Talking Turkey


So much for that warm weather we enjoyed for the last two days. I woke up to gray, rainy skies and a chill in the air. Oh well. It’s November. That’s what it’s supposed to do, right?

This time of year I’m not thinking about gardening and landscaping, or dreaming of a pool with jandy pool lights, I’m focusssing on the holidays and in particular Thanksgiving, which totally snuck up on me! I can’t believe that it’s next week!

Luckily, I don’t find it to be all that stressful. I’ve made my list out, so I know what we’re having. Honestly, I find it to be a pretty easy meal to pull together. It’s just that the main course takes forever to cook!


I also am going to refer back to my “Turkey Timeline” that I used last year. I’ll need to adjust it a bit because we did end up eating later than scheduled, and this year I’ll be doing a slightly bigger turkey because my parents will also be here, but it’s a starting point and something to go on. I never remember what time I put the turkey in, so it’s wonderful to at least have an idea this year!


Is it crazy to make out lists like this? LOL, I am just one of those people who has to write everything down. Otherwise I forget it. (My dad likes to call it CRS — “Can’t Remember S–t”!) What about you guys? Are you getting ready for Thanksgiving? Do you have lists made out, too?
