Getting Ready to Celebrate

This is the part of the holiday I love the best. The preps! I am lucky and our school district gives us the Wed before Thanksgiving off. Something about, since they close the University so the kids can go home, all the other schools close too. Heck, I will take it for whatever reason. :) It gives me a whole day of being home, and getting the things done that make the holiday what it is for my family. 

We have a nice rainy day today. Feels cozy. I got to sleep in, leisurely sip my coffee and now it begins. The baking, the cleaning, the cooking. And I revel in it all! What fun! The house all to myself, nice and quiet. Later I may turn on some Fallish music, and decide on how to decorate the table for tomorrow. But for now, I will listen to the rain drops and enjoy the smell of cranberrys and pumpkin pie. :) Always, Kit
