Elk ~ Crazy Turkeys ~ Update on Tex Mex Mac ~ Dog Rescue

Good 20ยบ frozen morning! Dang! It's freekin' cccccold!

Maggie's water frozen. Hummingbird feeder frozen. Grass frozen. Trees frozen. ... Drinking hot tea. Would like to be swimming in it!

First of all I changed the Tex Mex Mac & Cheese recipe after I made it yesterday. 5 1/2 - 6 hours is too long to cook it. Just cook it on low for about 2 1/2 hours, add the cooked pasta, and turn it to 'warm'. It sure was GOOD!!!! Will be making that baby again. And I like my black olives whole. The whole wheat spirals were good, not as 'pretty', but better health wise.

Tuesday there suddenly appeared a herd of elk in my pasture.

It was still pretty dark and hard to get a clear picture... They hung out for a while and then headed up the hill and probably towards my pond....

And then yesterday .................. I heard this loud noise and it sounded like it was coming from the roof! I looked out and here were two big old turkeys on my electric wires coming from the pole to the house............ !

The first pictures I took through the window, thinking I would scare them. Not. So I went out on the porch and got these. Goofy birds. I told them "good morning" and they flew down, hoping for a treat of some kind, no doubt!

I don't know how many of you know about the lady who was out jogging with her dog in Florida and she was hit and killed by a drunk. The dog, injured, swam out a mile into the Gulf and was rescued by a kayaker. This site has the story and a video of him being rescued and pulled into the kayak. Amazing.
