November 21-

The fog rolled in on the 20th and it seemed to linger and linger.   This was mid-afternoon Monday and not even at the worst that it was during the day.  

I am not one to complain about the weather, but it was cold, damp and just general BLAH weather.   I have never been so glad as I was the day I woke up and found sunshine after so many days of this.

The beach- one of th places where I can find the most peace and solitude.   I love the sound of the waves crashing against the shore- of the sea salt smell, and endless open space.

My dream- to own a small cottage on the beach that I can have as an escape.  A place to write, take pictures and do all the things that I love.

 I didn’t actually take this picture on November 23rd, but instead when I was traveling with my mom and dad.  I didn’t like the shot that I took on this day particularly, and when I was looking through some vacation pictures, I came across this and decided to share.   

I love the quaintness of it- and the small town we were visiting was also very quaint.  It was somewhat of a ghost town at the time- because it was a ski resort town, but I can imagine that once the snow begins to fall that it’s bustling with activities and people.

The fabulous Mister Mistoffelees, who is so sweet and well- brings joy to my life each and every day.   Even as I type this- he is lying beside me here on the sofa and if I reach over and pet him he stretches out and begins to purr.   

I’ve had many many cats in my lifetime- but he is probably my favorite of all.    We’ve had him six years now, and I hope that he’s with us for at least 20 more.

We didn’t have Thanksgiving on Thursday since Marcel was working, but instead we celebrated during the weekend when he was free and I could cook up a storm and we could enj0y!   The picture is of the turkey breast that I cooked- still raw, with a few spices and sprigs of rosemary out of my little garden.    It was boneless and skinless- so I wanted to take extra care that it didn’t dry out.   I covered it in bacon, and baked it covered in foil until almost done- the removed the foil so the bacon would crisp.  It was divine if I do say so myself.

After a busy evening in the kitchen- Marcel and I curled up on the sofa to watch a movie and JJ decided to lie on his little cushion and have a nap.   I saw him stretched out and covered him with a blanket.   Surprisingly, he stayed put and I assume enjoyed the warmth of the blanket.  I took a quick picture and it wasn’t long after that, he got up.   I thought it was adorable!

I bought a bag of salted cashews to put on the table for snacking on, and when I poured them in the bowl, I decided to take a quick shot with the ‘eye’  (iPhone) to see how it turned out.    It was better than I thought, considering the light source, or lack thereof, so I decided to make it my picture of the day.
