Today I went and had a full body massage, an hour long one...it was lovely!

Nice firm massage with a fair bit of pressure applied...I like to feel my massages

I dont have them often but it is lovely every now and then to just unwind for an hour and be pampered

Well I just finished wrestling with a giant butternut squash!

I thought it would fit into a large saucepan but that didn't work so I dug out my stock pot.

That prompted a search for the cover in the depths of the pan cupboard.

The search triggered an avalanche of stainless steel and cast iron!

Talk about pandemonium!

So now I have decided to take the advice of a post I saw on the internet. The poster said to reduce kitchen clutter you should take all of the items out of your cupboards and put them into boxes. As you need an item take it from the box and return it to the kitchen. At the end of six months take any items remaining in the boxes to the Goodwill shop.

In my case if I don't use it by the first of the year I will probably never use it!

This morning I'm making pies--but I'm doing it at a local church that has a pie making group. The pies are sold to raise funds to support various programs at the church and in the community. After that, I'm making a quick trip to the farm to check on Rocky and his new girls, back home. I know what I'm going to do this evening! There's leftover pastry in the fridge from the appetizer I made for T'giving, turkey, gravy, peas, potatoes, and carrots, I know what I'm doing this evening when I get back from a quick trip to the farm. I probably will make another batch of pastry...turkey pot pies for the freezer. Thanks for the idea, RL!

I just noticed this. It turned out OK for you? Did you can it or freeze it?

Your post renders out two swell mental pictures. Thanks, AB!

For the turkey pot pies? I might make one large one and then do the rest with the pie maker. We'll see how much energy I have left when I get back from the farm (and how late it is). I have to be out of the house tomorrow by 7:10, so I can't keep my usual hours and still get up, shower, eat, and attend to the hens.

It's really good! I'm going to freeze it. I cut back on the sugar and "measured" by taste, but this one's a keeper! Thanks Alix!
