November sunset and other stuff

Yesterday was one of those rare moments when I looked out the living room doors and saw an amazing sight! The sunset was so dramatic with the sun shining a bright pillar of light up into the heavens. I must have taken a half dozen shots, but this one was the best. This is the time of year when the sunsets are spectacular and I keep my camera handy during the afternoon hours.

And, speaking of afternoon hours, that's the time the boys have a snooze. Spike likes the back of the love seat and Sluggo prefers to lay on the tiles in front of the nice, warm wood stove. Gee, do ya think they're spoiled????

Yesterday was also our day to run to the Ark Animal Shelter to pick up two cats, a small Pomeranian and a Yellow Lab to transport them to the vet for various and sundry procedures. The little Pom whose name was "Chubbs" was in a crate and yapped the whole trip while Tiana, the Lab sat patiently in the back seat of the Jeep. Nary a peep out of the cats. Normally, we have quite a chorus in the back.

I always take some baked goodies for the ladies at the Ark. After all, they deserve something for all good deeds they do. I took them a plate of the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies I made.

A busy day, indeed!

Oh, I also found a really neat site. It's called Pete Bakes and is really interesting! Check it out when you have a free moment.

Life is Good

Hugs, Giddy

One of these days I hope to see one of your spectacular sunsets in person! That's an amazing pillar of light..truly beautiful. I wish I could photograph sunsets as well as you!
Those boys are so handsome they deserve a little spoiling :)
Oatmeal cookies are a big favorite of mine and yours look delicious! You're so sweet to take cookies to the shelter ladies.
Lucky animals too :) I'm sure you and H give them plenty of love as well as transport.
We're having a wintery week! Bah humbug!

I just checked out his site. It is interesting. I read back a few pages and then saved it for further exploration. It's nice to see a 24-yr old so interested in baking.

Your neck of the woods looks beautiful as it begins to dress in its winter finery. I think a cellar full of wine and a big crock of soup sounds like a fine way to spend the winter! I ran out of wine a couple of weeks ago and am waiting for the wine distributor (at work) to bring me a case. Hopefully it will arrive tomorrow.
