    You’ve collected some excellent ideas for Thanksgiving–a couple of which I will be filing away for future years. This year we’ve decided to just skip Thanksgiving, lol. Not the thankfulness part, just the stressed part. I’m baking a turkey and that’s about it. Nice link-up today. I enjoyed visiting several sites and learning a few good things.
