The turkey is thawing and the bread is baking in preparation for Thanksgiving tomorrow. I scurried around like a mouse this morning cleaning, vacuuming and otherwise disposing of, you know the stuff, the bits that just seem to accrue in the oddest of places.
Family comes in tomorrow and a super clean house is always so much more relaxing when welcoming visitors. I actually put a few things away when I have a full house, as it seems so much more clean, roomy and relaxing. Am I the only one that does this? Maybe it is owning a little house syndrome.
And the pumpkin pie mix, not for a pie, but a mix that I make each year that is darned delicious. Throw 1 can of pie mix in with 2 boxes of cream cheese, whip and dip fresh cut apples in and you have a mind blowing, lick the bowl clean, dessert to pick at all day long.
Is is wrong to be somewhat overly excited about the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in the morning?
I love grabbing the wee fresh from his crib, throwing a down comforter (now that is actually COLD) on the couch and watching his expressions change as different balloons pass by. And of course the finale - Mr. Claus waving hello.
So tomorrow = Macy's followed by a feast and then off to finish this:
Creating the vintage snow scene and decorating the tree. I was allowed to keep some of the vintage animals from my mother's 50's Christmas display she had as a child in Japan this year. Oh, did you know flickr has a vintage christmas group, yeah me neither.
More frost inspiration:
Now that is, Doctor Zhivago cold.
Happy Thanksgiving and/or Happy cold, winter like day for cuddling and eating too to all.
