Too tired to think straight, I’ve been in the kitchen or near it for 16 hours. Needless to say my day will roll smoothly tomorrow with 95% of the work already done, all I have to do is relax, drink coffee and eat. I thought I’d just do a quick “my day in numbers” post because I can’t do anything else. Well I did write a haiku this morning which I’ll share with you at the end of this post. Feel free to leave your Thanksgiving Haikus in the comments, the syllables go 5-7-5 if you need a reminder.
three-the number of times I swept the kitchen floor
57–how many trips the squirrel made to the apple tree hauling off bits of apples we didn’t pick especially so the wild ones could have a feast
57–the number of failed plots by cats too lazy to haul their butts out the cat door and stop the squirrel
eight-the number of windows I washed with the best window washing technique EVER, seriously I have 3 huge picture windows and they are absolutely squeaky clean
5–our desserts for tomorrow, 2 pumpkin rolls, Chess Pie, Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie
14–good ideas from friends on Facebook for one extra pie crust I happen to have quiche, mini quiche, mini pecan pie bites, pot pie bites, turkey pot pie and a pirok—yeah my friends are pretty damn good at eating!
4–pounds of butter thawed and used today
2–how many turkeys I wrangled today
