Thank You, Planner People

In honor of Thanksgiving, I'd like to thank all of my Loyal Readers and the entire planner community for all the support and joy that you bring to my life.

In homes across America, people are baking pies to prepare for Thanksgiving dinner. I am going beyond that, setting out seating and ingredients, waiting for the turkey to brine, defrosting the ham, cooking rice and sweet potatoes to rewarm in the morning, and prechopping as many vegetables as possible.




In my planner, I have a two page spread of today's pre-feast tasks (with a 27 next to it as today's date) and tomorrow's cooking schedule.


My husband is busily washing kitchen towels and table linens and setting up folding chairs.

My children are given a chore each time they enter the kitchen, so they are hiding in the room. (I'm pretty sure they both have really high IQs.)

My guests are all bringing a dish.

Today's lesson? Work together to get things done.


Enjoy your turkey.

(For my European friends, you should try pecan pie! Visit and I'll make you some.)

Etcetera.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. I have so many things to be thankful for and just as you are thankful for your readers I am thankful for you. You have helped me very much over the last couple of months as I've re-entered the world of keeping a paper planner.
