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?


Welcome! I'm Gina. Like the header says, this blog is all about home, food and life..


  1. LOL- Make him wait-make him wait-make him wait.....nah-never mind.....I wouldn't make him wait either....lol

    Your chalk board looks great-but I could have EATEN a pumpkin pie while I was reading this!;>) xo Diana
