Can you believe that Thanksgiving has now come and gone and Christmas is on it's way?  I will say, since our weather has turned a little colder, it at least feels seasonal now.  I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving full of good fun, lots of laughter and stories abound.  We went the non-traditional route this year.  We grilled a beer can chicken.  It was so moist and juicy......scrumptious!  With the chicken we had butternut squash, salad from the garden, creamed baby red potatoes, homemade bread, homemade butter, and pumpkin roll for dessert.  Yum!

Speaking of the lettuce in the garden, you can see from the photo above the mornings are a bit chilly now.  It's holding it's own though!  I cover it with a row cover to keep it from getting too hard a frost.  I thought this past snow would be the end of it but a pleasant surprise was the lettuce standing up tall surrounded by the freshly fallen snow.

We decided {against better judgement I'm sure} to put up 2 Christmas trees.  The large one is in the entry room and the small one is on a side table in the dining room.  So far {knock on wood}, Jackson has pretty much left them alone.  I've asked Jay to please secure the large one so we don't find it on the ground one morning.

Speaking of Jackson, he found himself in time-out only once this weekend.  Not bad.  He just gets so crazy that you can't stop him from terrorizing the house and the other animals.  The only way to slow the guy down is time-out.  He glared at me the entire time he was in there but once out, went on his merry way to hang out on the bench, sprawled out in the sun.  He forgives and forgets quite easily.

Hope you all have a great week!

If you’re just joining in, the “Change Your Life In 2018” series is my quest to make some small changes this year. Rather than setting easily forgotten resolutions I wanted to focus on 12 changes that would help me learn and grow as a person. I’ve chosen to focus on one change per month so that it could not only become a more manageable goal, but I have a better chance at making these new habits...
