Ah Thanksgiving, a day to enjoy family and food. D and I did our own Turkey trot around the neighborhood. The good news is that we came in first, the bad news is we came in last. And our prize? We got to cook and extra special meal together. Well that and the six cents I found in the road while trotting.
I am I the only one that still gets excited when money is found in the road? To me it is totally free money, it does not matter if it is a penny or a quarter. But today I found a nickel and a penny, Wahoo!
Gus passed the turkey smelling test but his Mom was strong and did not submit to his pleas for food that we all know would upset his stomach. Boo strong Mom. I am sure his belly is happier than he is but so be it.
It was close to this time last year that he started getting so sick so I am overjoyed that he is still with us and almost as sassy as ever. I truly believed that he would not be with us much longer this spring and it is amazing what medicine can do.
So this year I am thankful for everything that I still have, a loving husband that is learning to cook, two cats to snuggle with, a warm and comfortable home, our families, good friends, a good job, dependable vehicles and an abundance of yarn to play with.
Life is good and I am happy to be able to share it with ya'll too.
