Christmas music!

Floyd's goofy country music station is playing Christmas Music this morning - think I might just lose my mind.

Rain for Thanksgiving :(

I guess it will rain Thursday and Friday this week. No matter, we aren't going anywhere.I see that Tuesday and Wednesday it will rain in California. I don't think rain is a good thing for Thanksgiving, snow maybe, but rain just doesn't do it. Of course, we rarely get rain so maybe the novelty will improve my mood. Mainly, we like to sit on our front porch for dessert. I like putting my pies, etc. on the table on the front porch so it is handy. Can't do that when it is too cold. Oh well, :(

Hope all is well out there, enjoy the holidays!!!

Lovely, cold day here in Deming. Should be a little warmer on Thanksgiving. Wish all of you a lovely weekend. It is hot in southern California!!

I've been cutting up the big pumpkin I had outside,
and I am planning to make some pies for thanksgiving.

Today was a beautiful day and Floyd went for a bike ride. He came home with a peach pie, a blueberry pie and a bunch of bananas. He must have been hungry, lol. Also he bought me a nice "green" shopping bag for my library books, cool!

Nice days, cold nights

It is that time of year, the nights are either right at freezing or just above and the days are in the upper 60s or low 70s. Lots of sunshine.

Floyd spent yesterday potting plants. He went to Walmart and purchased some potting soil and then dug up a couple of plants and potted them. We have had this Spider plant for several years now. It dies back every year but then comes back in the Springtime. He put it in a nice pot and brought it inside. Then he repotted another plant, put it in a larger pot with new soil. He does all that he can to find outdoor things to do. Floyd is so restless when he has to be indoors. Our yard always looks neat and groomed because Floyd likes to stay busy.

I hope that our government doesn't just throw money at all these failed businesses. They should just let them go bust and start over with a sensible business plan that works. It is not fair to the taxpayers to support failed industries. They must learn to be competitive. Well, that's my thinking anyway.

Think I will work on some recipes today, talk with you all later.

Hey, I'm older now!

(me and my girls), lol.

Well, considering the state of my health, this is indeed good news. I had a great birthday with many best wishes and also some super-goodies. Many thanks to all from a now much wealthier Moni, lol.

I see that it is 60F with no wind at all and lots of sunshine so I really can't complain even though it was 27F last night. Winter has come to our area. Did you all see the pictures of South Dakota and their 4 feet of snow??? Isn't that incredible, not even officially winter yet. I hear that the temps can drop as much as 70 degrees in one hour when that cold front moves in, yikes
Our trees are now shedding their leaves. However, some of our flowers are still blooming. Yesterday Floyd picked me a bunch of roses and put them in a vase for me. He did that before I was even out of bed.!

Talk to you all later.

Thanksgiving month :)

I woke up waaay too early today!

This is Thanksgiving month and Turkey Day is always a good excuse to fix lots of food and eat leftovers for a week, lol. I like the leftovers, especially the dressing and gravy and the pumpkin pie!!

I still must purchase my turkey and make a menu. I planned to invite our friends, the Watsons, but we met David in Walmart who was grocery shopping like us, and he said that they were going to the "river", for Thanksgiving. That is the Colorado River, they have family there and they all love the Casinos in Laughlin, NV, just across the "river"! lol.
