I spent a couple of hours yesterday making stuffed pasta shells - six meals of them to be exact. I have already put 4 meals in the freezer. That new freezer is almost full. DH has been stocking up with meat specials for the past three weeks. I think we have enough steak and pork roasts to last until spring.
I also spent a few hours Saturday in the main gardens cutting down dead foliage while DH cut the grass and raked up a ton of crabapples from the tree in the front yard. I snapped this picture just as he was turning to chat with a neighbor who stopped while driving by to ask him a question about some work gossip. DH hates gossip of any kind and always evades the questions.
Late this morning I was looking out the bedroom window with my camera trying to capture a picture of the dozens of grackles (medium-sized blackbirds) that were passing through. I didn't get a good bird pic, but I did capture this red fox as it was passing through my yard.
I went out early this morning to make a purple flower bouquet as I intended to do a purple Al Fresco table for tonight's dinner using these items:
I work on the quilt for a while
then I snuggle up with the quilt to take a break and read a chapter in my latest novel.
