I was not wrong when I thought Kai would be enthralled by the x-rays on the light table. She’s been going back to look at them all week and naming all her body parts.

As I pulled out things for our harvest meal, I’m also pulling down all our winter paraphernalia. As soon as the table is clear on Saturday, we decorate for winter.
In order to do that and not have chaos, I stage each box of goodies in the guest room. I’m pretty meticulous by nature so every box is labeled and organized, but every year I dig through them and make sure only the stuff I want to decorate with comes out after harvest.
The only thing I don’t do in advance is test light strips, because that’s my husband’s job! It just frustrates me.
It also means that I know what we’re missing before we need it. Like this year, we have a fireplace and a mantle! I mostly have things that can be repurposed for this space, but I have also been keeping an eye out for the two or three things we would like (stocking hangers!)
Head, Hands, Heart was coined by Charles Voysey in 1896 and became the motto of the Arts and Crafts Movement.
Do what you can and confess frankly what you are unable to do. -John Ruskin
We are spending Turkey Day with my sister and her family. There is a turkey smoking outside, pies in the oven and more appetizers than I know what to do with. More importantly there is love, and family, and joy.
