I'm with you, Daniel. Not even my dog (Dot) stirs.

I'm a night person, always have been.

A great way to start your day, Daniel!

This is my coffee time of day.  I'm the only one who gets up this early.  It's chilly outside.  I peruse the news, via internet.  Nothing much different going on in the world.

So it's a cup of coffee, some crosswords, and daydreaming about what I will plant in the kitchen garden next year.

Daniel, a splendid photo of you and Rufus enjoying the cold winter's night in front of the fire. I like reading about your experience on behalf of Meals on Wheels and not at all surprised. You are a giving sort of fellow. Are you aware that an interpretation of introvert is that you turn inward for wisdom and guidance and don't have to look to others for directions. You are a self-starter. You know what is right for you. I would interpret that as meaning strong, self-reliant, self-motivated, and competent.

Great picture, Daniel!! I love it.

As far as me having a "long-lived" family, really not. Only my dad (97.5) and his mother (100) lived to a ripe old age. My mother died at 83--her mother at 84 and father 35 (leukemia). Dad's dad lived to 85. Still, I plan to make it a century's worth.

"Diet" day today after Thanksgiving and a pizza party at my daughter's last night. Too much for the tummy.

Aw, so cozy.

I've ordered some Italian coffees from amazon.,....looking forward to trying them.

Having my morning cuppa Joe with my buddy Rufus.  Last night was chilly so I started the fire before doing anything else.

Randy you have a long lived family!  I hope you have lots of good memories.

Our pie came out great!  The second day, I think they taste better than the first day.  I dont know if I can tell the difference between a butternut or banana squash pie, vs one with actual pumpkin.  The pumpkin might be just a little darker after baking.

We put Ning's chicken bones through the blender along with some broth, and ground them up fine for a treat for Rufus.  He liked that a lot.

Had my first cup of Kroger's medium dark roast coffee this morning. The can says "lively and robust". It was good, but I've had "robuster".  The coffee was with a light breakfast (muffin and fruit) after a fairly heavy Thanksgiving meal yesterday.

I think I mentioned I spent the day alone which I didn't mind. I'm used to it. The food turned out delicious, if I do say so myself.

It's a shame the "good ol' days" are long gone: Thanksgiving at my grandmother's house--on both sides, alternating years. You talk about good cooking! Yesterday was my grandmother's 125th birthday, if she were alive. (She did make it to 100.) So, I reminisced a lot in my mind.

Daniel, I just can't see you as an introvert. But, if you say so, congratulations on doing your Meals on Wheels stint. How'd the pumpkin pie turn out? I had a Cornish game hen last year. Chicken thighs this T-giving.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Joan, such a lovely memory.  That photo means a lot!

I have some bread rising.  This week I roasted and pureed this year's crop of pie pumpkins and squash, portioned into ziplocks and froze.  One goes for a pie today.  We'll see if the pumpkins make as good a pie as the squash does.  I made a refrigerator dough yesterday for breadrolls today.  Ning will have a game bird. 

Yesterday I spent an hour at the dog trainer with Rufus, and 2 hours at the grocery store as a "Meals on Wheels" greeter - handing out cards that encourage people to give a meal for shut-in seniors by contributing at checkout.   So not-me, the worlds most introverted introvert!  After, I bought what I remember as needed for green bean casserole.

Joan, I'm hoping to complete that China pattern.  It's not there yet.  One of the challenges is I drop and break things :-)
