I Guess It’s Sandwiches for Supper.

Fishing. We do a lot of it, as you probably know.

The other day was probably our worst day of fishing, ever.

Certainly not because we didn’t catch anything. As a matter of fact, The Hubbster managed to pull one in on nearly every cast, as soon as the line hit the water.

What was the problem, then?

Well…

One of the many.

Another.

Yeah… are you seeing a trend? Somehow, he found the bluegill nursery, and couldn’t get out.

Oh, and a leaf, for good measure.

The buzzards were even circling, clearly hoping that we were relying on our catch to avoid starvation.

Not today, buzzards. Not today. We have sandwich fixins in the house.

Avery found something disgusting to roll in, true to dog protocol, so she had a great day.

Like Avery, The Wee Little Miss wasn’t interested in fishing this time. She has some kind of project in mind that requires looking for enormous branches that have fallen from the trees.

Now, I’m all for her projects, as they always turn out impressively. I do hope it comes together quickly, however; our garage, where these branches are being stored, is filling up very quickly! Not only that, the garage is actually our music room, and there are so many trees in there right now, I don’t think there would be space for a toddler to play a harmonica.

Let’s see, what else. Oh, yes. I put up the Thanksgiving decor, which is nice, but will never compare to my enjoyment of Halloween.

Two weeks until the US celebrates Thanksgiving. Are you ready? Any fantastic plans or interesting dishes you intend to try? Me, I’m more of a holiday food purist. Roasted turkey and the regular sides. I am going to try a keto pecan pie this time, though, as sugar seems to make us all feel unwell. Fingers crossed — no worries, I’ll have some home-made ice cream on hand, just in case it’s a disaster!

Surprise!

Our little goat has been behaving strangely for some time.

Initially, we thought she was sick.

Yesterday, however, I discovered she was not ill.  She was pregnant!  What a surprise to walk out to the goat pen to discover not one, but TWO goats!  She was barely old enough to breed when we got her, but apparently barely enough counts when it comes to exposure…

Meet Noel (named so, as he is an early Christmas gift).

The llamas have been super protective of both kid and mom.
