Five Question Friday

1. Is there a special dish you prepare that you are famous for?
My pecan pie is pretty good, so maybe that.

2. Are you (did you) go Black Friday shopping ?
Nope. The stress is not worth the deals.

3. What are your strangest holiday traditions?
Hmm. Since I'm a pagan, I go camping for Yule. So much fun with the drumming and bonfires. Can't wait for it, actually.

4. Pecan or pumpkin pie? (She actually asked "Apple or pumpkin?" I just T-giving'ed it!)
Pecan! With ice cream.

5. When will you put up your Christmas tree?
I guess it depends on when we have time to buy one. If I had my way, I'd have it up tomorrow.

Alphabet Thursday

This week's letter: W
W for...Water, Topkapi-style

No simple bowls for my beauty Topkapi. No, like the python Queen she is, she requires a glass. I do this every day because she has come to expect it. I have one very spoiled snake.

ABC Wednesday Challenge

This week's letter: J

J for...Jeff the Golden Eagle
My sister works with birds of prey, and one of the birds she has made a bond with is Jeff. He can be moody, as with all animals, but is usually pretty good-natured.

Here he is getting some sun.
