Tasha Tuesday

With morning temperatures in the single digits (celsius), our sunrise walks with Tasha are brisk. It's nowhere near bone-chilling cold; we haven't had a freeze yet. It's just crisp and frosty enough to keep us moving. It's quite invigorating. Tasha takes it in stride, as it were. Her thick coat (do I need to say that she needs a good brushing?) keeps her warm enough, I suspect.

We can feel the holiday season approaching. Thanksgiving is next week (for us Americans) and we'll be going out to shop for the annual leg of lamb a day or two before. The store circulars are already filled with ads for holiday foods, toys, and decorations. I need a new string of lights. Ho, ho, ho!


  1. I do love that shaggy dog (don’t tell her I called her a dog). Single digits and not bone-chilling? It was 15 the other evening, SG said THAT was bone-chilling.

  2. Leg of lamb sounds excellent for Thanksgiving, look forward to hearing the details of the menu. I loathe the processed, dry commercial turkeys that are foisted on us.

  3. mitch, funny thing for a guy from SD.

    michael, :)

    emm, we've been doing the T-Day lamb thing for as long as I can remember. It comes in handy in France, since whole turkeys are generally not available until Christmas time.

  4. The tree that hides the forest?


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
