Space Cowboys

Me: "Okay, I'm going to the store to pick up our turkey."
Logan: "Why, when's thanksgiving?"
Me: "Really?"
Quinn: "You're getting a turkey?"
Me: "Um, yes, it's thanksgiving in two days and we always have turkey."
Quinn: "Oh, I always thought we were eating chicken."

And so the hormonal drugging continues. On another note, I have selected all the recipes for thanksgiving AND I even got all the shopping done. Unfortunately, I have no time to prepare any of these menu items as we are super busy getting our new store built, but fortunately, my mum comes into town today, soooooo, she'll be busy!

Another day

Logan: "Are pumpkins involved with Thanksgiving?"
Me: "Pumpkin pie!"
Logan: "Awesome. Are we going to have some?"
Me: "Logan, we've served it every year!"

Morning surprise

Just to make the logistics of preparing for a Thanksgiving-- that I've given little thought to -- a little more tricky, mother nature decided to offer up a dusting of snow. Now in most parts of the country, snow is just a matter of fact, but here in the Pacific Northwest, we SHUT DOWN. No one seems to know how to drive or maneuver on slippery roads, and so I will most likely be walking our turkey home from the market rather than risk getting hit in the parking lot. Part of the adventure, I suppose...

No closer

Well, I'm still no closer to figuring out what to serve for Thanksgiving, other than pomegranate gravy. I know we'll have fondue (it's a staple amongst us Swedes) and wine, of course, but beyond that it's still a guess. If you happen to see a manic woman wheeling about the grocery store on Thursday morning, it will most likely be me. I'll probably be muttering some obscenities yet all the while feeling grateful and thankful for my rich and wonderful life.
