I am not doing much in the way of Thanksgiving decorations this year. We will not be home for dinner and I am trying to get a whole lot of projects done around the Cottage that, if we were smart, would have been well suited to leave until another time of year.
We are also spending New Year's in San Diego so will not be doing a whole lot of Christmas decorating either. It breaks my heart, but since we will be spending Christmas with the kids, then rushing home to take down decorations before leaving for the trip, so that we don't come home in February to all that entails, this is just the way it is this year.
This is a little Amish family that we picked up years ago at a country antique show we did...
This is how the Captain and I were dressed for that country antique show when we picked up the little Amish family...
We were supposed to dress up as fitting for the time of year and since they were simple costumes, easy to sew, this is what we chose.
I will leave you today with some words of wisdom that you might be well put to remember when you gather 'round the table on Thanksgiving Day...
"I ate too much turkey,
I ate too much corn,
I ate too much pudding and pie,
I'm stuffed up with muffins
And much too much stuffin',
I'm probably going to die.
I piled up my plate
And I ate and I ate,
But I wish I had known when to stop,
For I'm so crammed with yams,
Sauces, gravies, and jams
That my buttons are startin' to pop.
I'm full of tomatoes
And French fried potatoes,
My stomach is swollen and sore,
But there's still some dessert,
So I guess it won't hurt..
If I eat just a little bit more."
