Early Thanksgiving Day musings....

It is 5 a.m. and the bird is stuffed and in the oven as I prepare for this Thanksgiving Day with family. My two sisters and I spent much of yesterday in the kitchen making stuffing, pies, preparing vegetables dishes to cook today ... so we are well on our way to being ready for our mid-day meal.

It's quiet now but as others awaken one by one the house will become a beehive of activity. The 12-year-old nieces will be playing a board game or doing something else together, SWAC Daughter will be helping in the kitchen, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade will be on the kitchen TV as well as the family room where the guys will gather around to watch and talk. My parents will be in and out of the kitchen but will be able to relax since we girls are doing all the cooking, and our spouses and children always help with cleaning up.

Thanksgiving 2007. We are blessed....
