COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 35 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 10 DAYS
Happy Overly October! Today is a Thursday folks and a MILESTONE one at at that. Let's get right to it. We have 35 days remaining until Thanksgiving & 10 days to go until Halloween. Today we have reached the HOME STRETCH TO NOVEMBER! Hard to believe isn't it? Well it's serious. And let me tell you the weekly count to Thanksgiving sits at 5 now. Oh boy. Our next milestone will happen on Monday as we reach our 11th (and final) 26th before Thanksgiving. And we will retire that milestone as we move on to bigger and better things in 2021 with "Tom Turkey Day". The poll for this week is as follows:
How would you rank the following things that happen in November?
Thanksgiving Eve, Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday, Thanksgiving Weekend
For me it would be: Thanksgiving Day, Thanksgiving Eve, Black Friday, Thanksgiving Weekend.
That's the order I would put them in. How about you? Notice how they're all 5 days in a row. It's amazing that stretch...maybe the most amazing stretch of the year. Let us know your response. Have a great Overly October!
I don't do Black Friday either. Never have. But I do like the excitement it drives. The fridge is full of leftovers for every meal so there's no reason to leave.1) Thanksgiving Day
2) Thanksgiving Eve
3) Thanksgiving Weekend
4) Black Friday
I don't do Black Friday....I stay far, FAR away.
During this Bers season I've been trying to do something "Fallish or Halloweenish" each day. That has helped in making things slow down. But it's still going by too fast. What's a fella supposed to do?Isn't it funny how we find ourselves spending so much time counting down to our beloved Holidays, but then when the counts start looking a little skinny, like this one, we want to slow down time some? Well that's me. Once I made it to the best part of the year, I wanted things to slow down. September was gone way too quickly. October has lagged at times, but in general has moved too quickly for my liking. My hope now is that November and December go slow. But I think deep down we know why these months go so fast. And that is because we love them so much. But that means they are special.
I have never heard of that but sounds so good!The final 26th, how exciting, I have acquired my turkey for Thanksgiving and my ham for Christmas, now just a few more weeks to make sure I have everything else I need for November 26th. Has anybody here ever made or tried Butternut Mac and Cheese? I am thinking of giving it a try for Thanksgiving Day. Have a great weekend!
