How was your Thanksgiving? Did you travel anywhere or did you stay home? I stayed at home, well first I went and got a latte and took Chhaya out for a walk, it was a bit frosty out today. I was thankful that a coffee cart was open today and a barista was working so I could get my daily addiction - a latte. Chhaya was thankful too because the barista gave her a treat.

We ate, I had some mashed potatoes with gravy (I looooove mashed potatoes and yes, I made them from scratch, who doesn't?) and green beans and Chhaya had turkey and ate so much that she fell asleep early, snoring like a piggy. No turkey for me. I'm thankful that I have food to eat.

We have a wood stove now, the smoke coming out of the chimney looked pretty against the sky. I am thankful that I have a comfortable and warm house to live in.

I was going to make some apple pies today (I looooove apple pie) and got apples at Safeway after work early this morning.....but then I realized I didn't have enough butter. So the apple pies will be made another day. Good that I had some cheesecake. And tea. And some new magazines to read. And my baby Chhaya. I am so very thankful for my life.

I'm thankful for a lot and I think about that often.....not only on Thanksgiving. Right now I'm watching Cause For Paws and crying a bit. I wish I could adopt all the pets in need, I hope that those featured on tonight's show will find a good forever home. I have a soft spot for pitbulls though. But it hurt inside when I saw those little Beagles set their paws on grass for the first time ever, how SAD!
And last but not least, I am thankful for YOU.....that you are reading my blog. Even if I don't know you, you know me a bit. Thank You and take care! Kissie pic from last night, my selfie machine is still broken therefore the pic looks like this......XOXO

Aw...sweet CHHAYA I love that look on her face with the tilted head! I worked on Thanksgiving but I am use to that in the medical field. I met up with friends at a local bar where they serve great food. Jax is enjoying his treats you sent. They came at a great time, he had to have a broken tooth pulled. They are softer than his usual treats :-) thank you again.

Tatiana on :

Food with friends at Thanksgiving sounds like the perfect way to spend it....
Jax had to pull a tooth? No way! Poor baby! Chhaya had two pulled a few months ago.....I was really worried but it turned out good.

Annette on :

I was worried too when they put him under to pull the tooth...and they cleaned them. He was kinda not himself for a few days but now he is fine. Plus he has nice clean teeth....they did before and after pics
:-) we love our dogs!

Tatiana on :

Oh yes we love them!
