Now that I've returned to the land of the living (i.e. my NaNoWriMo project is finished), it's time to think about Thanksgiving.
My pantry is stocked with items to create a mouth-watering meal on Thursday. Although I plan to bake a turkey, I'm trying to convince Hubby to fry one, too. That would require mega safety precautions, unless of course, we want the fire department to join in the day's festivities.
Then there are all those Black Friday deals. Or should I call them the Black Thur-riday deals, since so many stores are opening on Thursday evening. On the news there are stories of people who have been camping in front of Best Buy for days. Even the mall is opening at midnight. Really? I'm all for getting a good deal, but unless somone is giving away free flat screen television sets, I think I can wait to shop.
We'll have two guest dogs in addition to the usual crew here for Thanksgiving. Indy and Bogey are looking forward to a feast, though I hasten to add this disclaimer...give very little (if any) table food to your critters. Rich foods create major tummy troubles that land many a dog or cat at the vet's office. And that's no way to kick off the holiday season.
And don't give in, even if they promise to run on the treadmill for treats.
