so yea. stuff happened. lots of it. i’m tired. but there’s still lots to do!

here’s where the thanksgiving to-do list stands:

1. build a table. (part way done. cut, laid out and glued, but needs to be assembled, sanded then waxed)

2. finish painting dresser in basement work room so table can be built (primer and one coat of paint are on)

3. build and upholster a dining table bench (that’s looking like a last-minute to-do)

4. buy fabric for said bench

5. buy two end chairs for table

6. sew table runner (don’t think i will get to the matching napkins)

7. figure out menu

8. buy turkey

9. figure out how to make turkey (googling to occur still. or you can give me your tried and true method. hint hint.)

10. create “tablescape” (things have begun, but not too much)

11. clean (wednesday)

12. fold and put away the mountain of clothes on the guest bed

13. buy and hang new shade for guest room

14. grocery shop

15. cook!

progress happened, bitches. (that’s for you, sarah and amy).

how was your weekend? did you have a long to-do list? do things like figuring out how to sew mitered corners make you way too excited than you should be? (like me)

have a great week!

  1. I will always use Alton Brown’s brine recipe and turkey- baking method (search foodtv.com). Super simple– brine, butter, bake at 500, then 350 to an internal temperature of 161. Foolproof, and superb results every time!
