Gratitude - Day 26 Random Randomness

Today I am thankful for Pumpkin Pie. It's baking in the oven right now and making my house smell like Thanksgiving like nothing else can. It's not a special recipe, just the one off the back of the Libby's Pumpkin can. Because that's what I had growing up which, obviously, makes it the best.

I'm thankful for Clara who has been walking around the house with a quarter all day singing "My money, my money, I love my money" to the tune of The Bunny song from Veggie Tales. Which is just so completely opposite of what Big Idea was trying to teach with that episode I just can't stop laughing at it. Which just makes her keep doing it, my little oblivious idolatress.

And I wrote a post over at Worst Mama today about the Second Hand Christmas theme I am doing this year. And I am thankful for that too. Even if it has elicited some strange looks.

Oh and to beat a dead horse (or dead contest as it may be) tomorrow is the last day to enter the Superhero Cape drawing so go leave a comment if you are interested. Your odds are looking pretty good.

I'm reading post after post about pumpkin pie! I hope yours is delicious and heartily approve of your plan to have it for breakfast tomorrow. Recipes are forthcoming - I got my kitchen (and, hence, my recipe box) unpacked today! If I forget, egg me to send you Frauke's Hot Turkey Salad recipe. It is the reason I once roasted a turkey in June, so I'd have leftovers to make the salad with. And this year, when the kids found out we weren't going to have a turkey, Ross choked out, "What?? How will we have Frauke's after thanksgiving turkey thing?"
