Is this true for you - it is true for ME!



Relax today while you are running around getting things ready for Thanksgiving.  Don't forget to have some fun.  That is what it's about.

Thought for the day:

 “Promise me you will not spend so much time treading water and trying to keep your head above the waves, that you forget, truly forget....how much you have always loved to swim.”

Oh yeah! It's true. Trudy doesn't leave my side when I'm in the kitchen or we are at the table. She is waiting for that one little bite that is saved just for her. Great quote about swimming.

LOL, how sweet it is~~~just so no one is watching as I reach for that second piece of pumpkin pie.

To answer your ? the guys do most of the processing but I do know how to feather and truss a chicken. And I do most all the cooking and Bill helps except for the grill~~~when the whole family pitches in.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Sandi

Hi Sandie. Love that thought for the day, and that dog is just SO cute! I wish we had Thanksgiving over here in England - it is such a good idea. Nevertheless, I am truly thankful for all my blessings each and every day. Happy Thanksgiving to you my friend, and all your family.

Our chow hound dog, Adi, died September 17, Adi was a very good dog (link).

Today we had to put Amber, Karen's cat, out of her misery. Now all we have left is Katrin, our toy poodle.

Katrin's former owner was a French lady, born in France. Katrin is a French dog born in an Oklahoma puppy mill.

But she is trained up to be French. French dogs don't eyeball every bite you take. The French take their dogs to restaurants and the dogs just sit under the table waiting for the meal to be finished.

Debbie said...

HAHAHA! Perfect. As I recall, babies were like that too. Nothing could wake my girls up from a nap faster then some odd telepathic message that Mom is having a little snack time.

In case I don't get back here, HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

Hi Sandie, dear friend,
Today's image is so cute, I agree.
It sounds like a lot of fun you are going to have on Thanksgiving.
I wish Happy Thanksgiving to you, your dear family and loved ones!
Have a blessed time with those you love, and enjoy doing your best!
I try to take it easy, because I am going through health issues.
I hope life improves next year for me, in 2013. Happy Holidays!
Yes! Doctor Paul works every single day, Monday through Friday, including Holidays like Christmas. The Emergency Room is open all year round for all patients.
God may bless you all, Sandie!
Warm Hugs & All the Best,
