I’m posting a little late this week because, frankly, I just plain forgot to work on my post Saturday night! Oops. I have an excuse though – Thanksgiving Torpor. I was supposed to go visit my brother & his family too, but Thanksgiving Torpor set in & I just basically played Words With Friends & watched college football instead. Sorry Joe & Bren! But now I’m back home & coming out of my food haze, so I’m going to try to be coherent here.

Critters from our back yard.
Dr. M & I went on a little ramble & saw some this terribly cute burro.
Sunday, November 18th
I was laughing at our clock – I do believe that the sun was hitting the outside thermometer because I’m pretty sure Sunday’s temp was NOT over 100 degrees!

Hawk in flight.
Dr. M enjoyed the fire pit while I was out having dinner with my friend Joanne.

Premature Christmas decorations – come on people it’s not even Thanksgiving yet! They still make me smile though.
Dr. M took some great sheep pictures – go here to see them.
I love how the chickadees come to the feeder so cautiously, grab a seed & head back to the tree to eat it.

We headed to NC today. We only had one real traffic snafu – on the only significant two lane stretch of our journey (they were painting lines on the road – I’m sure they thought that was very necessary the day before Thanksgiving!). Anyway, I made Dr. M take this picture while we were waiting – I like the hay rolls in the wagon.
On the way down we took our usual detour by a sheep farm.
Thursday, November 22nd – Thanksgiving Day
I love Amy’s fashion sense :)
Go here to read about our Thanksgiving feast.
One of my favorite parts (besides all the food!) was being able to Skype with my nephew who is in Army medic training in Santa Fe.
Here is the State of the Bug – wearing Mamaw’s hat!

Daddy & Amy’s decorations.
Dr. M took lots of pictures of birds. Go here to see them – there are some great shots there.
I took a picture of Daddy & Amy’s calendar with my nephew’s picture on it – cool!
It’s the moon!
Go to Sara’s blog here to see the blogs of all the other Project 365 participants. Have a great week!
Most of our photos are taken with a 12 megapixel Nikon D5000 DSLR, using a 55-200mm zoom lens. This is the camera that Dr. M takes with him most days. The Bug uses our new Nikon Coolpix S6200 most of the time. If you’re interested in which camera was used for a particular shot, just ask!
