I am off these next two days. Travel is not possible around this holiday unless we want to start driving somewhere at 6:30 Wednesday night, so we are tucked in for the next few days. I thawed a $5 turkey that we were keeping for Sam in our freezer (sorry, Sam) and will cook that up today. Along with Stovetop stuffing and mashed potatoes, we’re calling it good. With any luck, I might even make a pie.
I have a List. As we speak, I am jotting things down on it. I would really, really, really like to get as much done on the list as possible, but we all know how this will probably turn out. We’ll see. I have it divided into things that Must Happen, Should Happen and Want To Happen.
For the ‘Must’, I am not watching Sam and Rachel’s dog, but I am looking out for a friend’s cat. Can’t forget the cat. There are also some errands that need to happen. Under ‘Should’, there are various house cleaning/organizational things that would be good to get done, but are not urgent. Under ‘Want’ – well, it’s the pie.
I think I’ll start with the pie. Happy Thanksgiving!
