End of November

The last day of November already?
I trust everyone had a wonderful
Thanksgiving Day filled with
gratitude and surrounded with
family and friends.  We did.

Hello Anna!
Received your welcome postal but
 was disappointed in not hearing that
 you were going to come or not.  Look
 on the other side for your Tom cat.
From your loving friend, Dora
I was going to ask, do you think
the animal is a tom cat, dog or
kangeroo, but Dora seems to
think it is a tomcat !  

Remember to support small businesses, both locally and 
on the internet too.

Autumn waning

Can it really be almost a month
 before Christmas?  And then 2014?!

A few "last of Autumn" photos 
before Christmas.

A couple of weeks ago we had
 hundred's of pelicans come through 
for a couple of days.  This is the
 tail end of one of their visits.
If we could figure out how to transfer
video to youtube we got a nice video 
of them in the cove, splashing and 
feeding on the fish.

 dining room door.

It's beginning to look a lot like
 Christmas, in Northern California
that is.

Turkeys and perfect days.

I was planning to decorate for
Thanksgiving, but decided to start
 Christmas instead.  I unpacked
my vintage turkey collection, but here
it sits on the sideboard.  LOL

Today was beautiful here at the 
cottage.  I am enjoying this mild
 November weather.  We do need
 the rain, but I am in no hurry.

It seems like I am working on 10
 different projects at once and I hope
 that one day one of them will be done!

An idea for Thanksgiving

Has anyone else seen this on facebook?
I don't know how I found it, but I 
thought it was so clever. 
 You could use so many
different veggies too.
