I have slightly mixed feelings as I prepare for Thanksgiving Day tomorrow. Not about anything really important mind you, I am truly grateful for all the wonderfulness large and small that makes up this ride I call life (yes, that includes YOU).
I'm talking about the shallow stuff.
For the past several years I have either hosted Thanksgiving at our house or contributed to it when it was held at my Dad's house. I usually enjoy cooking and I like the opportunity to use the leaf dishes that belonged to Scott's mom.
This is our first Thanksgiving with Peggy, so she is taking the reins on the turkey and all the trimmings. All we are supposed to do is show up. While nice, it's completely against my southern sensibilities.
I have to bring something. It's in my DNA.
I am also grateful that I don't have to clean the house or the dining table that is strewn with sewing paraphernalia from end to end and has a Singer as the centerpiece. I'm just saying.
Oh. One more thing just for fun...
Happy Thanksgiving Y'all! Have a wonderful day with family and friends and don't forget to wear your stretchy pants!
