USA Thanks Day 2013

Photo by SnaggleTooth Aug 2013

Mostly I'm Thankful to not be stuck at work tonight.. I feel bad for all the workers roped into the new Thursday Sales shopping this holiday. Also thankful the laundry is almost all done for my next work-week, so I'll relax now.

A wonderful n early Turkey dinner was for my breakfast, n leftovers followed me home for lunch round 2. Down the hill at BBM's house, there were five, bouncy, Little Ones to keep us all busy, n a table full of folks all wanting pie.

I made my Nanny's home-made dinner rolls to bring along, plus some Pumpkin Pie Bars. I used a "Krusteaz" mix. They had a spicy, cinnamon, bottom crust with pumpkin filling with a brownie-like consistency. They were a hit n all gone now.

I'm lucky I didn't need to travel. The weather is cold but yesterday's storm is over. I bet it messed up other folks plans a bit-

Pic is pretty Tiger Lilies I'd found on a walk last summer I'm thankful I had an image in drafts with orange in it- The new pics I wanted today wouldn't load yet.

I hope you all have wonderful stuff to be grateful about too- Even if it's not your holiday there...

B Cove, Purple

 Photo by SnaggleTooth Fall 2013

The view opposite the sunset side of the bridge is often very pastel hues n beautiful. I've  been missing most of the sunsets this month, light is getting so limited in my day. The Sun is far to the left of the M-cove these days where I take pics usually.
This pic is from a few weeks ago, tho it's been pastel there again most of the week.

Time to gear up for Thanksgiving week, n this year I get it off- Yay! I'll not be shopping that day either...

Has it Really been 50 years
since the Kennedy Assassination?
Yikes, I remember that day...

So many footsteps I've walked since then...
Much innocence left behind.
Have we gotten very far?

The Media mentions shootings
Almost every week these days-
Big guys n little victims too

Lost in sands of violence
Spiraling ever downward
Crazy killers Stealing lives.

Changing effects those would've had
On other lives n loves.
Casting the world into darkness

How different this place could be
Had Kennedy not been taken early,
We will never know -

But I'll always wonder
With a bitter chill,
How to reconcile Hope's escape

It let me in the editor!

Pretty Cove

I'm starting to feel like a broken record whining about how unreliable my ISP is with loading Blogger- But again another week of aggravation n wasted time not being able to load the editor page.
Six hours yesterday wasted trying! Ugh!
I now see it was another windows update messing with my machine... eating the upload cache memory.
It's been a nit bit chilly here in the artic, er- I mean on the Cape where there was brief snowfall Tuesday before we got 20F Temps for Day Off.
I got a late start getting out for errands after digging out a clean heavy coat, scarf, n gloves. The wind chill got me hurrying along n back home to the above freezing zone, under a blanket with hot water bottles.

Going to do a round two for store errands this week, so much to carry- but at least will be warmer out next trip...

You know you're getting old when you rush out to get somewhere on time, but forget important stuff to have with you. Like the PO box key, n the cell phone so you can multi-task, both of which I did this week.
I'm really feeling old lately tho- I tried to shop after forgetting to put the reading glasses in my pocket to bring along the other day! (well I don't like walking around with them on.) That was difficult, as I like to compare prices n was taking too long figuring out amounts...

At least I didn't buy anything I won't use. Rushed shopping stinks, because often it causes poor choice decisions.
I think my brain freeze this round was mostly caused by the freezing temps... Warmer tomorrow. Yay!
Went to another computer to post today.
The cove sunset  from a few weeks ago here.

Pretty Tree

Here's old MapleBeard looking good last week before dumping two feet deep of leaves in the yard.

Pretty Vines

Image by SnaggleTooth Fall 2013

Finally today I found two hours to tackle the deep mound of leaves out front. It was bothering me all week, n blowing all over. The tree leaves are almost done turning n falling here. The colors were pretty this week. Have pics to post a bit later-.

Still haven't found much time for blog reading, n well get to it soon hopefully. After two weeks of not feeling well, I'm finally eating normally again. Tho some congestion remains, I'm back to feeling up to errands n chores without too much coughing.Getting thru work with a runny nose n more sensitive allergies has been challenging to say the least.

I'm going crazy trying to do so much before the sun sets at 4:30  this week, I did one hour of those leaves in the dark.... We set the clocks back an hour for Eastern Daylight Savings this past week-end. The extra hour to sleep was great, but I'm back to dragging on wake-up time again already.

Here's some  turned vines out in my back yard a few weeks ago. More leaf pics will eventually get here.
