My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, ... thank you!

Black Friday? Yeah, Right!

Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day here in the USA. Which means today is "Black Friday" - the day that many people do their Christmas shopping because retailers have supposedly fantastic deals to entice those buyers. I didn't leave the house today. I didn't run to the grocery store, or stop by the dollar store for another turkey baster (Kid has "misplaced" part of the one I've had forever).

I stayed home, read, made stuffing, ate leftover pecan pie, and tried not to nag Hubby to change the rabbit's cage. It was almost a week, and trust me, the ammonia smell is overpowering.

Why don't I do it?

Because I do just about everything else... I shouldn't have to change the bunny's poop-tray too!

So... I guess, in a way, it was black friday for me ... the black cloud hanging over the sweet little french angora rabbit's cage could kill anyone's digestion system or smelling abilities. I've nearly thrown up 7 times in the last 15 minutes, and that's "nearly" because I hate throwing up.

I know. TMI.

Good night. Sleep well.
