As a follow up, Bobette the last little rescue cat is doing wonderful and she is the "squatiest" little ball of cat with a funny little corkscrew pig tail! This week I rode through the meadow where I trapped her and there was this mangy looking coyote just sitting out there staring me down. I SWEAR he was saying, "YOU took my meaty little cat morsel, you b&#@h."
I made the entire Thanksgiving meal from my favorite Clean Eating Magazine, including this healthy Pear Pomegranate Pie:
We spent the weekend after putting up our Christmas decorations! This year we've finally made the big move to a fake tree!
And I'm already thrilled about it! Every year, we finally go pick one out, and then it sits in a bucket of water until the Mister can get time to put the lights on, and then we have to find busy mid-week time to decorate it, and it is a constant source of stress for me because it doesn't get done entirely until the week before Christmas and I never get to enjoy it. NOT this year! Oh no. Ten luscious feet of pre-lit goodness was up on Friday morning and completely decorated by Saturday. This left time to get all the rest of the decorations out and lights up and we've been enjoying them immensely every night! We even have lights on our chicken coop.
And in the Christmas spirit, I took 2 classes at one of my favorite shops in Berkeley, Castles in the Air. SO fun. In the first one, we made this:
I think I enjoyed the second one even more. We made Victorian Christmas Dioramas:
I have made a big move this "off" season. (Drum roll) I've up and hired myself a professional coach! I met with him for the first time yesterday. He's a level 2 coach from Australia and a very nice guy. Stay tuned. It's gonna be an interesting 2012!
