"Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and attend to your own business and work with your hands........" 1 Thessalonians 4:11

The wind is roaring outside and beating on the door and walls of the house

as a cold front pushes itself in for a couple of days........
It is a good day to make a pie and some bread for the day's lunch..........
In the center of my kitchen, I have an old wood  table,
it reminds me of the one my grandmother use to have in her
and it serves as an "island" of sorts to 
make all kinds of dishes
and great for rolling doughs out on. 
What kind of workspace do you like to use?
When I am not baking, I like to use the table for a morning brunch
and I keep a baked dessert or cake on it
for the day's nibblers to enjoy
My stove is another great space........not just for cooking and baking,
but is wonderful to warm and to get bread dough to
rise, especially on cold days as today.

I have made some dinner rolls for lunch and some "hamburger buns"
for a later dinner.
This time of year, I get anxious about the weather because
I want Thanksgiving day to be a pretty and comfortable day.
I have guests who are driving and flying in......
so I  do not want snowy weather.
I have checked the weather report for the next few days and 
it looks like we will have temps at 66 for the day.
Not too hot.........not too cold
sounds like a perfect and comfortable day!
After a large meal, everyone can take a nice walk
or go outside to catch up with visiting!
How about you?  Are you cooking the Thanksgiving meal this year?
Do you have a large workspace or table to make your treats?
What kind of weather do you like...........and what kind of 
weather are you anticipating for Thanksgiving?
Whether it's just a few folks at your table........or more
Whether it be freezing weather or pleasant,
here's wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
