Thanksgiving Decor? HAHA Yeah Right!

It’s T minus four days until Canadian Thanksgiving (yep, we do it in October!). Last year we hosted Thanksgiving and at this point in the week I was busy planning the Thanksgiving menu, and decorating the house with festive fall decor.

This year my kitchen is covered in drywall dust, my stove is in the middle of the kitchen, my pots & pans are in an Ikea bag in the basement, and my dining table is covered in building supplies & tools.


Are we hosting Thanksgiving this year? Not a hope! Have I decorated, or even purchased a mum for the front door? No siree.

Is my front door coat rack/mantle sporting a summer painting and a half dead plant? YEP. Is my garden mostly dead, and including a bunch of rotting tomatoes? YEP. Am I wearing mismatched socks today, and did I polyurethane things sitting on the kitchen floor last night in my PJ’s with a drink in my hand? YEP.


For any family planning to stop by this holiday weekend. Keep your shoes on, and bring your work clothes. I need some stuff sanded and painted. K? Thanks!
