Every year at this time, I go through the some past posts that have relevance to the season. There are so many fun things to do for Thanksgiving and the Autumn season, that I have not run out of ideas yet. But, new readers may not have seen these ideas from past years, so here is a round up of some ideas. First up, in 2014 I told a bunch of Thanksgiving stories from years gone by in Thanksgiving 101. I love reading your stories too!
From the first Autumn Jubilee, a Pumpkin and Leaf Table Topper with links to the unit patterns and more ways to put it together.
From 2015, How To Brine and Bake a Moist Succulent Turkey, and it doesn’t take as much as you think. I show you how to make room in the frig for it too.
Need a different pumpkin dessert for the big day? Try my Pumpkin Toffee Dump Cake.
How about some Chicken Chili for a filling meal on a cold day?
Or a Caramel Apple Coffee Cake for breakfast?
Then, make sure your home is guest ready with Getting Really Ready for Company. There are so many things to think about, and you might be surprised at what you find in your own home when you do one simple thing.
Make a holiday wreath for the front door, with this pine cone design – Harvest Wreaths – plus another wreath idea in that post.
Stamp some Thanksgiving cards for your family.
But most of all, hug your loved ones and enjoy the laughter of the everyday. Cherish the small moments, rejoice in being with your family and friends. It is a season of gratitude, which I often mention, like this post – Itadakimasu and Musings on Gratitude. If you were not a reader last February, I hope you will read that post on living in the world and in the moment. Thanksgiving is my favorite day of the year, a whole day of gratitude and I am looking forward to it next week. Yikes, it is next week!! Are you ready?
