Another yard work day here on Black Friday--sure beats fighting the crowds at the stores! We got the front yard and east side-yard cleaned up and ready for winter---I forgot to take pictures though. It took me a little bit to get going since I have been sick this week, but I finally did. I took down the fern on the front porch, and hubby and I noticed that this evening some purple finches were hanging around looking for it. I think they have been roosting in it at night. It's probably some of the finches that hatched in the nest that was in the fern this spring. I took their home down---*sniff-sniff*.
While we were working in the yard we smoked the turkey that was thawed in the refrigerator. I cut it in half so it wouldn't take as long to smoke. It took 10 hours. It was a very nice day outside--beautiful weather with temps in the 60's. Here is one half of the turkey.
I got six bags of meat---that will make six meals for us. I am freezing four of the bags.
A very good day.
The rain is suppose to start tonight; it will be cooling off, and snow flurries are in the forecast for tomorrow night and Sunday.
