I love Thanksgiving week.
The hustle-bustle. The excitement.
I love the preparation and list making.
I love giving the kids a modified school schedule, requiring only History and Literature reading to be completed. Its a holiday hall-pass...for them....for me.
I'm looking forward to the games we'll play, the birthday we'll celebrate (The Mister is the man of the month) and the Turkey-Time Tolkien Trilogy Tradition.
(Say that three-times, fast.)
Yes, we'll start on Tuesday with The Lord of the Rings and watch a movie each night. However I'm not one to waste nine precious hours just sitting. While Frodo carries the ring to Mordor, I will be crocheting Christmas gifts and sipping coffee and tea.
(I guess now would be the time to tell you: I love alliteration.)
Speaking of crochet...
I finished my poncho project this weekend and to say I have poncho pride would be precise.
(Nothing says "pride" like posting pics with wet hair and no make-up)
Ok, I'll stop and move on now....
I'm thankful that in spite of the bloggers-block I am currently facing you continue to read! Thank you!
I hope to blog this week, but it might not happen since The Mister will be home and the festivities will be in full-swing.
I pray you have a blessed Thanksgiving...filled with all the things and people you love.
