Getting ready for Thanksgiving

Aaah . . . a 4 - day weekend :)

This is the 2nd year I'm not spending Thanksgiving with my mom. Last year, Jake and I moved over Thanksgiving weekend. Dinner was very low key because we were EXHAUSTED. I did cook, but just a turkey breast and some stovetop! This year will be more traditional and I'm prepping tonight. The cranberry relish is in the fridge. The potatoes are cut up and in water. The pumpkin pie is cooling. Last thing on the agenda is a quick trip to Kroger for heavy cream to make pumpkin creme brulee. . . . . . YUM. . . I LOVE LOVE LOVE creme brulee!!!

I'm also looking forward to a whole day of not feeling guilty about knitting in every spare moment!

Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving and enjoy time with your family or whoever you are spending it with!

ps - Good luck Black Friday if you are going out shopping, too. . . . I know some of you are the crazy people who will be up before dawn! Especially since this year it's getting crazier. . . Kohls is opening at 4AM. . . really? Good Lord!

Enjoy your Thanksgiving. Glad you got to prep before, so it won't be too stressy. Shopping? Me? On that day? No way. Just think of all the store workers that have to be up and ready way before 4 am.

Hi, thanks for your encouragement on knitting the endpapers. I have the pattern and some yarn so I'll hopefully give it a go over Christmas. Got to get the Christmas presant knitting out of the way first! Will let you know how I get on.
