The sunshine is piling up in huge drifts here in North Texas, and the problem with this is that we never really acclimate to the season; when it drops to freezing for a stretch of days it's a jolt to the nervous system.

I've entered leftovers season to join the rest of the apres-Thanksgiving US; so far I haven't used much, I made a batch of turkey flautas (shredded, seasoned, and rolled up in corn tortillas and fried; they're reheated in the toaster oven and served with guacamole, lebne, and finely-chopped iceberg lettuce.) Soup looms.

It will be eBay full-tilt this week and a holiday party on Friday evening, as a way to balance out the alone-time at home. The little tiller given me by the neighbor is ready to pick up after a rebuilt carburetor repair, and just in time to start a bed for potatoes (they get planted around January 1 here.) My neighborhood's bulky waste pickup is next week and I have some old fence panels and stuff I intend to pull up that had edged the garden to put at the curb. The back yard leaves need mulching, so the piled up sunshine will come in handy to dry them out for the mower after a wet week.

The last few weeks have been about putting things back into service that are here instead of buying new. It's a good habit to get into. I've cleared out some space in the craft room around my sewing table and mending will come under the "put back in service" goal.
