A mop and a bucket

Well, Clay came home and sopped me up with a sponge and wrung me out at Bread Company. I ordered the butternut squash soup and then I spent the entire time I was eating it wishing I had ordered anything but. It was like a large bowl of baby food heated up with a bunch of brown sugar. Blehky.

Now let's see if I can give you something to smile about...

For Thanksgiving, I have to admit that I was very creative in the decorating department. I put a glass hurricane on a white salad plate, put about half a bag of coffee beans in the hurricane, stuck a candle in the beans, tied a bow around the outside of the hurricane and there you have a delicious smelling center piece.

Now, don't forget to blow out the candles when you're done with dinner or you might come back into the kitchen to see the coffee beans on fire and you might have to run the cute plate and blazing coffee beans to the sink and then the hurricane might burst into a few pieces.

Not that it happened, right? Thanks for the tip. ;)

(Sounds like a wicked cute centerpiece, though!)

Hey, I made a similar centerpiece for Thanksgiving this year, using a hurricane and our fossil rock collection for a base.

You totally have my sympathy about forgetting about the candles. I'm always leaving the stove on or something like that. I'll probably burn the house down someday.
