Notes from Here and There

Sorry this will be a bit disjointed of a post, but all nine of my loyal readers are probably used to these by now as you've probably already figured out that I am pretty much an attention-deficit goldfish who is surprisingly gifted at abstract mathematics. And who can type. Nevertheless, here is my Thanksgiving report.

First of all, here are the girls is a photo of the girls on the couch.

And of my Thanksgiving contribution, roasted veggies and cornbread:

And of the dowgs sitting nicely for biscuits:

My entry for the annual pie contest:

It's apple with dried cherries:

I didn't win, but I always win first prize in the pie contest judged by my dogs!

The layout:


The auxiliary table, displayed by the lovely JB3:

All in all, it was a gorgeous weekend, with treasured friends, good food, and skiing every day!!

Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
If I spring a leak she mends me
I don't have to speak, she defends me

Sunrise/set from the ridge top:

The sun at dusk this time of year is the exact color of a lotus blossom. It washes the trees in pinkish orange:

Autumn and Linden are very happy:

You are very poetic, I don't see lotus color on those trees. Your pie looks just like those sold in Andronic's. They taste great too (from our memory). I know why yours didn't win, it has a Chinese flair to it and you didn't even realize -- less sugary, more fruity, like ShenKi Bakery.
