This week is Thanksgiving, a time to spend with family. We will be closed Wednesday afternoon so that our staff can prepare for the holiday. There are pies to bake, turkeys to brine and families to visit.
We will also be closed Thursday and Friday. We will be back in the office Monday morning making sure that your orders get shipped. If you need an order shipped this week, you are running out of time. Get it submitted soon! We will be trying to ship everything through Tuesday evening by Wednesday noontime. Any orders placed after Tuesday at midnight will not be shipped until the following week. Thank you for your understanding and have a great and safe Thanksgiving.
Martin Luther King Day is a federal holiday observed on the third Monday in January. In 2014, it falls on Jan. 20. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, also known as Civil Rights Day, is a very special and important day.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'”
This encourages each and everyone of us across this nation to come together and to serve our neighbors and communities. The MLK Day of Service is part of the United We Serve, the President’s national call to service initiative. All Americans are asked to work together and provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.
As today is Civil Rights Day, there are some important announcements that need to be made. Today, the Post Office is closed. No orders will ship if they have been ordered using this method. If you are waiting for an order through USPS, they will not deliver today. Check your mail box tomorrow! UPS is open today and we will ship all orders that use a UPS shipping method and UPS is making deliveries today.
Thank you and what ever activity you choose to do today, have a wonderful day!
Today is the day before Thanksgiving so we are here working until noon – processing your orders.
Any order received by 7:00 am MST will be shipped out today!
Be sure to select Next Day Air if you want your order delivered by Friday.
We sure work fast around here; that’s because we are reserving our afternoon to prepare for tomorrow! Thanksgiving! One of my favorite things to do (besides eating pies) is to make pies for this fabulous turkey day. What are some of your favorite items to prepare or eat on Thanksgiving?
I would like to share with you one of MMS delicious pie recipes, it is a recipe for Blackberry Pie! Yummy! This recipe was presented by Andee back in 2009. Click on the link or do a quick search for blackberry pie on blog.thesage.com to see the complete directions and how beautiful this pie looks. I need to ask Andee to help me with my pie edges. Hers came out perfect! Andee says “the resulting crust is out of this WORLD!” This crust may be prepared up to two day in advanced, what a convenient way to prepare for Pie Day!
