Don’t look now but — shhh — one week from today is Thanksgiving. Isn’t it amazing how fast time flies between Halloween and Thanksgiving? Even more is how quickly the four weeks fly between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
We’re in the time of year that is the fastest and busiest at our house. Menu planning, decorating, gift buying, leaf raking, parties, events — it’s finally here.
Of course, we love it. My sister and I plan Thanksgiving, putting our ideas together as we make up the menu, and then implement it all with family and friends.
And then we all know what comes next. Black Friday! Sales, deals, people — Christmas shopping! It’s a tradition. We don’t trudge out super early but enjoy mingling in the mix of people with holiday music playing and the ching-ching of cash registers.
It is truly the most wonderful time of the year. One week to go … better get busy!
