Today is Honey’s birthday. An honorable day to be sure! 8 people years/ 56 dog years and still holding strong.
November was once my favorite month because of my birthday; in my childhood days, I looked forward to this month because I could not wait to turn another year older. Ha! Stupid, youthful, Ruth—you never dreamed you would begin to hate gaining another year! But these days, I love November for a whole new set of reasons.
Firstly, my married children (3 out of 4) have all wed individuals with November birthdays. I often joke that I hate sharing my birthday month (you know, celebrations all month long—it’s a thing) with them but it just makes these 30 days all the more special.
Second, the weather will definitely turn this month. Cool, almost cold nights and crisp mornings that smell like damp leaves, cozy sweaters, fireplaces burning, warm cider simmering on the stove, pies baking in the oven, all of the senses are involved in the changing of the season.
Third, Thanksgiving is one of my all time favorite holidays. We host a crowd at our house and eat So. Much. Food. Card games are played (Oh Heck is a family tradition) and puzzles are assembled. We’ll take pictures, trying to secure the Christmas card image. Oh, and the Turkey Trot is definitely happening. It’s all family goodness packed into a couple of days. And it’s all about giving thanks because we have so much to be thankful for in this country.
Let’s do this, November! I’m ready.
Thanksgiving items are available to order online. Please order these items separately from your weekly menu items. Also making their debut at the online site are the Holiday goodies. Feel free to add these at any time, but keep in mind that for the gift boxes & platters, we may need more notice than 24 hours.
We have a great soup on the menu this week and breakfast is available to order through Sunday. I am here for your questions – Ruth 214/675-1932.
