I can't believe this year has gone by so fast. Here were are almost a week away from Thanksgiving. I know this not because I checked a calendar or noticed that some folks have already decorated their homes for Christmas, but because the last time I tried to pass the time of day with a local turkey, he gobble-hopped away from me.
Maybe it was because I was carrying an axe. Really, I was only chopping some wood. I wanted to tell the turkey he looked
juicy healthy and ask if he'd lost weight lately. Isn't that a good conversation opener?
Anyturkeysoup, Texas is showing a bit of color.
Colorful crepe. No turkeys were axed to get this photo.
Also, I want to introduce you to my new friend, Les Miserable the Meerkat. It was a very hot day at the zoo when we snapped this photo. This little guy was off by himself. Maybe he was caught passing gas in the burrow one too many times.
"So bored. So wery, wery bored. I luvs my tail, though."
For those of you who asked and even if you didn't, the photo in my header is also meerkats with a bold domestic orange tabby pushing himself in on the action.
It's the baking season around her in Geekville. I've got State Fair Yeast Biscuits rising on the stovetop. You've got me, BakingGeek, so who needs Rachael or Sandra or any of those silly folks that make cooking look easy on TV? But my kitchen is a mess. It's never messy for Rachael or Sandra, is it?
I've got an extra hole in my yard. I think I mentioned that we are getting new water lines. Yippee. My neighbor and I decided that the new hole could be the start of a swimming pool. Interviews for lifeguards and pool guys will commence in early spring. That's plenty of time for you guys to get into shape. Good Luck.
