I don't know what I would have done these past couple of years, without Lily by my side. She is comfort and companionship all day, and snuggles by my feet at night.

I definitely feel the same way about Blackie. She's been my grief counselor through this past year.

Had a routine Dr's appt this morning, picked up some B&N gift cards, and ran a couple of other errands....handy to have a car, and I'm going to get as much done as I can while I've got it.

It is chilly and wintry looking here, and fixin' to get colder soon. I still don't have holiday decorations out...but it isn't yet December 1st.

This was a dish my Mother made, often serving it with roast pork, and I made it often for my children as it is inexpensive and packed with protein....in our near vegetarian days, it was a main dish.

I still love it...eat it a couple of times, and then freeze leftovers into meal sized portions. I like to use the German-style, thin egg noodles, which have a bit more substance to them than some.

Hungarian Noodle Bake

8 oz thin egg noodles, cooked and drained

1 tsp onion powder, 1\2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt, several good grinds of fresh pepper
1 tbsp poppy seeds
1 tsp Worcestershire

1 1/2 cups low-fat creamed cottage cheese
1 cup low-fat sour cream

Mix all together, pour into greased baking dish, bake about 30 minutes at 350 degrees, til bubbly and top begins to brown a bit.

Hugs from a human are nice, when available, but, puppy hugs are pretty nice. Any time I am in my recliner, the pups gather, each in a favorite spot, and the hug fest ensues. I don't mind one bit!

Snow predicted for Friday....then a much larger snow on schedule for next Tuesday. Time to snuggle in....with hot tea, and with the pups!

I agree, Evelyn....there's just something about a dog.

We may have a bit of snow this weekend, but it has been a very nice transition season, so can't complain.

I have another hat and 1/2 done...whatever is completed by tomorrow evening will be it.

A rather wintry day, today, tho no snow....cold enough to have that red glow and a bit of flame in the woodstove all day...I like.

Finished a hat this morning, and another one at Needlework group today, and will get the final one done this evening....box will be full, and head off to cold heads and necks in Brunswick, Ga.

Dr. Culpepper and his staff will be delighted to have them, and will place them all with folks who need them....that gives me a good feeling inside.

Lots of widow-talk at Needlework group today...I'm the most recent widow, but most of us are without our spouses due to death, so there are two, built in, common denominators.

Life. Sigh.

TJ Max has long been a favorite, tho carefully rationed , place for me to find nice things at bargain prices, and I always look thru their glassware for items that would make beautiful candles.

The large, center glass is "crackled" at the base...$1.99...the tall green are recycled glass from Spain ...$2.49 each.

Beautiful holiday soy candles, for $5-$6 each.

Clean burning and gorgeous, they will be stunning when lit.

What's not to love?

Maggie

Love TJMax and Home Goods. Such nice products for great prices and a constant quickly rotating stock.

Tuesday morning is also a great place for bargain prices with unusual selections. One never knows what you'll find there. I have one about 7 miles away and try not to go too often....my way of controlling my $!

I like Tuesday Morning, too....another place not to go into often, tho there are some beautiful things there at great prices.

Got the little house cleaned and tidied....it had been a bit neglected this week whilst I was on hat-crocheting-marathon...baked a loaf of bread, took my box for Faithworks to the post office, and got a fresh wreath for my door.

They're predicting rain mixed with snow for Sunday, so I will get some more wood in tomorrow and cover my pile with a tarp.

Highs in the 20's with lows in the teens next week, but I've got plenty of firewood.

Maggie

Hauled wood into the house and garage this morning, and moved some around to get it covered from impending moisture and to tidy up the patio....I'm down to about a cord of wood left.

The bags of wood I'm carrying must weigh 40 lbs, at least. Sometimes I amaze even myself, schlepping that weight here and there.

Good for my aging bones.

Have also spent a couple of hours sleuthing with my laptop today, going thru 1800's Census Records on ancestry...nailing down facts, relationships and locations in the mystery branch of the family.

Those old, handwritten records are difficult to read, but fascinating.

And, I'm physically tired ...but, chores needing done are completed, Lily's had her walk, and I have cooked today, so I don't need to do much else.

Perhaps have some eggnog with a dollop of icy cold rum in it after awhile.

Maggie

I have no eggnog, but, a bit of cognac sounds good right now. Just stepped outside to bring pups in from dog run and it is cold out there!

Another favorite recipe this time of year.

They're not too sweet, and full of chopped, fresh cranberries.

Cranberry-Orange Muffins

2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

1/4 cup oil
1 egg
1 tsp grated fresh orange rind
2/3 cup orange juice

Mix dry ingredients in large bowl, whisk together wet ingredients, blend together til almost mixed.

Add

1 bag fresh cranberries, chopped (I use food processor)
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Blend together, spoon into muffin pans and bake at 400 degrees 20-22 minutes.
