Which brings me to this very amusing picture that my daughter Christie sent via WhatsApp last night. When this was taken around 1980 WhatsApp and all the rest of the social media stuff was pure science fiction.
I always got up at about 5 a.m. on Thanksgiving so that I could feed the animals..and then get the turkey into the oven for a long slow cook. Bear in mind that cooking is not my best attribute, however I did this for years and remember oh so well all the routines and traditions that surrounded it. My husband Bill must have taken this picture…..again long before digital cameras. Happy memories:)
This photograph was taken around the same time….although here I am doing something I feel more comfortable with……
Its hard to believe that we are now entering the festive season. The past year seems to have melted away.
My daughter Christie will be joining me here on the 16th of December for ten days….for which I am very grateful and then next May I will spend two weeks on the farm with my son Jarrod and his partner Kendle. Happy days indeed.
The beginning of the festive seasons means it’s time for some Christeve the Cat in the Magical Town of Crickadoon images.
Here Christeve the Cat looks down from her favourite tree at the little cottage that looks so cozy and warm…..wishing she had a home of her own…..
Note that the magical hummingbirds surround her……………
Those of us with food in the cupboard and a roof over our heads do indeed have much to be thankful for. It’s vital that we remember all those who are not so fortunate…..
