thanksgiving feast (the tofurky is hiding in the back...)

we had so many things to be thankful for this thanksgiving, that it could take all day to record them all. but the highlights include: quality time with our family and friends (this includes our humanimals, bob and del), our health, our art, my healing leg!!!, the green movement and the fact that we are - despite many efforts to undermine our personal liberties and privacy - still free.

thanksgiving preparations...

exhibit a) whole cranberry sauce with orange zest and nutmeg
exhibit b) assorted vegetables marinating in veggie broth in anticipation of maƱana's Tofurky. needless to say, jake's thrilled about the idea of a "roast" on a traditionally carnivorous holiday. he is, after all, a veterinarian.

postcript: raison une - she has no problem with painting her nails in public. at the park. despite the fact that the mothers sitting next to us thought there might be some kind of toxic fume leaking from the ground. we clarified that it was just OPI.

postscript: the funny thing about this particular day is that meg and i descended upon a music festival in southpark that we thought would be a fun change of pace - and lo and behold, many a family with small children was present. there was a whole lotta funky white multi-generational groovin' happening on the lawn in front of the stage while the very loaded singer of one local blues band belted out "i just wanna make looooooove to youuuuuuuuu..." we would have been hard pressed to find a stranger scene. the evening proved even more serendipidous as we attended south bark's (home of the canine blueberry facial) double feature movie night (Lost Boys and Licensed to Drive) where we even enjoyed complimentary boar's head hot dogs. south park is nothing short of amazing.

sunrise by fire

well, the blood-red sun wasn't so bloody after all. and for anyone who knows me well, it's pretty safe to say that i'm not a morning person. but i was so inspired by the spector of the burgundy orb that rose over the hillside just two days ago (that i only managed to see because i happened to wake up for 30 seconds, looked at, marveled at it for all of 3 seconds and then went promptly back to sleep) that i decided to try to capture it for everyone's viewing pleasure. this, sadly, was the best i could do on tuesday morning at 6:45am (when the sun rose a few moments later, it looked like any other sunrise), but the lack of redness does mean that the air quality is getting slightly better, though everyone is still warned to stay indoors through today and possibly tomorrow. the fires raging in Lake Arrowhead to the east of us are still largely uncontained as they devour the acre upon acre of dead pine growth that did not get thinned enough over the past few years to prevent this tragedy in that community. many of our friends in san diego have been evacuated from their homes, but to date, no one has had any bad news - and we hope that remains the case.

seemed appropriate...

because i failed to document the fires that rage in all directions (literally) from my home, this oldie but goodie seemed a natural fit. the skies in my neighborhood look not unlike this new delhi sunset (courtesy of the city's dense pollution).

tomorrow, i'll have a picture of the blood red sun rising over the great silver lake. promise.
