Zeus and Smudge Welcome You to Thanksgivingtime

It’s after 5pm on Thanksgiving Eve, so we are officially in Thanksgivingtime, in which the early foodstuffs are being prepared so that there will be room in the oven tomorrow for the turkey and other things that need to be made on the day. So cakes and pies and certain casseroles that are reheatable: tonight is your night. Zeus and Smudge celebrate your moment.

For everyone who is trying to get somewhere for Thanksgiving in the middle of a bomb cyclone: Best wishes to you, and may you get where you’re going with a minimum of fuss and disruption. Enjoy your time with family and friends tomorrow. You deserve it.

  1. They want to inform you they have dibs on the giblets for the gravy.
    A pan of brownies for tomorrow’s dessert and sweet potato casserole will be prepped tonight. Cornbread will be baked tomorrow, as will the ham; other food items will come with the guests.

  3. Hope Griffin Diaz – North Carolina – So, to borrow from a popular shirt, I love Jesus but I cuss a little. Well, a lot. In fact, I just don't believe Jesus really gives a shit about the word fuck. He does care if you say f you or go f yourself. But a general adjective? Nah. I am married to the love of my life, Louie (aka Luis) and have an adult child, Christy. My mum, Nancy, is still with us and active in our lives. I love to read, I fancy myself an amateur gardener, I am owned by a large black purr machine maine coon cat named Samwise aka #SamSam and a Border Collie/Australian Cattle dog mix named Daisy. I knit. I craft. I sew. These are at my leisure and are hobbies. I don't take commissions nor do I do alterations. I'm an aspiring human being. I battle several mental illnesses including depression, major panic disorder, agoraphobia, germaphobia, claustrophobia, and some other assorted illnesses. I also have fibromyalgia and have had numerous traumatic brain injuries (into the double digits now). I am not able to drive at night. I don't know where this blog is going ... if anywhere.

    Please give them kisses! The cats, not the turkey. Kissing raw turkey is bad

  4. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. I don’t have to worry about cooking because I’m going to my brother’s house. I did make him some caldo verde soup though. Working tonight and hopefully I’ll be able to get a couple hrs sleep in the morning.

  5. We don’t have Thanksgiving in Australia, which I think is our loss. A holiday where you do nothing but sit around and eat and drink to excess? I think I could live with that.

  6. Thanks for your good wishes and right back at ya’.
    Also, this is one of three websites where I am also thankful for the commentariat. Thanks everyone.

  7. A friend of ours is hostessing and cooking Thanksgiving this year, which is wonderful by me. Dinner fixed by someone else and hanging out with friends sounds like a great holiday. She’s not a baker, so I volunteered to make a pumpkin-pecan pie which is sitting on the counter ready to go.

    Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

  8. Love the handsome tuxedo boys all ready to help with the food prep! I am sure they’ll find a way to cadge a nibble or two.

    I’m spending Thanksgiving painting the kitchen. Our family has reached the point that there are multiple celebrations with multiple groups (kid & spouse go to spouse’s family dinner today, niece & nephew celebrate with their father’s family today) so we moved our meal to the Saturday after, when we’ll gather at my sibling’s house about 130 miles away. It’s less stressful all round, and people don’t need to try to squeeze in two giant meals in a single day, plus then I have the full day to either put up holiday decorations or do projects like painting the kitchen.

    I wish you, your family, your cats, and all the visitors to this site a very joyful feast of family, food and fun, and I hope you have much for which to be thankful.
