Think: I love this about taking are of what you have. Something to think about as we near Thanksgiving.
Make: Looking for some handmade inspiration? Every November, I love to follow Sew Mama, Sew's Handmade Holiday postings. For the entire month of November, they post an assortment of gifts that you can make with a theme. For example, Nov 1st was Gifts for Little Kids. I not only use this to think of gifts to make for Christmas, but also reference it for the upcoming year.
Cook: I recently found out that I have to follow a nut free/peanut free diet, which poses a problem particularly when it comes to lunch! I can't wait to try Lunch Without Nuts: 19 Simple Ideas for Peanut-Free Lunches, from One Crafty Place. Lots of original ideas, even if you can eat nuts.
Entertain: With the holidays ahead, there is a lot of entertaining to prepare for. And not just the main event. If you have guests coming, you have to feed them before and after Thanksgiving dinner too! Check out this Guide to What to Cook When Company Comes from Life In Grace. What a wonderful list of recipes! She also did a whole month long of tips for October on Hospitality which are thoughtful and useful.
Hope this finds everyone safe and warm. Hoping that we all have an uneventful and dry week ahead!
