I froze all night, and yet woke up at 7:30 to what the weatherman says is the warmest morning we've had in a while ? I even checked to see if the top of the window where the a/c is, had slipped down. Don't understand it unless, lawdie, I hope not, I'm coming down with one of the sneeze/cough things I seem to be exposed to everwhere I go lately.
No cats last night, altho I toddled into bed early too, Hats, around 8:00, but as I walked through the kitchen this morning, Harry was coming up the walk - making his second run here, I'm sure since he and I usually meet between 6 - 6:30.
A lone male cardinal at my feeder this morning. haven't seen the pair since summer ended. Wonder if they had switched to C.L.'s. No seed in that one now, she has stopped filling it because of the families of deer that feed underneath it. Then they cross the street, and it is a busy one, right in front of her house. She has repeatedly asked the town that a "deer crossing" sign be put up, but they refuse, saying it is up to the drivers to "beware".
Icer, nice to hear from you. I would love one of your gingerbread houses. The competition at the Christmas Festival we are going to this week-end, is a highlight of the trip. Such creative displays. Have you ever gone in and seen them?
G.T.'s Thanksgiving group around the dining room table, grows. All of Lilly's fam (7) are going, plus G.T.'s MIL, 4 friends - that makes 15 as of now - somehow when we're all sitting there for pictures, it seems a lot more. I'll make my pumpkin soup and saltine/choc candy, and my cookie baking GD and I plan on making a slew of those pilgrim hat cookies, some for her fam, and at least 15 to take out there.
Kargiver, hope you will check in this morning. Not like you to let a day go by with no pop in "hello".
Hats, sounds as tho this is a real busy time for you. Don't let yourself get worn down right now at the start of the holiday season. Hope you're headache free this morning.
Pingo, hope you had a good night's sleep and get up this morning feeling like new. I've had many cortisone shots to combat various long lasting pains, my knee being the most successful to this day, and I had absolutely no pain with the injection going in but I know it's different with being shot into an imflammed bursa.
French toast on the menu for me this morning. Guess I'll get up and get it going. Good lawd, a long rambling post - that will be it from me for the day.
