Not much new on the home front, so I'm just rambling on about the past week.
Sluggo has been a great help with making the bed. I guess he's making sure we didn't let any mice in under the blanket.
We did have one relatively mild day and took our usual three mile walk around Sorrento Harbor. I never noticed this display of knots before.
There was only one lonely sailboat in the harbor. At the height of the summer, H counted at least 70+.
We came across these Evening Grosbeaks feasting on fallen apples. I suspect they were quite mushy after being frozen for so long.
H made us a delicious pasta dish for lunch one day. It had chicken, artichoke hearts and capers in it and was quite tasty. He's a wonderful cook and in the summer becomes the "Barbecuetioner", smoking ribs, pulled pork and other grilled delights. I think I'll hang on to him.
This week's bread adventure was baking Challah Braids. They turned out beautifully - almost looked to good to eat!
And last but not least, yesterday H was looking out the office window into the backyard and yelled for me to come quick with the camera. Seems this little guy was nosing around looking for a squirrel snack!
Sorry for the poor quality of the photo, but it was taken through the screened window.
And so ends another busy week in the Great North Woods. More snow forecast for tomorrow. So far, the total is over 82 inches for the season!
Life is Good!
