A Little This and A Little That

I don't know if anyone else has had problems with Blogger but I just about gave up.  First I couldn't sign in on the blog. I lost my pictures. I thought that I would have to start another blog but it seems to have cured itself.  I think it is a conspiracy and they are having fun with our minds. I'm still trying to get my header pic in place. It wants to be off center.  I hope it cures it self in the next few days.
I have a question to all you egg savvy folks out there.  Are these turkey eggs?  The three speckled eggs are a bit bigger than our brown hen eggs (in the background).  They are really beautiful.  We have two Bourbon Red  turkey hens and one tom.
I celebrated Thanksgiving at work.  Not a bad thing.  This allows others to spend the  time with their families.  Due to work schedules our family celebrates the holiday on the Saturday after. We went to NH and spent the weekend with our daughter Sue and her friend Muji.  They did all of the cooking, cleaning, washing of dishes and it was a blast.  These young women are wonderful cooks.  

For the holiday we had the standard fare, turkey, cornbread dressing, green bean casserole, squash casserole and macaroni and cheese.  Muji makes a wonderful curry chicken. No, not for Thanksgiving. 
 She is always smiling a beautiful smile. 

Ted was very busy making sure the recliner didn't skip town.  I think he grew attached while we were there.

Of course we  took Emma and Lucy.  Sue has a big backyard for them to play in. It took Lucy a little time for adjustment.  "Hey, I am a house dog."

This is my Grandcat, Paco.  He was on his best behavior. He dressed up for the special occasion. I think every cat should wear and tie.

He may dress up but deep down he is a nature lover.  This cat adores flowers.  I love a cat who isn't afraid of showing his feminine side.

No day is complete without a cat on your head and a pup in your lap.  If you will take time to notice the crutches beside me.  Ahem.....I found the only hole in Susan's back yard and I fell into it.  It took me a while to get up.  I was embarrassed, hurt, and getting licked all over my face by the pups.  I limped into the house with help.  Actually, I limped all day Sunday and Monday then decided to go and have it checked out.  Yep, I broke my fibula.  That is the small bone on the outside of your leg.  Just call me Grace.

I am still working, only light duty.  Ted says that he is "driving Mrs. Daisy" to and from work.  He is cooking, cleaning, taking care of me and the animals.  He will need a vacation soon.
He needs your prayers!
Hope all is well with each of you.  For those who are having a difficult times our prayers go out and you are in them.
Much Love and Prayers from Mainely Ewes Farm

hope your bones heal quickly. The eggs could be turkey, I had turkeys years ago but they were white with white eggs.

Melodie said...

Those look like turkey close as I can tell with out seeing them first hand I used to have bourbon reds but mine didn't lay this time of year. I hope your bone mends quickly!

Peggy said...

Sorry about your break. Hopefully it will heal soon and Ted can relax in a recliner. :) Love, love, love the tie on your adorable kitty. You can tell your animal family is loved. The egg are bourbon red egg or at least they look like our bourbon red eggs. Have a very blessed day my friend.

Hey! You've been holding out on us! That Ted cleans up quite nicely! :) Second, I wouldn't know about the eggs - not being inclined to lay any myself. And third, that was a pretty sneaky way to get out of taking care of the goats. Hope you are better soon and Ted holds up. :) If he begins to balk, try a few Peanuts. It usually works for me.

luckybunny said...

Yes! Those are turkey eggs :) That's exactly what you've got. I have Bronze now, but I've had Bourbon reds too, and their eggs are speckled brown - both breeds.

I loved the pictures especially that recliner being well used! lol. Looks like a lot of fun.

Hope you're break is healing!

God Bless Ted.

I share in your blogger frustration.. not at the moment, but I've had smiliar kind of times in the past.. never seem to know why or how? Hope it works out and you don't have to start over!

Hope you have a relaxing day and get healed up!

Marigold said...

Oh, and I forgot to say - Blogger? That would be a VERY big OY.

Or stitches-same thing!! Hope you are better soon and Ted can have more time in the recliner!! Take care!! and be careful !! Lots of winter chores!!

GreyWolf said...

Dear Grace, hope you mend soon. Seems like we all are having trouble with the yards lately. Mine attacked the wife last week and twisted her knee. Then jumped up in my face twice yesterday.

the cake chick said...

Curse you Blogger is all I can say too! I have been having so many problems with it too!

Hope you get that leg mended up, a busy time of year to be laid up.

No idea about the eggs but they sure are pretty.

Callie said...

Sure hope you are feeling much better now. Good to know you have loving paws and hands to take care of you.

What a nice day you guys had. The menu sounded delicious with the mac-n-cheese. One of my favorites. Just ask my hips. Your dogs are so beautiful. So sorry to hear about your leg. I hope it will be healed for Christmas.

Lili said...

Oh no a broken leg just in time for Christmas. So sorry to hear of it. Your grand cat is absolutely adorable. Hope you have a recliner at home that Ted will let you use, afterall he's going to be mighty busy I'm sure. ~Lili
