An all day soft rain
not much accomplished
recipes still piled on table
boxes of pictures I am sorting for children
are still sitting here.
Since Thanksgiving around the corner
I will try to hide them somewhere
until family leaves.
I have always like to iron on a rainy day
went up to the loft and into storage room
and brought ironing board into guest bedroom.
Ironed for several hours
pillow cases, table clothes (does anyone use them anymore besides me? :)
blouses and a cotton night gown - a lot still left.
left on the planet that likes to iron.
Early in the morning
turkey out of freezer
and make corn bread for dressing (not stuffing but corn bread in this cottage)
Need to pick a bouquet of my Sage.
Tuesday will make a rum cake
and have not made it in years.
My recipe is yellow with age and I wrote at the bottom "so good."
Wednesday will make pumpkin pie and a pecan pie (with choclate chips for Jamie)
Set table, platters, pans I use on counter and have everything ready for me to begin cooking at dawn on Thanksgiving.
I like my New York Times that I received on Sunday morning for 1/2 price,
always look forward to it
and this morning some was missing (disappointing) and
will have to call local delivery person in the morning.
and do not like it getting dark so early...
