The better part of the day was spent cleaning up yesterday's party mess. Lots of dishes to wash up and things to put away.
Next on the list was butchering the Christmas turkey. He weighed in at 20 lbs. A little smaller than Thanksgiving but a big bird all the same.
While plucking I happened to look up and see the ditch beside the shed was on fire. Seems hubby dumped yesterday's ashes too close to some leaves and they caught up. Turkey forgotten we scurried to get water in that direction as it was closing in on a very large leaf pile. I was carrying buckets while he went to get the pressure washer which, thankfully, was full of water. Fire put out, we got back to the task at hand and finished the bird. Never a dull moment around here!
