Happy Saturday Friends, I know that many of you, like me, have family and friends coming in from out of town for Thanksgiving and you might just be doing what I've done all morning-fluffing up the nest, cleaning and making everything as nice as possible. So as I was working this morning I realized that somewhere in the last five years or so, a new chore has crept into my thinking. As I grew up I don't remember having many overnight guests for the holidays, except one cousin. I certainly don't remember my mother ironing the sheets for anyone so where did I get this habit that I've gotten into for the last number of years? My sweet mother-in-law always ironed sheets before guests arrive and our dear aunt, on hubby's side, in Mississippi always irons sheets for guests. I'm sure the aunt in Tennessee wanted to but probably just hung them out to dry which made them nice and crisp.
I know with modern technology-such as dryers, if you take them out immediately they might be wrinkle free but honestly we don't have guests that often so I just pull them from the shelves. So I have to ask do any of you find yourself doing things in preparation for guests that you never would have dreamed of?
Have a delightful day today; I will as I'm headed to the grocery store to stock up-and yes I already cleaned the fridge.
