Making Thanksgiving

It's the second-to-last week of school, two days before Hanukkah, and three days before Thanksgiving.

No pressure, y'all!

I've got all the presents bought for the kid this year, at least -- not like some years! -- though I have not actually wrapped any.  Maybe soon!

And we have actually done (most) of the shopping for Thanksgiving dinner: a turkey, sweet potatoes, peas for the pea tureen, potatoes for some fancy potato thing Dr. Skull is making (Dr. Skull does all the cooking for Thanksgiving dinner, except the sweet potato casserole, which I do), pumpkin for the pumpkin pies, pear for the pear tarts, various other foods for various other dishes.

(Ack!  I just realized we haven't bought the potatoes or the Matzo meal for the latkes!)

And Sunday morning I managed to wake up in time to take the horrible sofa cover to the laundromat and get it washed.  (Big Dog sleeps on it, and it was appalling.)

How are your holiday plans going?

OMG! I have 5 hours to scrub my house down before my in-laws arrive and I was typically insomniac last night. And tomorrow I'm cooking the whole spread. I totally signed up for this. Well, better get on it!

Happy T-Day everyone! --L
