November in Bloom

We thought we were done with hurricane season. Nope. Hurricane Nicole passed right over us. I haven’t experienced the calm of the eye since I was a kid. Other than that, just another big yard cleanup and a few fruit trees that needed to be staked up. First guava jam from our tree. Flamingo feather.Fort Pierce peacocks.Beautyberry.Aster. Some nice walks along the Hillsborough River. It’s so lush right now. Also still so humid and buggy, but worth it for all this beauty. Lots of snakes on that trail. 
Mullet and stingray off the dock. I had a lovely Thanksgiving with family and friends and so much delicious food. My brother fried a turkey perfectly and didn’t burn the house down. Courtney set the table with produce from Nelson’s Family Farms in Ft. Pierce. Everything was perfect except Toby had to work. Somehow I got mostly appetizer photos. Lots of Uno and my new favorite, Rummikub.

I hope you all had a great one, too. December, here we go…

    Beautiful pics and a nice looking Thanksgiving meal! Justin also fried a turkey this year for the first time for our Thanksgiving, and he too managed not to combust the surroundings. I’m sure he had all the correct fire equipment nearby just in case! Glad we all survived Nicole with mainly just yard clean up!

      We probably should have consulted Justin on the fire equipment! I stayed away from that operation, but I will say it was nice to have the oven freed up for all the sides, and it seems to make a very good turkey.
      You all have your hands full over there! Can’t wait to see your house lifted!

    Mm, those appetizers look delicious! I miss the tray my grandmother used to set out.
