This morning I was up early. Why is it on school days it kills me to hear the alarm at 4:15, but now that I'm off I wake up without it at 4:13? Anyway, I got up and made my first pumpkin pie of the season. I usually make a couple of pies over the Thanksgiving holiday, but this year we have reservations for dinner so I won't be making pies. I'm not quite sure how I feel about that yet. This will be the first year since I have been baking the pies for Thanksgiving that I won't be baking a pecan pie.
Hmmmmmmm... Hadn't thought about that one.
Nevertheless, I am looking forward to spending the week with family. I wish I could say with confidence that this will absolutely, positively be the last Thanksgiving without Polar Cub, but after last week nothing is certain. I will continue to hope, dream, and pray that she'll be here next year to eat her first piece of pumpkin pie!
