About a month ago I had some visitors in my front yard. There were 4 deer wandering around the neighborhood. By the time I thought about grabbing my camera this was the only one left lingering in my yard. It was in the middle of the afternoon and I was surprised to see them taking their time, nibbling at the plants, and then slowly walking to the next house to try out other tasty treats. We also have a friendly skunk in the area who likes to walk past our house early evenings and let us know he/she's making it's rounds. I get worried that the little stinker will find a way into our basement and then we'll really have some smells floating through the rafters!

Well, our plans for Thanksgiving have been changed. Mom and Dad's furnace isn't working so they don't want to leave and have the pipe freeze. Go figure! They can heat their home with the space heater and wood stove but leaving for 3 days would really be risky. So, we are going to use the back of plan of everyone gathering at Mom and Dad's, bringing lots to eat, and enjoying family time instead of slot machines. I was looking forward to going to the beach and the casino...but, we really could use the money to pay some bills and buy groceries instead. It's really a blessing that we stay home because the weather is so bad! We are having record cold weather and icy/snowy roads already. EWWWWWW! I'm definitely not a Winter person.

Not much else going on here. It's almost 2 am so I guess I should get to bed. I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!

Big Hugs!
