced, as God has called so many home. I hope each of you have a blessed day and remember those that aren't as fortunate as you. Also remember our brave soldiers fighting for our freedom. God bless...

It is always nice to get everything in order.
I like to be organized too. I am sorry so many things have changed for you. Holidays have to be hard for so many people that have lost loved ones.
Kuntry Gal, reading your blog reminds me of past Thanksgivings at home with fondness. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
