Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts



We’re still working on that huge turkey – I commented that I was considering getting a slightly smaller bird next year (perhaps a mere 18# instead of 22#?) but Himself didn’t seem too keen on that idea, so he’d better not fuss about eating turkey soup, turkey and gravy, turkey casserole …

The weather’s currently got the construction project stalled – next step is to pour the basement floor, and there haven’t been enough warmer days in a row to do it. It doesn’t help that we got a late start because it kept raining. (/whine)

Knitting is mostly for a deadline project, but I have been spinning some nice Border Leicester roving that’s aged in the stash for a couple of years. No specific project in mind yet – I guess I’ll see what it wants to be.

I was poking around YouTube (looking for a particular Christmas song, but haven’t found a version I like yet), but I did find To Morrow, an old Kingston Trio number, and the scary thing is that I remember most of the lyrics, which are a bit of a brain twister.

  1. Have you ever tried turkey tetrazini? Yum! I’ve also done turkey and cheese enchiladas. There are tons of things you can do to not be so sick of it..

  2. Boy. Did that song bring back memories;–) And, turkey shepherd’s pie is excellent as well.

  3. lovely sky!
    we’re almost out of turkey…
    except for the two meat filled bits of turkey stock that I’ve got stashed in the freezer to make soup with.
    But the rest of the leftovers are gone.

  4. Today at the airport I had a nice tasty salad with cubed turkey, bacon bits, tomatoes and ranch dressing on romaine. Sort of a turkey club salad. I know I want it again. 😀
