We went to Kentucky for a church homecoming, and took some time to check out properties near Irvine that we saw on Zillow. Somehow our GPS got confused in the mountains, but we found the property I had my eye on purely by accident. It is everything that I want - a view, quiet, and a small house. The only problem is that we aren't ready to retire for anot her couple years, and can't afford two mortgages. I hope the LORD will keep it for us!

Yesterday a package arrived from Mia's parents in Germany. It contained Christmas gifts, a little kate but still appreciated. The blue can is Nuremberg levkuchen, there are glazed nuts, chocolate pretzels and Lindt chocolates,and loose tea, along with boxes of homemade cookies and candies. Most of the goodies I'll share with my co workers.

This is my 2021 resolution: I will start collecting the hair from my hairbrush every day and see how much I have for the entire year. The picture above is the old wad of hair, goodness knows how long I've been adding to it.

My favorite magazine besides MJF is Victoria. It is more of a fine-living magazine with and emphasis on England and France. I wrote a letter and it is in the latest issue!

I had to show off the special totebags that I'm giving to my boss and coworkers. I chose the prettiest front pages during the year and had them printed on canvas bags. These are limited edition goodies!

Maybe this belongs on Farmgirl Kitchen. I made pig candy today and am in hog heaven. Its an easy recipe: roll bacon in dark brown sugar and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. This is from The Sweet Potato Queens book, so you know it is gen u wine. To keep clean up easy, I line broiler pans with foil.

Vanessa---I am so sorry about your kitty cat. Much sadness. Hubby ran over our little dog on his way to work and killed her,---I cried for days. It was dark and evil Walmart do call. I too got contacts stuck on my eye and we were going on a trip the next morning---I finally got it out and I said never again! And yes when I got to my friends house in NC---they all said my eye looked horrid---glasses for me forever!

I transitioned to bifocal contact lenses, but I won't wear them anymore. The lenses are more domed than regular contacts, and they can suction on to an eyeball. I paid a lot for them and wanted to give them a chance. Last night when I got home from work I tried to take them out . The left lens came out easily, but I've always had trouble with the right one. It wouldn't come out and my eye got red and sore around 7 my sweetie offered to take me to urgent care but I was stubborn and said "no I'm fine". Then at 9 I realized I couldn't sleep with them. He nicely took me to the ER after only 10 or so "I told you so". The doctor had to pooch the lens off my eyeball with a swab, with my trying to keep my eye open and relax. Thank goodness it was a quiet night and I was taken care of right away. After a goo nights sleep my eye feels better.

I am sad. My husband called to tell me he accidentally backed over and killed our cat, Trip Hazard. Trip followed me home from a walk and was growing into a fine mouser, but accidents happen. Luckily, we already have a "pet cemetery"area, and that's where he will rest.

She always said they grew best!

This is the new deck off of my mother-in-law's porch. In summer, she will be able to enjoy the view.

Ha Ha Ha! Remember when Mom would steal plants wherever she went? She stole a fern from the Como Conservatory in St Paul MN and she brought a plant home from Germany. I was afraid it would become an invasive species.

Yesterday we went to Mammoth Cave. I'd never been in the cave, and this was a great chance to show Mia part of Kentucky. It was amazing! Everyone was taking precautions to stay safe. I'm afraid a ranger heard me when I told Mia, "quick, grab a rock!" There were no small stones within reach anyway.
The best part was the walking- I worked off a bit of Thanksgiving dinner.

Vannessa! We woke up to the same thing yesterday morning.
I told hubs it was out Thanksgiving hello from the gaggle!
I love when lying in bed and hearing their call

I received a free turkey and apple pie from work and a free pumpkin pie from our realtor. However, turkey has not thawed even though I took it out of the freezer on Monday. We will instead have a baked chicken breast, roast potatoes, steamed brussels sprouts, green beans and a snap pea salad. And then the PIE!

So true---Thanksgiving is just about skipped these days. I like to hear Christmas music the first of December. I too don't like modern Christian music---Christian rock---just listen to real rock or not. Once while I was in college we visited a friend and we heard loud rock music---we thought we were at the wrong house as our friend had just smashed up all his rock albums after becoming a Christian. So funny---he said Christian rock was OK---but it sounded the same to us. I love to hear Elvis sing gospel music.

I am gobsmacked. My workplace plays a Christian music radio station and I usually tune it out because the songs aren't my style. Yesterday I noticed that they began playing Christmas music! Awful! Can't they wait? By the middle of December ill be tired of the songs.

I laughed Audra Rose when you said you made your pie from the flesh. I had a Great Aunt who years ago wanted to try to make a pumpkin pie from a real pumpkin instead of buying it in a can. She did not know where to start so was told by a relative to just use the "insides". So she did: seeds & all! That little deed followed her all her life, story retold each holiday season!
HollerGirl56 Posted - Oct 27 2020 : 1:18:41 PM
Hi Vanessa---thank-you so much for your nice letter and the seeds. I love spaghetti squash and it will go in the ground next spring for sure. Your letter brightened my day . I do appreciate hearing from you. I have been looking at every one's posts and keeping up on all of the goings on---but I have been creeping around like I'm 90 years old and just doing my chores. I hurt my leg hiking in the woods a while back---I could barely walk and still I refused to go to the doctor. Horrible aching pain. Better now and not so grouchy---LOL. Then my ear stopped up and I could barely hear---that was so fun---and then my neck locked up and started hurting. I have never hurt so bad in all my life and all I wanted to do was keep quiet and do the best I could. About recovered now. I will write you back. I love to get letters. That looks like such a good pie. I too use winter squash instead of pumpkin---it cooks up thicker and I think it tastes better. Always love to read what you are up too. You have such a good life.

Last Saturday I bought a cushaw squash. It weighed as much as a well fed baby. On Monday I cut it up, baked it, and made a pie from part of the flesh (oops, sounds like I'm a wicked witch).

We bring treats to work on Tuesdays when we assemble the paper. My boss had told me how her mother made cushaw pie, which led me to try making one. This one is different, it has a Graham cracker crust, but is delicious.
I've saved the seeds from baby Cushaw and will be sending them out in swaps.

This is the new toy my sweetie got for me. It is wonderful! No more slipping as I cut fabric. I will need to get the special tool that changes the blade.
So although he has many faults, this is why we've lasted almost 40 years.
