Well, I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday. We certainly did. Aside from lovely company, I was able to actually make an edible turkey. LOL! I brined it in a five gallon bucket of a mixture of seven quarts of water and one and a half cups of salt. Then, I cooked it at 250 degrees for about six hours. It could have cooked for about an hour less, but it worked. Yummy!
The day after Thanksgiving found my brother, my nephew, my doggy, and myself at Foundation Park for the setting of the moon and the rising of the sun.
I’m glad that we went to the park when we did. The next day was gray and rainy and cold.
But, later in the day, when it stopped raining, I popped Toby in the truck and we went to the Kokosing Gap Trail in town. I am so glad we did!
I was just walking along and suddenly noticed the clouds clearing and the sun coming out and it was low in the sky and I could see that I was about to be treated to a wonderful sunset. I clicked and clicked and danced and had some fun and poor Toby patiently waited. We would walk a few feet and I would see another composition among some new trees. What fun! I got a couple dozen shots, but I will just share a few of the best ones.
