Shopping for Thanksgiving

Everyone enjoys good food. I enjoy shopping for Thanksgiving Dinner. Always Turkey, dressing (cornbread), mashed potatos, gravy, candied yams, fruit salad, boiled New England Vegetables, cranberry sauce, black olives, sweet pickles, pumpkin pie, apple pie, banana pudding with lots of whipped cream. Hot rolls and butter. Yummy fixins.

Do you like to fix a nice big meal on Thanksgiving???

Month is almost gone :)

So what do you think, another month biting the dust. Also, another time change. Today is rather mild considering that Winter came into town and hung around a few days, yuk!!!

We went to Walmart this morning and we bought so much junk, lol. Floyd said "let's get candy for the kids". I said "floyd, the kids just don't stop by because of the dogs." And, he said "well, it's an excuse to buy candy"..which we did and then some. We bought this big, big, bag of peanut butter cups, huge bag of peppermint candies, cookies, apples, a pumpkin and lots of "stuff". I told him that I planned to bake some pumpkin sugar cookies tonight, but oh well. He wanted to buy a pie for dessert tonight but I nixed that. Old folks are like kids, I believe that. :)Oh yes, floyd did pick up a case of diet coke for me, YEA!! When we shop for groceries, he always says "what's for dessert?".

Beautiful coolish day here, lots of sunshine. I'm surprised that our trees still have leaves after that awful wind of this past week

Enjoy Halloween and don't forget to turn back those clocks Sat. night.

Cold weather hits Deming. :(

This photo was taken this morning in Deming. The temp. at our house was 35F for a low and we are getting this cold weather a good three weeks early this year. I'm not too surprised since the entire year has been odd as far as weather is concered. We have an RV Convention in town and I feel bad for those folks who thought they would be far enough south to avoid this cold. They will most likely never come back!

President Obama is spending money on a new elec. grid for our country. There is a large fibre-optic line coming across the southern U.S. thru NM and AZ and the purpose is to carry the electricity from local windfarms and solar farms so we are on our way, :)

October! !


Halloween comes this month and then Thanksgiving in November and then Christmas in December. Lots of holidays this time of year. Also I have a November birthday and floyd has a December birthday, so yea!!!! I enjoy the holidays still, but keep it simple and inexpensive. We do not spend much money on them, that is for young employed people. I can remember the day when I enjoyed shopping, but no more.

Time for us to put out some pumpkins for decorations. I don't bake pumpkin pies anymore. We just buy them. Today was a beautiful day weatherwise. We did have a plumber come by and cover our cooler and service our furnace so if it gets cold we will have heat. Luckily, our winters are on the mild side, but still too cold for me, lol. Being an older person, I just cannot get warm or stay warm so I bundle up when it is cold.

This weekend is the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta and it is very special. Before 911 they had over 1,000 balloons but now it is around 600 because of all the restrictions and regulations of overseas entries.
