Confetti Anyone?

Apparently I hit a milestone yesterday with my 100th post. Almost a quarter of those posts were from this month alone due to NaBloPoMo. While I'm happy to be back in the posting groove, I'm looking forward to the end of this month!

The painters arrived on schedule this morning (darn!). Before they got busy tearing things apart, I had my son sit down and trace the "growth chart" that we started for the kids shortly after moving into the house. That small section of the wall is something I've been fretting about leaving for quite some time. As luck would have it, the workers were able to peel off the wallpaper in one long piece so I will be able to take that part of our family's history with us to Michigan.

My kitchen and dining area are turned upside down at the moment, but I think we will manage just fine tomorrow with our Thanksgiving dinner. We'll be watching the Macy's parade in the morning and then the dog show that comes on afterwards before getting down to the business of cooking. It makes for a nice long, relaxed kind of day that I thoroughly enjoy.

Safe journey to those of you traveling, and everyone please have a happy Thanksgiving filled with peace and plenty!

Hey bud. Your kind of day sounds like mine too. Turkey's in the oven and we'll eat when it's beginning to get dark. I love quiet days like this with food to look forward to.

Btw, saw the parade too and then the kids watched "Miracle on 34th Street". Ain't it grand!??!?
