A Foggy Sunday Morning

Posted on

Warm and foggy. Weather that changes by the hour. It is fairly warm out, and the fog is heavy in the yard and meadow.

I have been spending a lazy morning, finishing sealing the envelopes to send the Christmas cards, cleaning out the kitchen freezer to make room for the venison we are getting Tuesday, and checking out the Christmas lights to see if any strings need new bulbs. I also had to rearrange things in the basement freezer, which is pretty full again. Last week I just added three containers of turkey stock. Time to make some soups.

I did pop outside to feed the birds and to watch the red breasted nuthatch ignore me while he got breakfast from the feeder, letting me stand there and take his picture.

Back to putting out the Christmas decorations, like my bed post people I found years ago at a crafts fair at the county fairgrounds. I think finding special items made by local artists is my favorite source for decorations.

If the fog burns off, I will be putting up my lights on the trees outside. Otherwise, a lazy afternoon of watching football and eating steamed shrimp and flatbread pizza. Gotta make more room for that 50-60 pounds of deer meat. Oh well, whatever doesn’t fit will just have to become a large pot of chili sometime this week.

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.
