SNOW ~ The Bruise & The Maggs ~ Geese ~ Turkeys ~ Chicken/Cranberry Meatballs Veggies Pesto Cream

Good 33º it SNOWED morning!!!!


Don't know when it started but all was white when I got up. Maggie has been out and in and back out again and now laying on her bed on the porch.

Bruiser went out and came right back in! Then he climbs up on my desk and lays on my computer!

Supposed to take my computer to Turk this morning, but don't know if I want to drive in this. We'll see. Doc appointment in Medford in the afternoon, will do that if the snow stays and we don't get more. Will check the road cams. It's not me that is the concern with driving, it's the other nuts on the road~! When they can't make the curve on our road when it's raining, you know what they do in the snow! (And I still say PJ's favorite term "Globalwarmingmyass" !!!!) The summit isn't looking too travel friendly.


The geese walked to the fence and waited patiently until they were served a daily helping of cracked corn... getting much more friendly... well, they are hungry and know where to get fed!

Well, let's see, the excitement was rampant yesterday. I worked on my big computer taking off stuff I wanted to keep for when it is repaired. Turk will clean it out and reinstall my Windows. So, for how long is unknown that I will be using this laptop. I'm getting better with it. Then I did laundry. Joy.

It is getting close to mating season with the wild turkeys so the Toms and Jakes are hanging out and gobbling and fluffing out their finery.


I wrote the following yesterday before the snow......
The geese are also settling in. There are 7 of them who show up now on a daily basis. Takes a week or so for them to get used to me again. I'll get ground level photos soon. Don't like scaring them unnecessarily.

Dinner on Sunday was some mini squash (yellow, zucchini, and summer), angel hair pasta, some awesome chicken/cranberry meatballs from Costco, tomatoes, and an Archer Farms creamy pesto sauce from Target.

Chop vegetables and sauté with the meatballs. Cook pasta, drain. Add tomatoes to pan, pasta, and the pesto sauce (or Alfredo Sauce, or your favorite... make a creamy white sauce with olive oil, butter, flour, and milk. Stir in your favorite seasonings...i.e. pepper, bacon, garlic, cheese, whatever.....) You will like!!!

I also had an avocado with some of that cilantro dressing ... on my blog on February 4th. GREAT dinner!
