Wednesday, Thanksgiving eve

     Crazy here, people all over.  Daughter #2 will be home this afternoon.  In-laws in spare room/bath.  Girls in renters room downstairs with bath.  We are in our own room, with bath so why is my bathroom covered with curling irons and make up bags, and used towels and dirty underwear? (not mine)  I have little Claire here this morning also.  Cats, dogs, kids, in-laws got to love it.
     I put up most of the new hardware in downstairs bath last night.  I still need to hang the mirror and get the new mirror hung on the back of the door. I will also hang two new towel racks in spare bath upstairs and a new mirror in hall way.  My father-in-law came down last night and he was so shocked that all the old hardware was off and the new installed.  Hubby watched PBS all night.  I told him I have never had any help with anything before why would I expect it now?  Hubby is out raking leaves this morning, I think he was shamed into it! :)
     I removed most of the towel holders when kids were young, but I can put them back now.  Jane and I can take care of ourselves.
     I am going to finish hanging things and try not to hang myself in the process although it is tempting.  Then I am going to make the squash, sweet potatoes, pies(apple,cherry, peach,pumpkin), the relish tray, cheese ball,and stuff the turkey tonight.  That way I only have to reheat and do rolls tomorrow as the turkey roasts.  I have a DCS convection/microwave that is such a blessing this time of year.  My brother purchased it at a scratch and dent sale from a high end cooking store.  He is a gourmet.  He then did not have room for it in his newer place so I got it!  Yeah for me!
      It is nice to be able to cook a large dinner like this and see all the things that we have produced ourselves on the table.  Squash, onions,apples,pumpkin, cherries, peaches,eggs,bread, rolls,carrots, I am a scratch cook and it shows on my husband!
     To all of my special blogging friends, have a precious and wonderful Thanksgiving, don't eat yourself sick and know that I am grateful for all of your support.

     Have a lovely Thanksgiving
