Day 8 ~ Turkeys & The Bruise ~ Leah's Dog & Cat ~ Soup

Good 29º foggy morning.

Day 8... trickling water only. No word from the plumber after FB messages, email, and phone message. No sun yesterday. Stayed in the 30ºs all day.YUCK!!!!

This weather prediction is not making me happy:

 The Bruise was out and about.....
And the turkeys were hanging around... they are happy the snow has melted and munch on the grass.. that is, when they're not standing on the fence wondering what I am doing...

"You lookin' at me?"

So, only 10 more days til Christmas. Don't know if all I want to do will get done. May be late with some things... gifts, cards, etc.

I did have some good phone conversations yesterday and last night... Brian, Jeannie, PJ, Nancy (who asked if she could pick up my laundry and do it for me!), Barry (LASD ret), Linda, and Aaron and Marie. Talk about weather.. they moved from Idaho to Montana.. where they have had -22º !!! Their Montana house has had some heating and water heater problems. YIKES, -22º... I was complaining about 2º!

Leah, my hair stylist extraordinaire has dogs and cats.. here's a couple  of them... Gus the dog and Kabinze the kitten. Awwww..... Gus is so sweet!

I finished up the turkey soup yesterday. Added in the turkey gravy and then mixed up some flour and water to thicken it a little more. I used my Mom's ancient shaker .. called a "Swirl Mixer" and made in Rochester NY in the 1930's...
Turkey, green beans, carrots, leeks, celery, garlic, basil,  mini potatoes, grape tomatoes, chopped 'hot' green chilis, broth from cooked turkey bones, turkey gravy.... OMGOOD!!!!

If you were a proctologist... and I don't really know anyone who is, but would you put up a Christmas tree like this? LOL, I would.
All I know. Happy Sunday. Nuff said. Ciao.
