Gnome Home

Mr. Gnome with Golden Bunny
While spending time with family on Christmas Day, we had a surprise visit from Mr. Gnome. He was delivering a special Christmas bunny to show his appreciation for being allowed to live in one of the backyard trees. {Mr. Gnome's home}

Our Mountain

An Add-On Poem by Kit & Johnnny

Our Mountain

Good neighbors are worth a lot
Count your blessings for what you got
All on a ship together we ride
North to forever, I'm on your side
Strolling together in any direction
Our hands reach each other for protection
Maintain our mountain to keep it safe
Like Vikings with swords, our hero Leif
He married his queen, mother of five
Their love kept the family more than alive
Every weekend was spent in a state park
The sun through the leaves ignited a spark
Fireside chatting in the moonlight til two
What won't we do? What will we do?

Pork Wellington

A resting pork wellington
Kit tried a pork wellington tonight. It's resting now. It's a pork tenderloin stuffed with semi-pulverized dried apple rings, then wrapped in prosciutto bacon, and then rolled up in a mustard-brushed puff pastry. Brush the outside with egg & cook @ 400 for about 40 minutes. Enjoy!

Green Tea Party

Sitting neath a big green tree
Sipping cup of hot green tea
Warm cool tracks to north daylight
Nicely resolve into neutral night

Three darts in your hand
Thrown at six-sided snow flake
Quick before it melts
