We took the forest route from Acton to Pasadena on the first leg of our journey to spend Thanksgiving with the California Cousins. Hydra drove back and turned around so I could get a shot of this tree, which he has grown fond of during his weekly drives to Glendale to ATF Citizens Academy sessions.
I was thankful that I was not one of these bicyclists. I respect what they’re doing, but can’t say that peddling up ten miles and then screaming back down doesn’t hold any charm for me at all!
The appetizer spread that Hydra and I brought. I will post the recipe for the mini quiches and mini rosemary/chive corn muffins in time for the next big holiday, I promise. I am going to buy another mini-muffin pan. Trust me, anything made in a mini-muffin tin increases in appeal exponentially.
CuzM leads the traditional holiday telephone call to the Michigan Cousins during which we compare outside temperatures and attempt to make them groan out loud. Redwing was in Florida this time…foiled! (Note the glasses on the webcam for that personal touch.)
CuzP’s latest stained glass work. It really shimmers in the light!
Elsewhere in the yard: rumor has it that the birds don’t actually use this birdhouse. Wonder why?
You may very well have had a turkey as good as this one, but you did not have one that was better. So tender and moist. Maybe CuzM’s nickname should be changed to The Turkenator.
About to start the feast. Just wanted you to know that The OC (Orange County, CA) is not all about reality shows, South Coast Plaza and The Nixon Library.
