Thanksgiving Chalkboard and the Love of Pumpkin Pie

Happy November!

Can it really be November already?

Time sure does fly by.

I thought I'd drop in quickly today to share my 
dining room chalkboard with you.  
She's all set for Thanksgiving...



Although I'm no artist, 
I had some fun with this one.

Mind if I share a short story?

As I was on my step stool, chalking away,
my husband yells from the other room,

"In the time it's taking you to draw that pumpkin pie,
you could have made a pumpkin pie."

Then upon completion of my "masterpiece" I hear,

"It looks nice, but it could have looked
even better if it came with an actual 
pumpkin pie."

He's like living with a comedian, I tell you!! 

The question now is...
Should I make him wait until Thanksgiving Day
for pumpkin pie or not?
Hmmm.....

You say that you're no an artist, but it truly think you are! You don't give yourself the credit you deserve.
