Turkey Time: 33 days to go and counting…

20 Oct

It’s a nondescript Sunday afternoon here in New York City.   Gary is working from home for a report due tomorrow, and, I really didn’t feel like doing anything specific.  Sometimes I simply enjoy some “down” time, and, I enjoy catching up on things like blogging.

I’m also a little shocked as I look at my date book.  EEEKKK!!!  November is creeping up really fast, and, both my family and Gary’s family are coming to NYC for Thanksgiving.  So, I guess my next chore — well it really isn’t a “chore” in the truest sense of the word, but, rather I mean get my act together, and, start making a menu and activity plan.

turkeyAirlines and hotels are in place.  Radio City Christmas show tickets are bought.  Menu… Well, obviously turkey (but I do need to order one from the butcher), additionally, I also need to think about sides and a vegan main dish.  (I’m thinking that something with Quinoa will be the way to go.)

I also need to think about decorating.  My family likes the Christmas tree up for Thanksgiving, so, I will be in a mad scramble trying to get ornaments and decorations.  We (meaning Gary and I) lost a lot of our Christmas things last year due to Superstorm Sandy (we had those things in our storage area of our building, and, we had to throw a lot (in fact most everything) away, and, since everyone else was in the same boat the pickings were slim last year.

So why am I sitting writing in my blog instead of getting my butt out the door to Macys?  Good question 🙂  Perhaps I should go see what I can find today.  In fact, I think I will…
