My doe Nellie has a cold. I went out to feed and she didn’t want to come out of the shed. The other 2 girls went right to the food, but I called and called and she wouldn’t even put her head out. She finally came out when I went in the pen. Her nose sounds stuffed. It’s -2 outside. Wonderful.
Big ass turkey,
Gluten free stuffing,
Homemade cranberry sauce w/ apples,
Sweet potato salad,
Michael’s hard cider
Chocolate cream pie,
We cooked all day! I hope the guys from Michael’s office have good appetites. The only thing missing is my mom and sister. I haven’t spent a holiday with either of them in at least 7 years. How sad is that? My dad came down for Christmas 5 years ago. That was.. Interesting. He always makes for an uncomfortable good time.
Fucking turkey is 45 pounds. 45 pounds!! He won’t fit in the oven. What do I do! Even if he did fit it would take 15 hours to cook him. I had not anticipated this.
Wild turkey next time. Or maybe buy one from the Hutterites. This white broad breasted turkey business is just nuts.
I have decided to put the nose to the grindstone and actually get busy on a submission to an art show. The first in probably 2 years. I’ll be working on miniature art quilts for the ZACC minis fundraiser. I’m thinking a space theme. Planets, rockets, etc. Ok. Just thought I’d put that out there so now I feel obligated to get it done. Aaaaaaaand….. Go!
A couple days ago Mia asked me to knit her a scarf before it gets cold. Hmmm.. She should have asked sooner. It’s really cold now and it’s going to take me a couple if weeks to get this done I’m afraid.
“The Japanese say you have three faces.
The first face, you show to the world.
The second face, you show to your close friends, and your family.
The third face, you never show anyone. It is the truest reflection of who you are.”—(via unkissecl)
