I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving with family and friends. This year my youngest sister, Sandi, visited us again which is so fun for us. She arrived on TG day so we had a chicken noodle soup & fresh bread supper with Sandi and our neighbor, Dick; and then together we prepared our
Thanksgiving for the three of us on Friday.
I spent the previous week making pies; chocolate coconut, chocolate pecan, strawberry-raspberry, 2 old fashioned apple pies, and caramel apple pie. On TG, I made a pumpkin pie. The others all went into the freezer. I LOVE baking pies from scratch, the crust is the fun part otherwise it is just assembling. But when you create a perfect crust, that is satisfaction!
I was happy to see the snow and will bake bread today. Those two things always go together for me.

Buddy loves for Sandi to visit because
she is his willing playmate several times
every day. Sandi can't resist the swings.

to play with him! See the pullets in the

and not all are laying yet! Yikes!!
