Post Thanksgiving, we feel like this cat...

By the way, this is not Brisbane, LOL, it's just random Internet cat that summarized how we feel, ha!

With a four day weekend, we had to maximize our time off.  Thursday was eating day of course.  
Friday was off to the farm, after oversleeping a bit, to work in the barn and do some stuff in the house.  Saturday was more of the same but back into town a bit earlier so we could relax.  

Garlic is growing nicely...

The cabbage which was planted in three plantings each a week apart, is growing small, medium and large, just like we wanted.  So far so good...

Collards have finally all popped upright and are getting taller.  We might be inundated with collard greens soon.  Will be looking for some recipes!

Sunday was our day of rest before back to work today.  And eating.  The last of the leftovers. 

Don't forget, today is CyberMonday.  
It's a great day for online deals. 

We did a great deal of our shopping at (affiliate link) but I think most of the rest of it has been done online as well. I'd link to some of the other sites we shopped at but of course, that would give away the gift giving, ha. 

Happy shopping!

Thank you for being our blog family of friends, we appreciate you all more than you could know!


  1. Google “Alton Brown collard greens.” He has a recipe that uses smoked turkey legs but I used smoked turkey necks, cheaper and because that’s what I had on hand. Anyway, they are darn good!

  2. late happy thanksgiving! i have a great collards recipe on my blog if it sounds like something you might want to try!

  3. We used to have a cat named Milhous who sat on the couch like that. He was an excellent cat.
