      June Supporter Giveaway   06/01/2019

      For the June giveaway I chose the theme 'The Gift of Reading.' One that I think we can all appreciate! The winner will receive four books, including:     The Gifts of Reading by Robert MacFarlane - 'An essay on the joy of reading, for anyone who has ever loved a book.'   plus three little short but (hopefully) thought provoking reading gifts...   The Reckoning by Edith Wharton - 'Two moving stories of love, loss, desire and divorce, from one of the great chroniclers of nineteenth-century New York life.' Create Dangerously by Albert Camus - 'Camus argues passionately that the artist has a responsibility to challenge, provoke and speak up for those who cannot in this powerful speech, accompanied here by two others.' It Was Snowing Butterflies by Charles Darwin - 'A selection of Darwin's extraordinary adventures during the voyage of the Beagle.'    As always, supporting members will be entered automatically into the random draw at the end of the month. If you want to be entered into the draw but don't support yet, you can do so here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum   Good luck

Thanksgiving plans

Recommended Posts

I don't celebrate Thanksgiving myself - since I'm from the Netherlands and all that - but I'd like to hear from others on the forum (ie. from those in the US) if they have any Thanksgiving plans.

We used to do a big celebration but have pretty much just settled for a quiet day with out a lot of food prep. When we first moved here about three years ago, I set out to make a Thanksgiving dinner. I had purchased the food stuffs and had prepped the turkey. I got up the next morning and warmed up the oven, opened the door and attempted to put the roasting pan into the oven. It. Did. Not. Fit. I was pissed, lol! The roasting pan was just a bit too big to close the oven door (wall unit) and after that, I just didn't care! I left the rest of the meal plan up to my menfolk. It got easier and easier to not celebrate it as our family was scattered. We won't be doing anything this year either as all our extra funds and time will be getting us prepared to move in a mere few weeks. Christmas will be were we expend our energy.

 from Thanksgiving is possibly my favorite Holiday of the year. A time to give thanks (and I have much to be thankful for), a time to relax and enjoy a wonderful dinner, a time for family, and a time for football watching :).

 

We will have family coming from long distances to share Thanksgiving with us.......from Florida, Colorado, and Oregon.,

 

Our dinner will consist of turkey, ham, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, peas, baked corn, cornbread stuffing, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, dinner rolls, apple pie, pumpkin pie, and red and white wine. And probably some that I have forgot. :)
