woke in my usual delightful condition...
walked into the front room to the sound of the phone jingling away...
Then realized ..positive is the focus..practice is the work...so..turning around I said....
I do not like being rushed in the AM..probably why I worked swing shift or even nites for years.
It takes me a while to get my world gathered into a group & sort out the ideas of the day.
Once done I am ok..but till then not good to jangle my cage..I might just bite!
So ..having gotten my blood count to about Folgers Dark Roast 85% I was ready for the day.
All went well till I decided to "multi-task"..sigh..
I started the cranberries on the stove..on low..I thought.
Then off to the office to tend to a "few" items..got caught up in those doing & flat forgot the
cranberries until a fog of smoke & wafting odor of burning fruit came trotting down the hall.
No escaping it..I scorched the cranberries..badly! The smoke alarm did not go off..scary! As
the house was filled with smoke! So opened windows..doors..turned on fans..at the cheerful
temp of 35 degrees , snow on the ground & a gentle breeze gusting thru the house! ahh
the joys of home cooking! Hee heee..took me hours to clean that pot! I did have more
cranberries & they are now cooked up & will be lovely tomorrow. I had to laugh at me..
I know better ..I get caught up in a project & all else ceases until I finish..sigh.
So ole Tom Turkey is waiting to spend some time warming up in the oven..the dressing is
good..did I mention I love dressing & cranberries! The meal is half done..will be great &
we have so very much to be grateful for. What a wonderful day I had...
Now I think I will tuck me in & wish everyone....
A Very Happy Thanksgiving Day...
