A good day to stay home, near the wood stove, curl up with a good book and read or knit, or both! Temps are in the single digits and may not budge for quite some time.
The view to Mt. Desert Island is icy and crisp in the dry, arctic air today. We only get a good view of Cadillac Mountain in the winter, when the leaves are gone from the maple trees. This morning was a good view.
I put a turkey in the oven this morning for our early afternoon dinner. They were on sale at Thanksgiving, so I purchased two and put one in the freezer. Being the frugal person that I am, I bought the $.59 per pound one instead of the $.99 per pound. I was wondering what the difference was and when I thawed this baby out, I noticed she had one wing tip missing. I guess since it was not "perfect", it got relegated to the less expensive pile. Well, honestly, who is going to miss a wing tip? We don't even eat them, as they get thrown into the stock pot. On the positive side, she had two necks in the cavity and Leroy and the Boys (the crows) are feasting today, as well!
H has decided to take over the kitchen island as his painting studio today. I wonder what masterpiece he's working on? Stay tuned!
