What a busy weekend. Pappa Bear and I started cooking Sunday around 8am and the last guests left our house around 10pm last night. Needless to say, I don't want to do much of anything today. I'm beat. Dead. Tired. Despite my weariness, I would like to show you some pics of PB cooking and of the nifty little antique disk tiller my father brought down for us, an anniversary present. I'm sure this is not a common item to have on one's wish list, but we are so excited as we will be able to rehab the pastures here next spring - and other pastures in our future wherever we finally settle down. Here, Pappa Bear trusses the turkey. I loved the soft light coming in the windows. Final touches before it went into the oven. Whenever PB concentrates, you can see the furrow between his brows. A new recipe for sweet potatoes with a caramel topping. Scrumptious! The antique disk tiller. Dad got this when it was already an antique, over 40 years ago when he was building my parents' house on Lake Superior, to clear the lawn areas. It has sat outside for over 70 years and is not rusting. Why don't they make things like this anymore? Dad had loaded it up on his trailer all by himself. We wondered how he got it on, and how we were going to get it off again, when we noticed his ratchet winch. He is so clever. All hooked up now and ready to roll over to its parking spot. Notice the brand new plow on the ATV? PB installed that over the long weekend also.
The boys were watching with curiosity as PB parked the disk.
Happy Thanksgiving from Zoey and all of us!
