A Quiet Thanksgiving — pat morss

Still activity around us, as family was reassigned to Zoom.

It was skeletons here at Halloween
A live Christmas tree was planted in the same spot this weekend
Other trees have their own natural ornaments
Your snow stakes are confusing me
Mallards on Niles Pond
This may be why we are called ducks
An outdoor light fixture needed a cleaning
Inside, a microclimate was creating a miniature garden
Rolling on home

Nina Goodick Dogtown Common Babson Bowl Donated As One Of Next Week’s Podcast Sharing Prize

Dear Joe: attached are a few photos of the Dogtown Common Babson Bowls I have been making in my studio on sale now for this Holiday Season. They are wheel thrown , and then the Roger Babson messages are carved into them, bisque fired, Glazed and then They are all high fired by my friend and fellow potter Marty Morgan in her gas kiln. Phew! Quite a process.
I love that Roger Babson’s messages from over 100 years ago are relevant today in this time, in this moment.
I’m donating one of these bowls for your live podcast raffles next week.

Happy Holidays! Nina

@WeberGrills Family Q 300 Reverse Sear Chairman Reserve Ribeye

Northeast BBQ

@WeberGrills Family Q 300 Reverse Sear Chairman Reserve Ribeye. Love the two burner Q for reverse searing. Easy peasy. I think between the thick grates for an excellent maillard reaction and the separate burners the Family Q makes for a great reverse searing machine! Check out my blog if you want www.northeastbbq.com for more

Hawk Posing at Salisbury Beach

I came across this handsome hawk (Norther Harrier, I believe) at Salisbury Beach State Reservation. Access to this reservation is free after Oct 31, so we have begun to return there on a semi regular basis to see what’s new. And found this guy sitting nicely posed until he took off for me.
