of me small, small, small.

  7. Yesterday, the cars never un-thawed from the ice…can still see snow up on the butte (at the top which is an open area) snow no longer hanging on trees…we walked yesterday along the creek, the sun was shining bright though the sun never merged with some areas of the path so the ground in those areas was frozen hard and some slick areas too. The dear hubby said the survivors lived through Thanksgiving, I thought for a moment and then he said just look at them, a group of turkeys eating windfall apples under an abandoned tree…our temps paralleling western North Dakota’s temps…we rarely get snow or icky cold…it is 27…overcast & foggy no sun shinning here today and I am thankful and content to be cozy at home for the past several day (turned out to just be the 2 of us this year)…and many homeless folks are staying in the emergency warming shelters… hoping to not get a mini ice storm…& that the snow due to fall north of us stays north!

  8. Still like this today. Except on the couch, wrapped in a blanket. (Worth it!)

  10. That photo KILLED me – so, so, so good! That’s how I feel most of the time – and we haven’t had a Thanksgiving Dinner, as the French (nor the Swiss) celebrate in that elaborate fashion.
