Now that the election is over, the leaves have fallen and the weather’s cooling, it’s time to turn my attention to the upcoming holidays. There is no shortage of tradition to keep me adequately busy, but, I always like to try a little something new to keep life interesting.
Thanksgiving is coming up first and we’ll be having it at our house. Although several of our children will be with other family that day, we still have plenty of family coming to eat the turkey dinner we have planned. The only break with tradition we’ll have on that day will be that Mark and I will be sharing the cooking duties. My sweetie has become a fine cook and a tremendous help in the kitchen. Obviously, the now famous butterhorn rolls will be on the menu!
I’m getting things ready for Christmas and am asking for all of the wish lists and doing a bunch of online shopping. The cantata music being delivered and we’ll start practicing in choir this week. We’ve adopted our families and are making our plans for how to share our blessings with others.
I’m determined to take the time to really enjoy the holidays with my family, my work family and my church family this year. Each day should be something special to look forward to, not for the gifts, but for the closeness and the memories we can make.
So, get ready for the turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie. I can hardly wait!
