December 1, 2008

We are back home after enjoying the warmth and love of our first Thanksgiving ever spent in Kansas City, Missouri. Daughter Jessica hosted her first small gathering of family in her precious home located in some marvelous area of Kansas City - don't ask me where, but it's close to "The Plaza." We had a marvelous time just being together and doing simple things together, talking over morning coffee and evening wine. We walked the dogs (Baylee went, too), ate too much, drove too much, laughed tons, drank too much, walked a lot, and simply enjoyed being together. Thanksgiving evening found us smack dab in the middle of The Plaza to watch the Christmas lights being turned on. David Cook was said to be there, but we never spotted him.

Sunday morning dawned with snow on the ground but good road conditions. The scenery was beautiful, ethereal. However, eleven hours in the car with a whining dog made me want to kiss the ground when we finally pulled into the driveway last night. This morning on the lake low, dark clouds and grey waters were the backdrop for our first Bald Eagle sighting. Bob saw him first flying east, and I caught him heading west back to the nest. Hugging the shoreline, treetop height, this fellow was looking for a tasty meal.

Logging on this morning I see I've been tagged by Brett at 365 to 42! Apparently, I'm required to post six random things about me. Egad, and I'm late about it as well, so I'd best get cracking. Like I need to sit more, but here we go:

The Rules:
1) Link to the person who tagged you.
2) Post the rules on your blog (copy & paste 1-6)
3) Write 6 random things about yourself.
4) Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them.
5) Let each person know they have been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6) Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

So, oky doky. Six random things about me, eh. I'll try to make this interesting.

A) I hate driving with shoes on.
B) I'm nearly hypnotized by the feel of huge amounts of dried beans or smooth pebbles in my hands.
C) I have every Beatles LP and 45, including imports.
D) My dream car is a 1960's Jaguar XKE
E) Once, I made an arrowhead.
F) A favorite activity is driving to nowhere, getting lost and exploring - I crave small, unmapped roads. (of course, with my camera)

I don't think these are very interesting, but there ya go. Obviously, I'm sort of a simple sort. (I also love maps, Brett, and have my Chatty Cathy doll!)

Oh, shoot....forgot to get all my peeps that I'm tagging...I'll be right back. Okay, I'm choosing some new friends from some new blogs that I've been lurking within, occasionally commenting on.

I love these blogs and hope you all check 'em out. That's it for me - gotta go do laundry.

Ah, shoot...I forgot Rule #1 which was to link to Brett! goes: Brett at 365 to 42:

Apparently, my brain may be too old for such as this!!! LOL! Enjoy my randomness, if possible.

That bit about the eagle was supurb, like an adult fairytale. It's the kind of place I love to be, in my mind. Thank you for it.

Sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. And how lucky you are to be able to see Bald Eagles from your home!

Okay, I'll do the six random things. But I'll leave it up for grabs...a lot of bloggers don't like to be tagged, so I won't do that part.
