My days off, I’m relaxing. Or trying to! Darn puppies are noisy thing. But I baked cookies a bit ago, have cinnamon rolls in the oven, both from store bought, not from scratch. I’ve yet to master the art of making cinnamon rolls. These ones were frozen dough, the pan I put them in was a little small so two kinda tucked under in a corner, then deflated when I tried to fix it, but they’ll get eaten. I’m hoping I can get to sleep once I’ve devoured one or two, I started to go to bed then saw they were still out waiting to be baked, had fully risen, ready to go. But I want to be up in time for dinner, taco night is best fresh, or these hogs will eat it all!

Ok, I suck at following my plans. Two cinnamon rolls later, I’ve got three puppies fed inside, two are playing, one ate too much and is sleeping off a tummy ache on dads chest, and my kitty is upset that not only is his humom paying attention to dogs, but gave them HIS toy to chew on. As I started to attach pictures, someone piddled, meaning time to go back out as soon they will all need to potty, and probably .

These three are kept on the porch with a dog house, heat lamp, and wood chips for clean up ease. I need to start bringing them in on occasion to socialize, give them the attention their mom isn’t, etc. Once they started teething she was out. I add puppy milk replacement to their food, because I know they need it. They should be getting fully weaned soon, but it’s not time for that yet. And I’m afraid we may not have gotten buddy fixed quite in time, dads girl Sable is starting to show, so hopefully that will be another small litter, and I can find homes for pups when they are of age. These will be good guard dogs, loyal to their humans, quick to sound an alarm, and willing to fight off evil skunks! I’ve got to find homes for most of the older ones and get the other male fixed. Then start on the females.

Rainy and drizzly here today. Still have't covered the pond with it's winter solar cover as the weather has been up and down. Just when I think it's time, we get a warm up.

Pulling out regrowing lilies. 5 buds hitting the surface, they are just not opening.
Cut back some bushes, pulled lotus leaves, a nice 60ish day, cloudy and murky. 67 yesterday, 65 today.

Dang 5 back surgeries and still fighting the good fight
lol when you wrote this I thought you meant you had 5 surgeries, I have not, it was late hubby. Which in a way led to his death. Heavy pain meds, the last was methadone, had a accidental OD. Started drinking coffee, which led to retention of the meds which led to death.

I have always remained in a state of mind that kept me from buying airpods, especially the stupid pros, like $250, noooo way.

then they were 50 bucks off, still way to expensive but I bought them, not worth the 200 that I paid for them, much less 250, but now I can flex! ( for those who don't know what flexing is it is basically where low life people show off materialistic things they have )

Lol. Flex while you can, you’ll be an adult way too soon with bills, a significant other, maybe kids, then pond costs, and then next thing you know, you’re broke.

too Tired. Got home from work, fell asleep for a bit less than two hours, then off to big town for my new tree, and home improvement stuff, groceries, etc. I bought a 16ish inch potted tree for our Christmas tree this year, with plans to redo the living room soon there’s just no way to do a full sized tree, and we can plant it come spring. Picking paint colors, I’m gonna “flex” that I bought a very nice paint sprayer for hubby. Once ceiling beams and sheet rock are in place, we are going to make a cat walkway about the 8ft mark, it’s 10 ft ceiling in here. Leaving beams as natural wood, going to paint and above the walk way cream, below it will be a light tan color, possibly with a light copper glaze. Still need to do the copper accents in the kitchen.

I thought it went;

window shop other's ponds
find shovel
dig your own pond
squint at the liner bill
close eyes to the rock bill
feel good your fish are feeders
flex with your feet up and a good drink
get electric bill for pond
stop flexing
start looking for second job
make pond larger
buy more fish
receive larger electric bill
buy more expensive fish
flex again but this time, ignoring all those growing worries re bills and no second job
turn and look at your family; the kids and dog all with their tongues out, looking pretty pathetic
turn back to the pond and force up that flex smile
refill your glass
broke? who cares--I can FLEX!

Today is my “Monday “ I go back to work just in time to have to come home in the morning, prep all the side dishes for thanksgiving, hopefully the turkey will be cooked in time for me to eat before I have to go to bed. Then thanksgiving night, I work a normal shift, have a truck delivering a load, everyone else is working half shifts. I expect I’ll have a ton of folks in for eggs and butter, which we don’t carry.

We had a pre thanksgiving cooked turkey, decided to cook it yesterday, it came out perfect!

Took a package of ranch dressing mixed it in real butter. Smeared the mix under the skin so darn good! We cooked a 20 lb one for the two of us. Today we will have a Thanksgiving meal with the trimmings. The turkey smell will still be in the house as I will cook the bones for turkey soup stock.

The buzzards enjoyed the gizzards I tossed out in the back field!

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
