Thanksgiving Prep

Here we are just hours away from Thanksgiving Day.
I don't know about you, but I am happiest when in the kitchen preparing a meal
for family and friends.

Favorite recipes located and reviewed.

Lists  made.

Supplies gathered.

Favorite music loaded.

Have I not shared I am a huge fan of Willie Nelson?
Who did you think was sweet Willie's namesake?
It was those eleven years spent in Austin.

Oh, a story for another day.

I've chopped, stirred and baked most of the day.

It has been the best day!

Family is just an hour away, the guest room has been fluffed and a pot of comforting
chicken soup is simmering on the stove just waiting to served.

I hope you have had the day you hoped for today.
If you are traveling, be safe.   If your home may you be surrounded with peace and love.
And, may you wake tomorrow with thanksgiving in your heart.

Happy Thanksgiving dear readers.
