Post Thanksgiving culinary madness

The sun's coming up on another November day in the Springs with temps near freezing that will be in the 60s later today. Charlie and I were invited to the home of one of his friend's family, where the company was good and the food was plenty, and we were sent home with some leftovers... But yesterday, we realized we had not turkeyed near enough. So we went to the grocery store--the only store, we figured, not filled with Black Friday shoppers--and acquired our own turkey and some green vegies.... Sign in to see full entry.

New photos are up!

Click left from here to see my new shelves that I suddenly had to make yesterday evening, and why I needed them. Click right to see this morning's and last night's clouds, and a frosty day at the end of October. Sign in to see full entry.

I have been holding back on this bit of news until it actually materialized in payment: In October, my Fine Art America gallery sold two photos, the same image to two different buyers, of Stonyhurst College. They had 30 days to change their minds, and didn't, so today I received $170 total! Maybe I should start paying more attention to the Fine Art America site! Sign in to see full entry.

Wednesday morning...

Sunny and cold, not likely to get very close to warm today... Embers' new meds are finally working: she is eating again and clearly feeling better. I just replaced the water dish in the parakeets' house, and observed one of them immersing himself in it, having a nice little bathe. So I have initiated the dish bought for the purpose, and they are now considering this pond on the floor of their house. I have never seen them bathing before, so there is much waiting and watching on all our parts, to... Sign in to see full entry.

Up before dawn again, and hungry

Only a couple of days ago, it was too overcast and I slept too late anyway... But Venus and Jupiter were due to meet up very close together in the heavens. This morning's clear sky just before dawn let me see them together in the sky, not so close, but still not so far apart. And another, just below the crescent moon, I suspect was Mercurly. I have been experimenting with breakfast. I have discovered that an egg can be nicely poachefried in oil in the wok, so today I tried poaching them in soup:... Sign in to see full entry.

The new batch!

We finally ran another freeze-dry cycle: strawberries, pineapple, apple, ground pork, ground bison, and turkey burgers. Most came out quite well, but there are notes to remember. First, pineapple has to be cut small or the outside dries before the inside, and ends up insulating the inside of the larger pieces so that after 28 hours cycling through freezing and drying, the inside is still wet. Second, same note regarding larger chunks of ground meat. Next time, smaller, flatter pieces or even... Sign in to see full entry.

Snow like powdered sugar

It won't last out the day, wth temperatures expected to be well above freezing, though not much above cold. Charlie applied for a simple little part time job at the storage place where we keep our Other Stuff, and interviewed yesterday, and got the job! It is ideal for his needs, leaving him plenty of time for his greater interests, paying enough to keep bills current and groceries on the shelf. It is within walking distance, and he has always liked walking. A big bonus is that he already is... Sign in to see full entry.

A useful Sunday...

Charlie and I went to a soup and bread party yesterday. It was the kick-off party for a local charity effort that supports, among other recipients, the local theaters. This party was at the Springs Ensemble Theater which lately presented AFTERLIFE, the show that used the big black bird puppet that Charlie constructed for them. The folks at SET have produced several award-winning shows in the past few years. They have high and professional standards, and have used Charlie's talents several time....
