We hauled out the Christmas decorations on Thanksgiving Day. These are two new ones I just bought in Canada a month or so ago. I love them!
I got these snowman figurines at a yard sale for $1 each.
I love this knitted snowmen I got from Dawn a few years back.
They make me smile. Aren't they CUTE?!
The first of the lights went up on Thanksgiving Day.
My grandmother's Apple Cake.
I don't know who Mrs. Taylor is/was.
I like this cake best in a 9" x 13" pan, but we always had it in a bundt pan when my grandmother and mother made it.
Note: I baked mine at 300 degrees F. for 1 hour in a pan I sprayed with Baker's Joy (you could use Crisco or butter and dust it with flour instead). It's so moist and good. It's worth peeling and chopping those apples! (I used 3 big Granny Smith apples.) It makes a great coffee cake and needs no frosting. You could dust with powdered sugar or drizzle on some powdered-sugar glaze if you wanted.
I made Chex Mix too.
And here's a photo of the Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes.
Recipe link is in my previous post.
I snapped this pic from my car window.
The doe's buddy was on the other side of the road.
We are less than 1/4 mile from our house here.
Just as you go around that bend, our house sits on the left.
The turkeys visit every day at least once.
Sometimes there's just a couple and sometimes there's 30.
They are so funny to watch.
When they see you, they walk real fast with their skinny legs and bob their head up and down. It makes me laugh every time.
I love my Bonnie Bell Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker.
I buy it over and over.
It adds a subtle tint to your lips that I like.
It's nice to wear over matte lipsticks too for a tiny bit of shine.
It's a Thanksgiving miracle!
Okay, it was the Sunday after Thanksgiving, but still.
I've messed up a bunch, but I'm learning and it's fun.
Four more inches or so and I can start decreasing and binding off.
I ditched the circulars and just started flat-knitting this hat.
I'll make two or three this way and then try the circulars again.
It's hard to believe I knitted that big hooded cowl last year:
And I totally forgot how to do any of it!
I'm learning all over again. Sigh.
