While positioning myself to back my little Subaru into the garage on Saturday, I happened to catch this trio enjoying the last sunny day we will have for a while. Rarely do I see Holly hanging out this closely with the llamas. It's not that they dislike each other. It's more that they move in different social circles. Of course, as soon as Strawberry saw me stop the car and get out with the camera, she stood up and that was the end of that.
Whew ..... is it over already ? Thanksgiving is only a memory because, though my camera sat on the kitchen counter the whole time, I never picked it up. Between getting that huge meal on the table (which, even with two ovens, requires some real juggling ) , visiting with the grands and trying to participate in all the different conversations going on in various rooms, the whole day is a bit of a blur. I'm always a little stunned that a meal I spend nearly a week preparing can be decimated in about 30 minutes ! Last night was turkey hash for dinner and I made and froze the turkey stock this morning, so I'm ready to refocus. Believe it or not, I am sick of having so much food around. Right now, I would love a week at an upscale spa where someone else prepared lovely little portions of healthy, low calorie meals and served them to me ( and also did all the cleaning up! ). Oh well, a woman can dream, can't she?
So, now it's on toward Christmas. I'm working on a few small knitting projects, some gifts, some things to sell at "Art on the Farm", which will be held at my friend Lindy's Seldom Scene Farm on December 10. I'll post all the details soon. It will be a fun event and well worth the drive out to her beautiful farm. ( I have a serious case of barn envy ! )
