This will be one component of our Thanksgiving feast this evening.

A Man About Town

My God! I was allowed to leave the house today! I went to the credit union to deposit some checks, and then txrad wanted to stop at the nearby Central Market to pick up a bag of chicken-flavored vegetarian broth powder -- a whopping $1.73 purchase.

I knew from surveying the parking lot that Central Market was going to be crazy, so I remained in the car.

Then we stopped at the Hooch Emporium for some.... well, hooch! It was quite busy as well. I was honestly quite relieved to get home.

Travertine Medallion

This is the medallion we have selected to be incorporated into our flooring in the den most likely. I like that it is simple and rustic, not like some of the more formal ones.

Pizza Foundation

txrad spreads cornmeal on our pizza stone prior to the laying on of dough.

The sauteing toppings: veggie sausage, onions, jalapeño, garlic, a large portobello mushroom, and sometimes red bell pepper when we have it.

Fresh from the Oven

Mmmmmmm. Warm blueberry muffins. What a way to start a Sunday morning.

It Looks Witchy

It's just two plant stands stacked atop one another.

Soul Food Night

The cooktop and Scanpans get a serious workout during the preparation of macaroni & cheese, beans, and greens. "Hot Surface" is right. And I have trained txrad quite well (North Dakota native) to handle the soul food preparation while I do other important things.

This explains a lot tonight.

Travertine Array

I don't know why I'm so infatuated with stone.

Hibiscus After Dark

I love the promos for Palladia, the new MTV HD music channel. I can't help but imagine being mesmerized by those while smoking some pot, as if I had that luxury!

One Egg. Two Yolks.

A quirk of nature. Anyone else ever see this happen?

The Big O(possum)

Cat food sure lures 'em in!

A Travertine Travesty

Oops. The contractor told me to be careful. This one was fragile. txrad accidentally stepped on it when I had a corner of it sitting on a carpet strip. Uneven surface... you know the drill.

So what's it gonna be? A $5 fine? A death sentence?

Salvia at Night

After a bit of rain a few days ago, the salvia has really been putting on a dazzling show.

This is what a woven bedspread looks like after a few years of a cat sleeping on it.
