Just as we planned, it was a quiet Thanksgiving for us. By late morning we had both spoken to all of our siblings and other family members. For breakfast we enjoyed a holiday tradition of my homemade cinnamon rolls that are baked in a well seasoned cast-iron-frying pan (or skillet) that once belonged to my grandparents. (recipe can be found here)

The coldest day since last winter with temperatures that didn't get above freezing all day. The hummingbird feeder left out for any stragglers, was frozen almost solid.

Annie's appetite has been on the decline for more than a week, and she didn't eat at all on Thursday or Friday morning. I tried to remedy that by tempting her with the smelliest of foods, but she wanted none of it. Annie also hasn't wanted to go for walks, and has been sleeping for hours in the same place. Trips outside have been very brief. The middle of the night I've been awakened by her incessant drinking, and constant barking at what appears to be nothing. When she's not doing either of those, I've been awake just to check on her (and Wendy).

And maybe the chance to roll in the leaves too.

I received two more texts from Lydia telling me that things had gone much better today with Todd being on a leash and she'd gotten him back inside with no problem. Score another point for Lydia.
I just knew there was nothing to worry about.

It was not the best first day for Lydia, as our new dog-walker. Just as I was leaving for lunch, I got a phone call from her telling me that Sunny had gone into one of the crates and was growling at her. I told her to just leave him alone and try to avoid eye contact with him, and that he would be fine. Sunny met Lydia like they were old friends on Friday and was really relaxed around her. However, history is showing that he gets nervous and unsure about someone he doesn't know that well, (or at all) when either Carl or I aren't around. We both agreed it will just take him some time.
