Clump #269: De-clump paper pile; day twenty-seven of National Blog Posting Month.
The one thing you kind of forget when committing to the post-every-day challenge in November is a little thing called Thanksgiving. This Thanksgiving was the year of the Pie-fecta: my husband’s Apple-Pumpkin-Pecan Pie. The Turducken of the pie world. I confess I wasn’t expecting to like it, but was won over by the yummy combination of flavors and textures.
And wasn’t it enough of a clump to get the pies made, the feast carried over the river and through the Amish farmland to be with our grandmother/mom? Well, we had the easy part of the meal, with lots of help. This is my very obliging niece, lovely enough to make the silly turkey hat look good.
Later I had just enough time and energy to haul out a clump of papers and bust through them.
In today’s issue of The Philadelphia Inquirer I enjoyed a spoof of the typical “holiday tips” lists that I’m attracted to like a moth to a flame.
I loved the advice below on how to “distract guest from the clutter you were too lazy to pick up.”
Is the picture a little out of focus, or is it the fog machine I’ve fired up? Hope your day was festive and fun!
