Thawing the Bird....

My Thanksgiving Preparation wish for you....
May your turkey be slip-free and fully thawed, may your cranberries gel, may your buns be light and golden,  may your mashed potatoes be fluffy and your gravy without lumps, and may your pumpkin pies have flaky crusts and firm centers.  And above all, I wish you a little time for a cup of tea or mug of coffee and a moment to breathe deeply and give thanks.

Ah! on Thanksgiving day....
When the care-wearied man seeks his mother once more,
And the worn matron smiles where the girl smiled before.
What moistens the lips and what brightens the eye?
What calls back the past, like the rich pumpkin pie?
~John Greenleaf Whittier


  1. May your turkey land in the pan, and may your pies be perfect. Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. Oh my...the kids and I had a good laugh! Too funny!! Hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving.


  3. Jody, you are funny. I finally remembered to start thawing my bird. I wish you a very blessed day.

  4. I loved everything about this post!! Including the new header... Have a fabulous day yourself!

  5. We are so thankful for the turkey in the refrigerator!
    It's thawed!
    You find the best literary connections, Jody! You are one of my favorite teachers.

  6. I sat here and laughed, I know this is in my future. My husband looked at me over breakfast and asked" Well are you ready to brine that turkey?"
    So I will be like that lady with the water in the sink. I just hope I don't drop it.
    Have a lovely Thanksgiving with your family.
    Blessings to you from me.

  7. Hilarious!! Thanks for the laugh - good thing my Thanksgiving is over and I don't have to wrestle with a turkey. Al least until Christmas!

    Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration!
