Thanksgiving and Before

I realized while clearing my camera to take to the family gathering, that I had a number of pictures that had not been loaded on my laptop because it was sick for a few's much better now btw, thanks for anyway, here's what I haven't posted

pumpkin puree....really pretty, but lots of work for about 5 cups of puree

pumpkin bread...not too shabby, still a few chunks in the freezer

new feral kittens...ay yi yi, but they're so cute

oops, a sweet dog shot just snuck in'd that happen?

and a sweet, giant kitty shot...where are those animals coming from?

a new custom-order gourd

lots and lots of fire shots....probably influenced by the amount of beer consumed around those fires

and lastly......worth the wait imo....a beautiful Baby...she looks just like her favorite Aunt Lee

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

We've had this grill for a was functional and fun to look at, but has since been replaced with something less...dangerous...

not wanting to get rid of a perfectly good keg that's been cut in half, I repurposed it...

at first as a potting bench.....only mildly functional

then it occurred to me that with shorter legs and no top, it might be a good firepit, so I gathered tools (friends also challenged the size of our previous fire pit, causing me to feel a bit...compulsive, competitive, creative)

and sawed the legs off to what I thought might be a workable length

a little too long...

another cut and it was perfect

big fires are now possible in the fort AND I have the other I just need a little welding machine...maybe I should write Santa?
