Stuff I was Thinking About
I was walking around with my camera trying to get
pictures of the last of the leaves, before the wind
comes and the next storm. I found this bunch with
all colors and I thought it was so nice a fallish.
I have the house mostly decorated now. All except
the Christmas tree. My daughter had to work today,
and her favorite thing of the year is watching Dad fight
with the Christmas tree so we have to wait. It isn't
nearly as much fun since we got a fake tree.
The kids enjoyed it when we would get 15 foot trees,
with a 10 foot ceiling. Then to watch the boys wrestle it
in the house, and what was even more fun was trying
to get the tree in the Christmas tree stand.
The house with it's Christmas tree lights up tonight.
It always makes me so happy at night to drive around
town and see Christmas lights on houses.
I also wanted to tell you that I soaked the turkey in brine for the first
time. I think it was the best turkey ever. It was moist and had
really good flavor. I think that will be the way I will do turkeys
from now on. I might try experimenting with different flavors.
But that was a good thing to try. It had amazing results.
We were outside putting up the Christmas lights and
next door is a old garage. It is the only original building left
from when the place was homesteaded. These wild
kitties have decided that it is their house. The were really
interested in what we were doing so they sat in the window
and watched. My son got the camera and they let
him get real close. My sister-in-law feeds them.
I know that is why she hasn't fixed the window, so they
have some place to get in out of the cold.
I already have a cat from this extended family.
They are nice cats with nice personalities, my son
and his family took one of the family to be their cat.
In this picture, you can see the third cat. I didn't
know that there was three cats until I looked at the
picture close up.
I hope that you have a lovely Saturday.
