{48}: trimming and retrimming the tree

“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week in 2013.”

On the RangeNovember 26 – December 2, 2013

{On the Range} is my weekly series where I discuss what we’re doing, reading, and eating. It’s a little bit 52 project and other photo projects, and a little bit {Did you Read?} and {In the Ranger Kitchen}

My week…

  • Thanksgiving was a great break! I am still stuffed.
  • We got a tree on Saturday and trimmed it right away (see pic above), and now it appears it was already on its way out of this world, so we’ll be detrimming its ugly brown needle-raining self this afternoon to take back to the garden center. I can only imagine that my spell check doesn’t consider “detrimming” a word because this is not how nature is supposed to work–or, not yet anyway. But lo, here we are.


  • It’s possible none of you will get this Buzzfeed (it’s also possible I’m a twat for writing that), but here it is anyway for our two American expat friends in England.


  • Last year I wrote a post about our favorite holiday meals (with a mashed squash recipe), and that pretty much sums up our meal experience again this year, except we also had bourbon pumpkin cheesecake. This is a dessert that should make its way into your annual repertoire. SO good.
  • Here’s my Pinterest page of holiday meal ideas too, just for fun.
