Although different from most of our Thanksgiving celebrations, yesterday was a lovely day.
We opted for cooking just a small turkey and I made all of our favorite Thanksgiving fixings. One whole pumpkin pie might be a lot for two of us, but we will do our darnedest to make sure every last bite is eaten!
We had a lovely quiet day. We talked of things for which we are thankful. The animals all got extra treats... carrots for most. Even the dogs had a small special treat of plain turkey meat.
We spent a little time with our family via the internet and met our little Carolina Wren for the first time. She slept through the entire visit with her face towards us, so we were treated to a varied repertoire of facial expressions as she peacefully dreamed. Mom and Dad and baby are all doing well adjusting to this new life.
Between internet visits with family, we spent an hour riding our bikes. It felt good to get outside for some fresh air and exercise.
Moonie continues to do quite well. He greets me at the stall door three times daily- ready to get his eye ointment. (translated... ready to get his peppermint treats.)
I was glad to hear that some enjoyed the book chapter that I included in yesterday's blog. Yes, it was Chapter 2. A few asked about Chapter 1 - so, here you go....
If everything works as it should, you should be able to access Chapter 1 HERE.[link]
Thanksgiving pre-empted this week's food for thought. I assume we have all had enough food...so we'll save our thoughts for next week.
Have a wonderful weekend. I'll be busily starting the Christmas decorating.
