Snow! It’s beautiful, it’s several inches deep, and it’s still coming down. Good thing I already bought the turkey.
We saw a cow and bull moose passing the fence yesterday, a lovely sight in the snow. These animals are truly magnificent, though I certainly wouldn’t want to encounter one of them up close and personal. They range over a pretty wide territory, as I understand it, so it’s a real treat when they come through our neck of the woods.
I worked on the book yesterday, and did some art work on breaks–I’m having a ball pouring resin on things. Plus, I’m still making progress with organization. It makes a huge difference now that I paint and and snip and glue downstairs. The dogs get lots of exercise, too, going up and down–Bernice especially likes to keep me within radar range. She’s baffled by the snow, as it’s as high as she is, but Sadie barrels through the stuff like a puppy. There are Sadie furrows out back, but they’re rapidly filling in.
We’re planning an extremely quiet Thanksgiving here on the Triple L. We have so much to be grateful for, all of us. High on the list is the fact that I don’t have to get on an airplane today or tomorrow. As I write this, the bird is thawing out in a sink full of ice water. Slow process, that, but of course it’s important to be safe. Picked up a few tips last night, listening to one of my favorite podcasts, “The Splendid Table”. Now, to hook up a dog sled and mush my way to the grocery store.
Not. Sadie and Bernice, beagle and Yorkie respectively, aren’t up to the task.
That’s the news from Spokane.
And, oh, yeah. More snow.
