Tis The Season – Merry Christmas


Christmas Tumbleweed Or Maybe A Christmas Cactus?

xmas card How Odd, It’s only 12 days before the Official start of Winter. In southwest Oklahoma it is dry, lots of sun shine and the temperature is a pleasant 62 degrees.
The northwest U.S. is being pounded by rain storms. Things are getting water logged even by Washington standards. The northeast is being hammered by yet another cold snow and freezing rain storm.

Grinning… It’s official now. Congress said California in suffering a drought. Speaker John Boehner, said the House has just passed an emergency California drought relief bill.
I guess Boehner’s aid’s and staff failed to tell the senator that most it not all of the southwest and western states are suffering Severe, Extreme or Exceptional Drought Conditions.

🙂 With all these warm day’s and night’s I feel like I should be in my garden plot planting early spring crops like cabbage, Brussels sprouts and such.
I will take advantage of the warm, low wind days and plow my garden plot, tilling in a bit more composted hay and cow/horse/donkey dung. I am amazed that it’s the second week of December and at the 4 inch depth my soil temperature is measuring 59 to 60 degrees.

Michelle L. was good to her old daddy. Yesterday she brought me 2 – 60 ounce (almost 1/2 gallon jars) of pickled Okra. They are some brand I never heard of, from Mexico, but the Okra taste really good. I buy a lot of pickled hot peppers from Mexico. You know the ones I’m talking about, the peppers pickled, packed in tin cans, with onions and carrots. I have never been disappointed with their flavor or quality.

Michelle L. and clan, have erected their ‘huge’ 10 or 12 foot tall plastic Christmas tree. It’s been decorated and lights blinking.
As for me and de-dogs, we will find and paint sliver, a small tumble weed to use as out Xmas tree. Don’t laugh, sometime we must make do with what we have! Hehehe, no money spent on buying a tree, Grin … one tree saved from the chainsaw and I won’t have a tree disposal problem either.
Dogs are getting hard rubbed chew toys and I think Santa will bring me a big pecan pie this year.
