Julie Lyles Carr: Prepping....

Prepping....

You should see my kitchen this morning.
It's not pretty.

I'm throwing a Thanksgiving for sixteen tomorrow.

And my kitchen looks like I've already thrown it and also had a bunch of barbarians come in for dessert.

So I'd try to post something witty and pithy today.

But there's flour all over the floor.

And there are two turkeys brining.

Is brining a verb?

Well, it is now. You read it here first.

There are the remnants of the three dozen eggs I boiled and peeled last night.

So it's time for me to get a-crackin'. Because I'm told that kitchen floors shouldn't be crunchy.

But let's indulge in a little verse, shall we?

On the day before Thanksgiving, 1 of 8 said to me,
"Why are there two turkeys?"
On the day before Thanksgiving, 2 of 8 said to me,

"Can you make stuffing that's gluten-free?"

On the day before Thanksgiving, 3 of 8 said to me,

"Why does the whole house have to be cleaned?"

On the day before Thanksgiving, 4 of 8 said to me,

"Why do they call these things table 'leaves'?"

On the day before Thanksgiving, 5 of 8 said to me,

"How does all that turn into gravy?"

On the day before Thanksgiving, 6 of 8 said to me,

"Can I only eat the green beans?"

On the day before Thanksgiving, 7 of 8 said to me,

"Pinch...Bubby....me...."

On the day before Thanksgiving, 8 of 8 said to me,

"Me....Sissy pinch....sorry...."

On the day before Thanksgiving, The Boy said to me,

"Are we going to have that canned jelly cranberry thing?"

On the day before Thanksgiving, Michael said to me,

"Who cares if the kitchen floor is crunchy?"

On the day before Thanksgiving, I whispered to Thee,

"Lord, You are so good, so full of blessing."

Happy Prepping, y'all!
