Meanderings on a Monday

Happy first day of December.  Also known as Cyber Monday.  Which just followed Black Friday and Small Business Saturday.  So many titles.  So little time…..

before Christmas!

Anyhow…..

We went to DC for Thanksgiving…

Had a great time….

caught a cold….Have not got a lot of energy or sarcasm at the moment, so I’m just putting up some pics…..

 

Cooking
We had a wee kitchen to work in.
turkey
But still made a great turkey. Used an infrared oil-less turkey fryer out on the patio!
family
Here we all are. Maggie is looking adorable on the couch.  And I have no idea why Andrew suddenly donned that apron.  Some kind of tradition, I guess…

Too much turkey for Maggie?
Mattie the cattie
And here’s Mattie the Cattie! Lest you think we poisoned both the cat and the dog, there’s a roaring fireplace right behind Mattie that made both of the pets pass out!

More photos tomorrow of our adventures in DC!  If I can wake up long enough to pull the photos off of my camera and write something snarky.  Yeah, that’s the word for the week. Snarky.

Back at it tomorrow!

 

Bits and Pieces for a Friday

It was cold here this week.  Not Buffalo NY cold.  But bitta…..bitta cold for Florida! We woke up to temperatures in the 30s on two days.  And that’s enough of that!

Okay.  Let me explain this picture.  I'm not used to wearing socks.  Come on, it's never under 50 here.  But today I had to wear socks because it was f****g cold.  And I didn't realize until 12 hours later that my socks did not match.  And I had lunch with my mother in law.  Think she noticed?
Okay. Let me explain this picture. I’m not used to wearing socks. Come on, it’s hardly ever under 50 here. But yesterday I had to wear socks because it was crazy cold. And I didn’t realize until 12 hours later that my socks did not match. And I had lunch with my mother in law. Think she noticed?  Thankfully they both had a floral motif.

This dog looks pretty happy frolicking in the snow.  Wonder if he lives in Buffalo.

The feasting season starts next Thursday!  And I only lost 6 pounds.  I’m done posting about my weight lose failure.  But I’m a positive kind of person. There’s always next year!  2015!  January 2nd!  (Gotta a party to go to on the 1st–I have my priorities!)

Maggie will be 15 on December 5th.  Thought she wasn’t going to make it through last weekend, though.  She jumped off the couch and hurt her shoulder and was puny for a few days. Curled up in a ball in her bed in the closet. (She has a bed in every room) Coincidentally, we also had three grandkids here.  Jack Russell Terriers are really not good with children. As soon as they left she suddenly revived.  No more limp! She even walked two miles yesterday.  Such a little faker!

Maggie
I was not faking it. I hurt my shoulder. Really. Are those kids gone yet?

Local news! November is BIG TIME in Old Homosassa.  We started out the month with the Blues and BBQ, followed by the Homosassa Seafood and Arts and Crafts Festival the next weekend and now it’s the Country Rocks The River at Riverside on Saturday. Starts at 5 pm and you have to buy tickets that start at $12!  The headliner is Kevin Anderson.  I don’t know who that is but I bet a lot of locals do. MacRaes will also be having bands starting at noon.  We’ll be hanging out down there at some point.  Probably walk rather than ride our bicycles because last time we rode our bikes at night I fell in the bushes and had to limp home.  Terry seems to think I had too much wine but I’m blaming the bike.  

Have a great weekend!
