Thanksgiving Turkey

Well, I do believe the right season has found its way back into being.  It is now cold.  Just like it's supposed to be this time of year.  

You complain it's too hot for walks in the summer.  Now what's your excuse?

Now, I want to make this perfectly clear ~ I am not complaining that we have not had snow or cold, bitter, wintry winds this year.    I'm just a little confused, that's all.  

You think you're confused!  What about the dog?  I mean...  You walk me, then you don't, then you do, then you don't.. it's too hot too cold too winter too summer... c'mon now.  Make up your mind woman.

Today I have my Thanksgiving turkey in the oven, thanks to our last minute decision to go out to eat on Thanksgiving day.  So I guess it will be a turkey kinda week here at our place.

Hope you plan on sharing

So tell me now, how have you been entertaining yourself through these bleak, dark, short days of *ahem* winter?  Gary and I have been binge watching a couple of series on Netflix.  

Begging for attention.  Irritating the heck out of you and dad with my strange behavior of wanting to go out and sit on the cold wet ground and repeating such behavior umpteen times throughout the day. Licking my paws.  Getting yelled at.  Playing with new toys.  Binge eating and dragging my dry food throughout the house so I can give you something to do.

Usually my office is slow for January and February.  Not so this year.  I have been very busy!  Which is good...  it does help pay the bills...  

And buy treats.  Just saying'


I am in the beginning stages of planning a family vacation to Disney World (hopefully) early 2018.  We will likely skip the beach this year.  Haven't totally decided that yet either.   Within the next couple of months I should have a feel for what the year will be looking like vacation-wise.  Of course  it all can change, it is in God's hands really.  

And speaking of God, spell it backwards and it spells Dog.  Dog says no vacations unless dog goes too.

Gracie is always well taken care of when we go away but even so...  I seriously hate leaving her...  especially now that she is older.  Who ever thought that a dog could break a heart with just one look?   

You have one cold heart I'm tellin' ya.

So what's new here?  We got pictures taken for our church directory.  Below, there we are with our little church buddies.  I love that the grands go to church with us.   

Nobody asked if the dog wanted to go.  And.  I heard dogs were invited to be in the photo's.  I've looked real hard.  I don't see a dog on that picture.  Maybe I should look again..  Must be missin' something there...

And so.  As I patiently await that calendar to tell me it is spring, I pull out my flip-flops and wear them for a couple of days... then put them back away and get out my boots... then the flips... then the boots... then the...  


You get the picture.  It's been a crazy winter here.  I should have known when I purchased my beautiful new Uggs at the start of the winter that there would be no snow this year.

You are welcome.

Unless you need me to take you for a walk, please do not disturb.


  1. The church pictures are awesome! I saw them on Facebook too. And look at little Summer, she looks so excited!! You are all so beautiful, and the pictures turned out wonderfully. So exciting about Disney world!! Poor Gracie, she seems not very happy with the weather. I say extra treats, and plenty of them, plus lots of cookie crumbs.

  2. Such a cute entry back and forth between you and Gracie :) Great picture of you all for the church directory :) The kids are old enough to enjoy a Disney World adventure next year if you pursue it; will be tons of fun!


  3. Great to have that turkey on a whatever day and it's cool enough to have the oven on. Church family picture is one of the best I've seen of anyone.
    I hope Gracie gets lot of turkey.

  4. Lovely photo!

    We had a "tease" of spring, but cold weather (very cold nights!) are back for a bit. But we are up north, and know, that we do get these "teases", this time of year.

    Thankfully, we don't have any fruit trees or etc., to bloom too early. -sigh- That must be awful.

    I'm sure the others, where you live, are happy that your new Uggs, saved you all, from a deep-in-snow winter!!! :-)

  5. Ohhh yes! Forgot about the Turkey!

    It is simple wisdom, to have "another" Thanksgiving turkey, when we miss the original one!!! Yes it is! :-)

  6. The weather is perfect for Thanksgiving turkey. Wonderful picture of the family. GRACIE i loved your commentary.
