Good to hear about the shedding. They will still "blow" their coats about twice a year, but even that will be less.

All natural stuff.

Hi Gerard,

No snow here, and it has actually been a beautiful...but cold...day.

Kinda windy, but a fair amount of sun.

I got the front yard raked..again..only about 6 leaves left on my red leaf maple..and Lily had a good walk.

Made another scarf, and a men's hat...my box is filling up.


Maggie

Good morning!

We had quite a bit of snow yesterday here in Ohio -- at times it was almost a whiteout. Early on we were expecting it to not stick because it had been so warm here lately, but when we awoke this morning, we had a snow covered lawn! I love to see the fresh snow, especially if I don't have to go anywhere, but when it gas been on the ground for a while and starts looking dirty, I am ready for it to melt off.

Well, the surgery is behind me, and the preliminary results from their lab was good, but it was sent off for an official biopsy, so we'll see. Very sore, as I really had two surgeries in one, but that will pass. So pleased about the early report -- it's like a new lease on life. My surgeon stated that most women who come into her office are at a Stage III or Stage IV because you just don't realize anything is wrong until the pain starts and it normally is too late by that time. I am on a mission to pass the word of the importance to press your doctor(s) to be more thorough in their exams.

Hoping everyone has a great day!

Deb

Good to hear your surgery went well, Deb, and wishing you a speedy and uneventful recovery.

No snow here, but it has become abruptly cold, with enough wind chill that the little house was at 63 degrees when I got up this morning....and that's okay, because the woodstove takes care of that quite nicely, and I love the whole ritual of emptying the stove, lighting a fire, the house warming up, etc.

Did my Sunday morning skype with dear daughter, and we are planning out our time together when I visit them in a few weeks. I want to see City Island, and we may do a walking tour or two. So much to see, hope we have good weather.

Doug had a favorite meat market here, an old fashioned butcher where he would go in on occasion and select good steaks to grill for us.

He said their beef was the best, and would buy no where else. And, the man knew about and how to grill a steak.

I have only been in there a couple of times since he's been gone, buying their burgers for family gigs, but ordered some fresh turkey parts to roast for myself which sweet son then picked up for me yesterday.

Yikes!

Almost like buying beef in price , but no 15% added whatever, and I probably have 10lbs of turkey breast.

They split it in half for me, so am going to vacuum seal one piece and stick it in the feeezer for another time...love that vacuum sealer.

But, now I will have the aroma of roasting turkey in the little house, leftovers, and bones, etc., for soup.

Will be a guest at my son's on Thursday.

Going to spend some time today on the leaf mass still in the back yard , and finish up some late season yard things before there is snow on the ground.

Sun is shining....going to be a beautiful day.

Maggie

�� And to all out there. ��

Turkey roasted in two cast iron skillets while I worked on leaves....I cut one breast half into three pieces, and had two thighs.

Two skillets full.

Going to have lots of turkey, and Lily has settled herself into the kitchen to await whatever might come her way.

My cast iron skillets needed a good bake with something in them, as they don't get much use these days, just hang over my stove looking neglected and forlorn...they will be very happy.

Your turkey looks lovely. How do you prep it, anything in the pan, covered?

Cut the grass in shorts yesterday. So enjoyable and didn't even break a sweat.

Participating in this forum has made me more aware of how early and late winter can affect us all. When you live in such an opposite climate you almost forget.

You and Lily stay warm in your lovely stove warmed home.

You know, I've never roasted turkey parts in cast iron before, but I thought...what the heck, it ought to work, right? Such a great conductor of heat.

I cut them to more or less uniform in size, then rinsed and patted the pieces dry, salt, pepper and a little garlic powder.

Because my skillets hadn't been used in awhile, I coated the inside and out with a little canola oil, then put them in the oven at 325 for 2+ hours til I tested the thick pieces with a sharp knife to see that the juices ran clear.

I basted them once, and covered loosely with foil, shiny side down, the last half hour.

Worked great, and tastes delicious.

I wanted to roast it, so I did, and would pronounce the method a success.

Lily planted herself on the kitchen floor and whimpered at me to get to it, which I did, and she got a small bit.

She did some serious ball chasing while I was doing leaves, so is now down for a nap.

Booger dog.

Sorry for your rain, Gail....but, it's Oregon, in all its beauty and splendor.

The turkey came out great, and I will do it in the cast iron again....my skillets are very, very happy after some re-seasoning.

Yep, and rain is essential for life.

It is clear and sunny again today, tho 21 degrees this morning and a hard frost.

We had a drought in the Midwest not too many years ago, and I vowed then not to complain about rain again....crops died, cattle and pigs were slaughtered because of the cost of feed.

It was very sobering.

Working on the leaf mass again this morning...going to start sweeping it onto tarps tomorrow, if my yard guys don't get here.

It's good for my aging body, I tell myself, and to know I can do it if I must.

You know you're addicted to something when you are bargaining with yourself to stop...."I'll finish this row, this hat, this scarf, etc., then make myself run the vacuum, rake the leaves, walk the dog, etc."

I am addicted to crochet, yes I am. Could be worse.

And, my box for Faithworks is nearly full.
