Whatever I'm doing Kota Kat always has one ear listening, just in case there's a teeny chance that the cupboard door may open and then a treat bag rustle.

A tree on Roosevelt Island covered with peoples' carvings.

Cocktails were plentiful and the company was exquisite, we had a lot of fun at Laurie's birthday partly, and the best part was that the venue was on the other side of the hill, so I only had to stagger to my front door at the end of the evening.

The most delicious pecan pie ever. Gobbled down at the Wayside Inn where Janice and I enjoyed our Thanksgiving lunch.

First snow of the winter and we got about 3". I had to take 4 attempts to get up the hill.

Loved these lights against the evening sky on the way home last night.

The knitting shop in The Plains have knitted a fabulous jacket for the tree outside. Love it!

A Christmas cat with a candle headpiece at a curio store that Janice and I photographed this afternoon.

This interesting little face was peering down at me from the workshop wall this morning while Stuart was getting a new battery installed.

Managed to snap this shot without them realizing. How cute!

Bare trees against the setting sun on the way home from work.

Took a Photoshop class at the Nature Visions Expo but didn't really learn a lot. But it was nice to spend some time with friends.

Our lunch being made today, homemade beef and veggie soup with grilled cheese sandwiches that would be served once we'd finished exploring an old train yard.

These ugly monstrosities have been erected on the outskirts of Marshall, with more on the way. Ugh!

On Rte 50 where the countryside ends and where construction begins. Ugly construction sites have devoured pretty fields for the next 5 miles.

Hard to get creative with the daily photo when I'm stuck lying on my back but I played around with an image of my fireplace and shelf.

My back went early this morning so the day spent laying down, unable to sit, and Rosie Lee perched on me for most of the day. Kota was a little more considerate and sat on the back of the sofa looking down on me.

Waiting for my acorn squash to cook. I don't like savory things made sweet so no sugar for mine. These are cooking with a smear of hazelnut oil, garlic, sage and thyme, then will be sprinkled with grated sharp cheddar, sea salt and coarse pepper when they emerge. My mouth is watering while writing this!

Printing for a very important event in the future for some yappy clients.

Saw this on my way to work this morning and had to scratch my head. Do they mean yesterday or this coming Friday, 7th?

Nearly had a scrap on the sofa tonight. Luckily I looked up in time to stop any fists from flying.

With today's blustery and rainy weather, it seemed a perfect opportunity to knock up a leek, potato and turkey soup with blue cheese crumbled over the top. Delicious!
