Month: November 2004

  • Chilly Cranky

    My sweet blue male kitten is so fluffy, he looks like a nice warm slipper. Yes, I am chilled. It’s a cooler day with no sun most of the day, just a few moments here and there earlier this afternoon, but that was it. It’s not really “cold” but it feels so when in the […]

  • Sci-Fi

    I’ve liked some Science Fiction since I can remember, but haven’t ever delved deep into it on my own, only sometimes finding something new every so often, and clinging to it. I am a SF lover, just constrained by my own ignorance of what’s out there. I like Cordwainer Smith, and tried to find whatever […]

  • Turkey Scramble

    Turkey (Left-Overs) Scramble Cubed Cooked Turkey, or chopped Butter Gravy In large frypan melt butter and toss in the stuffing and move it around here and there until it’s hot, or how hot you like it: crispy or not, if you like it more crispy use more butter, or use less butter if you want, […]

  • Turkey Aftermath

    Dinner is over, left-overs put away, some of the dishes washed, some not. 🙂 It was a hard afternoon. I didn’t get the turkey in the oven until later than I wanted. It took until after 5pm for it to be done. Then it had to sit, of course, while the stuffing was taken out […]

  • New of the Holiday, and part was bad but better now

    Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! I have bad thing new too, though. Last night somehow Strider, my favorite cat, got missing. [Update: 4:30pm He’s found!] Around 4am I heard someone downstairs and the garage door in the kitchen then shut loud. Frank went down and was Russell that did it. Well, I couldn’t get back to sleep […]

  • Thanksgiving Eve

    Today is, as Russell desires me to call it “Thanksgiving Eve” since there is a “Christmas Eve” :laugh: I’m currently making Victoria’s Birthday Cake for tomorrow, a New York Cheesecake. It’s in the oven with less than 40 minutes to go. I’m seriously thinking about making the Turkey and Stuffing today, but I’m not sure […]

  • Movies for December

    In the previous post today I refered to our “Newest Tradition” of going to the movies as a family on Christmas Day. This year I wasn’t sure what was coming out, so I went to and checked out UPCOMING releases. I found these: Blade: Trinity comes out on Dec 8 Lemony Snicket comes out […]

  • Holiday and Traditions

    This week is a holiday week in our home, as it is for so many in the US. But for us, it’s a double-holiday on the same day, Victoria turns Six on the 25th. This is part and parcel of life for us since her birth, with her being born the evening before Thanksgiving Day, […]

  • The babies (kittens)

    Here are the kittens, picture taken this morning: The post with the first kitten pictures [as well as the story] in it

  • Maisy’s-21st-Century-Blue-Plastic-Smilies

    I’ve changed some of my SMILIES today. I created these in Photoshop Elements 2 Using the WOW-Plastic Style as a base. My motivation for creating new Smilies myself was: I suddenly had the inspiration of what to do: use Photoshop Elements as I use it to make other graphics, using the neat stuff in it […]

  • My Palm Vx

    I have a Palm Vx which we got … sometime ago. History of it is a long time, as I had purchased DateBook5 for it soon thereafter, and in doing some things with my Palm yesterday and today I had to ressurect the registration code, which mean hunting through old Outlook files. I found it: […]

  • Production is up

    Good day today for the Australorps … Four Eggs … that’s 100% of them laying today! Yesterday we had three. We had a jumbo egg from their pen this past weekend as well. [notable since really big eggs are not often laid by younger layers, and the only other we had from them came the […]

  • Cats, cats, and more cats

    On Saturday we went out on errands, shopping, of course, and Frank surprised me at Petsmart [where we go for the kitty litter we get] and told me I could pick out a kitten if I saw one I liked. 🙂 There were some young kittens, and several older kittens, as well as a few […]

  • Whisper Mill Dead

    My Whisper Mill just died this morning. I was grinding Spelt [to make the bread I needed to make today], the WM clogged up the shoot, and instantly shut off itself, fuse throw. Fine, that happens sometimes with spelt. No biggie. It happens so fast. I cleaned the flour shoots all out, dumped out the […]

  • Rain Rain Rain

    It’s in the low 40’s and raining, with more rain coming this way for awhile, possible thunderstorms later today. Thunderstorms would be nice, actually. We’ve had very few of them in 2004. [I love watching and listening to thunder and lightening!] So it’s dark today, overcast, constant drizzle since the rain started right after the […]

  • Cooler weather is here

    Autumn is here. Summer is over. The day, yesterday, was in the 60’s but the house chilly. It was sunny, but the house chilly. It’s chilly now, early morning in the house (I’ve been up since 2am). The forescast for the next 15 days is for the highs at the most in the low 60’s […]

  • My Hennies in November

    My hens have been molting for a long time, last eggs we had from them were in August, but not many. The babies, as I call our youngest, still Pullets really, the Australorps, started laying in June, and never really “got into it”. I have no idea why they ALL stopped laying mid-summer. I mean […]
