It’s Thanksgiving Day and I did some baking, but otherwise I don’t think I’ve ever been less well prepared. The venison chili was good and we all managed to eat it, and then we watched Jeeves and Wooster, played Wii, and otherwise disported ourselves, not even bothering to clean the kitchen or wash the dishes. We didn’t make ice, put up a wreath, make a centerpiece, set the table, bathe the dogs, clean the bathroom, or indeed do any of the things that need to be done in preparation for Thanksgiving.

This Pilgrim lass is obviously not ready, either. She hasn’t even plucked her turkey yet. Even so, she is focusing on her pies with zen-like serenity while sending Thanksgiving Day greetings, so I will endeavor to do the same.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
