Harvey's daddy is...well, we don't exactly know who his daddy is. Ruby the Hussy must have backed up to a fence back in mid-February....Harvey is a bit on the small side but he is nursing and dry and very active. Notice his cute white 'beard'! Ruby is a wonderful mamma so we know he will be fine.
Next up, Thanksgiving dinner in preparation. Mr. Wonderful decided to smoke a turkey this year. He started out by brining it overnight in some wonderful brining spices his sister gave him last year for Christmas. This morning he drained off the brine, slathered butter all over that bird, spiced it up with all kinds of yummy spices, and set it on the smoker out in the front yard.
After he got it on the smoker, he stuffed the inside with celery and oranges and lemons, then put more lemons and oranges in the smoker pan. He alsoput soaked wood chips in the pan - hickory, apple, and cherry. By the time I get home from work, the turkey should be done and all we'll need to do tomorrow is warm it through. YUM!
Hoping you all have a peaceful, wonderful Thanksgiving. Thanks for stopping by.

You will note that the dogs had a busy Sunday also...someone needed to make sure the carpet didn't levitate off the foundation, didn't they? Our dogs are troopers! Briscoe and Carson to the rescue!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving. John's family is coming so I need to vacuum the dog and cat hair...perhaps I should start today and I might have it done by Thursday!
Thanks for stopping by...

I was floored! Judith said she was inspired to make one for her granddaughter and then retire from Barbie clothes! Mine was the prototype.

I recently participated in a drawing on Cinnamongirl93's blog (www.cinnamongirl93.blogspot.com) to celebrate her 1 year Blogaversary. She randomly drew names for prizes she was offering. Surprise! She drew my name....and this is the prize package I received in the mail! From the top and clockwise you see 101 Designer One Skein Wonders (I have wanted this book for quite some time!), Chocolate truffles, gummies, the cutest handmade card, honey sticks, and a package of teas with a tea bag 'spoonrest'. Wow! What a bounty of goodies. Thanks so much, Barb!
Have been working on Christmas presents...can't show them since some of the recipients are readers....just know that I am overacheiving, as usual and am almost to the burnout stage!
Have a great weekend. More coming soon. Thanks for stopping by.
