I love Thanksgiving and everything about the holiday season - including snow.
Snow? Who said that?
We had a little surprise today.
It. Is. Snowing.
On Thanksgiving Eve.
I don't think it is supposed to snow on Thanksgiving Eve, people. Not in my land anyway.
It may be a bit chilly this time of year but snow? No way.
It is happening right now.
Thanksgiving is all about "giving thanks" but "eating" is right up there at the top of the list.
Thanksgiving is one of my friends favorite holiday. She loves to cook so she is all about the 24 pound stuffed turkey and the loads of sides that goes with it. She buys her food weeks in advance so she can get exactly what she wants for the big day.
Me? I went to the store just yesterday - it is dealing with "the real food thing," you know. Not my greatest skill. I am all about the pies. And turkey sandwiches.
I am thankful for the most wonderful family that I could ever ask for and some truly amazing friends.
And…my furry boyz. Could not live without them.
We had a scare with The Poodle's bad leg on Sunday. He has a bad case of arthritis in his front leg, which we have been wrestling with for the past year.
Sunday, He could barely walk. My heart was breaking just watching him trying to get around.
I am very thankful that today, he is back to his normal "limping" self.
Sometimes you don't know how good it is - until it gets worse.
Know what I mean?
Sorta like when you gain a ton of weight and you used to think being just a little bit overweight was so baaaaaad. Then you say something like, "I would be happy to be back to my old overweight weight right now."
See how it works?
So we are extremely happy The Poodle is back to his old limp and not the excruciating limp of Sunday.
I do something a little silly sometimes. It is an awesome "wake-up call game" I play by myself. I have never told anyone about this until the other day.
I like to sleep in total darkness but the hubster has to leave the microwave light on the kitchen. (He would be considered a darkness weenie). There is a tiny bit of light but not very much. We have a skylight in the bathroom and if the moon is bright then even the moonlight is way too much for me so I keep the bathroom door closed at night.
Although, it is not that difficult to maneuver around my own house in the dark, I begin to think what if I was in certain situations and WOW, what a "wake up call" ...all happenin' in the middle of the night as the hubster and the boyz snooze on.
So yeah, I may have bad pain every day but I also get to see with my own eyes and walk with my own legs, and for that, I am extremely thankful.
What are you most thankful for this year?
Happy White Thanksgiving!
I think I may have a maple bacon cupcake for dinner. It is Thanksgiving Eve, it's allowed today - as I enjoy the beautiful snow.
