Time to move on...

Flip the page on the calendar. It’s November. Time to get ready for Thanksgiving. As much as I love Halloween, I also hold a pretty soft spot in my heart for Thanksgiving.

It’s a no pressure holiday. You don’t need to buy a special outfit or get a gift that someone will only return or stick in a drawer to be forgotten. You come together with friends and family and share a meal. You spend time thinking about what is important to you and the things that you are grateful for.

Some good food. A little wine. A slice of pumpkin pie.

Better start getting ready.

The big spider has been taken down.

The little spiders have been chased away.

All the bones have been collected.

Jack-o-lanterns and sculls are accounted for.

No more haunted house. The ghosts will have to go away until next year.

It’s turkey time.

It’s time to pull on a sweater and heat up some cider.

It’s time to pull out the cookbooks and gather the recipe cards.

Can you smell all the yummy food??

You my dear I just knew would have the best decorations. I'm surprised we didn't see how to re purpose the ones you found at the yard sale :)

You're ahead of me for sure - the decorations look wonderful and - yes - thanks to a dear friend I think I can smell all that yummy food!!!

Just like Halloween, I don't have any Thanksgiving decorations. My poor deprived kids!

I had to laugh at "all the bones are collected" and admire your spider collection.

You have a nice set of Gobblers too! I hope this Thanksgiving finds you filled with soul comforting food and warmed from love.
