I went to Walmart on Monday, and they were playing Christmas music! Ugh. I am starting the "Save Thanksgiving" campaign. I HATE that Thanksgiving gets totally overrun by Christmas. I love Thanksgiving. The cook in me loves cooking so much food. The glutton in me loves eating all the glorious food. I also hate that Christmas has become totally commercialized and not about Christ at all, but that is another topic entirely. I love the harvest themes of Thanksgiving. I am totally bringing the Thanksgiving tablecloth with me to my mom's house. I don't care if it doesn't fit her table, though I think it probably will.
I am freaking out a little about how close Thanksgiving is. I have set a bunch of deadlines for myself of stuff I want done before then- like Christmas shopping for my family so we can take the gifts with us instead of shipping them, baking bread, making pumpkin pie filling. I try not to stress about it. I also need to make at least one diaper to see if it works, because Jo-Ann's is having a sale on suedeclothe next week, which I have been informed makes excellent diaper interiors and is MUCH cheaper than the other options I have pursued (at least while it is on sale). So I have a lot of sewing and shopping and general home-making in my future. Then after Thanksgiving, I can rest for a while, though I do have a new tablecloth I want to make for Christmas. I don't want to give it away, but I am excited for the pattern I chose. (Why do tablecloths make me happy? I don't know. I don't want to know.)
