My "crazy-getting-ready" for Thanksgiving list:
once again, bring the history of the holiday to my homeschool
make lists; several of them-then try to remember where I put them
the menu- why do we need so much food?
the groceries; did I mention shopping makes me ugly
the set up..my house is not conductive to large get-togethers
pray- no, really...family gatherings don't drive you to prayer?
cleaning- funny how that works...no one is really going to look in the pantry, are they?
looking at everyone's work schedule and wondering why I bother
sitting on the green bench under the oak
sipping warm coffee
listening to barn life
