The Temps Are Dropping

When the bold branches
Bid farewell to rainbow leaves -
Welcome wool sweaters.
~B. Cybrill

I said something yesterday that, in retrospect, made me shiver. What was it?

"It's going to be warming up into high the 40s next week."

Yes, it's true... it's COLD here. Blech. Today I am thankful for my wood stove. Yesterday our house got so warm, we opened the windows. LOVE having a wood stove.

DD watched a bunch of cooking shows yesterday. I now have a pile of recipes she wrote down that she wants me to try (including Chickpea meatless Meatballs) and last night she sauteed herself a bunch of different veggies based on color ... because everything they made on the shows looked so pretty and she wanted her plate to look pretty, too.

I told her she could take over cooking dinner any time she'd like. She declined.

Nothing planned for today here. Anyone out there doing anything exciting?


You Should Go on a Disney Cruise

You are family oriented, fun loving, and truly a kid at heart.

For you, a cruse is less about the destination and more about the total experience.

You love the idea of a cruise with a little nostalgia and lots of activities for everyone.

A Disney cruise will wow you, entertain you, and give you memories to last a lifetime.

I'm good with that... when do I leave?

It'll be in the 70s for the next 3 days but we're getting a cold snap from the NW on Thanksgiving. There's supposed to be a slight freeze.

We're hustling to finish a second chicken yard and coop because we want to separate the chickens between breeds. Next year we hope to sell chicks.

Today is also the day five roosters go to chicken heaven. I put them on death row last night.

My son looks to be the chef in the making in our family. He's always looking for ways to put a different spin on something. We watch a lot of cooking shows at my in-laws. And my brother is a huge Alton Brown fan. Now if only Megan would become more interested in cooking.

Going to my in-laws today (speaking of in-laws). and I have to grocery shop at some point. fun!!!

today is my boring day. I'll be looking at quilt blocks so I can design my latest quilt.

Maria, ahh.. the hard part of raising your own critters: death row. We used to raise rabbits for meat and fur and I HATED slaughter day. I usually left the property. Of course I was only about ten then, and rabbits are so soft and fluffy.

The roosters I didn't mind dealing with so much... Good luck with it.

Ceri, I used to love to cook, but cooking for my very picky DH has taken a lot of the joy out of it. Cooking for my DD, though, is helping that to return because she's game to try just about anything!

Dru... quilting isn't boring! :-)

I am doing very little today. going to try the orange chicken recipe that I found. Sounds great.

You Should Go on an Australian Cruise
You're the kind of person who is interested in everything. You have a hardcore desire to experience it all.
You fit in perfectly in the largest cities in the world, but you also cherish your time in nature.

You are an active and energetic person. You don't want to lounge around on a cruise ship... you want to go diving or kangaroo watching!
You want your vacation to be completely action packed. You'll sleep when you're back at home

I couldn't have a farm, I can't kill anything bigger than a spider.
Today I'm caulking the kitchen, vacuuming and shampooing the carpets and hopefully painting a bit of trim. Oh, and ironing. *g* My Daughter has no interesting in cooking right now and Son? He likes to help me bake. Chris and I share cooking duties and we try new things all the time.

You Should Go on an Alaskan Cruise
You are bold, upbeat, and game for anything. You want to see and do it all.
Relaxing in the sun is not your cup of tea... getting out and seeing the world is!
You aren't a normal traveler. You have to get off the beaten path and do your own thing.
Your looking to push yourself and have a real adventure. You won't be happy unless your inner daredevil is having a blast.

I am not bold or daring, I just don't like to be bored. *g*

I hope you're having a good day and that you get lots of sunny warm sun!
