This morning. . .

I woke up to this. . .


. . . .and started making a mental list of my plans for the day.

*  Shop for groceries for Thanksgiving.  (I hope there are  still some nice, big, fat turkeys left.)

*  Take the Girl Child to horseback riding lessons.

*  Plan menus for the week.

*  Get out china, silver, tablecloths and figure out a centerpiece.

*  Clean off my desk and clean out my purse.  Because when these two things are uncluttered, it helps my brain get uncluttered.

*  Clean a couple bathrooms.

*  Make a chore list for my kids so they can help me get the house company ready.

So, in the words of a wise woman. . . . "I'm off like a terd of hurtles."

No turkey yet? Better hurry!

It's a fun time, though, don't you think? The busy-ness of the holidays is different, in a happy way ... Enjoy!

Hope you found your turkey!
Sounds like you are going to a busy girl.
I am looking forward to some family time after we get Ken through eye surgery.
Good luck with your plans.
