Merry Christmas 2011

It's been a wonderful day to celebrate the Lord Jesus' birth! We didn't make it to a church service but we did listen to some beautiful Christmas CDs. We both were able to restrain ourselves while shopping, so there was just one gift apiece. We've been relaxing and just enjoying all day; and now that the remains of the meal have been put away, we're settling down to Sunday Night Football.

I hope you all had a great day, too!

Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Curried turkey, broccoli salad, cranberry orange relish, and yams mashed with orange marmalade
  • Football (all 3 games!)
  • Phone calls to family back East
  • James Bond marathon
  • Long walk with the dogs
  • Pumpkin rum cheesecake
It's been a good day!

Tomatoes and other veggies

The tomatoes in my Earth Box are finally turning red so I picked 6 of them today. The rest of them will probably freeze tonight or tomorrow night. I think this is the last year I'll try to grow any veggies here ~ nothing I've planted the past 3 summers seems to like the weather. At least one of the local stores has good produce most of the year.

Another Hooray!

My bone density scan came back showing everything is just fine! This is very good news!

A Feline Milestone

At 4 months short of her 5th birthday my cat, Tiger Lily, has finally decided that I'm good for body heat ~ she has snuggled next to me on the couch twice in the past few days. Doesn't sound like much, I know, but it's the first time she's done so since she moved in when she was 6 weeks old (not counting the 2 or 3 times I've caught her sleeping on my legs in the middle of the night).

I'm not holding my breath that she'll ever actually land on my lap. At least she purrs sometimes when I pet her and she never tries to bite or scratch.
