Happy day after
Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it’s all about getting together and reconnecting with the people we care about and remembering what we have to be thankful for - And it is of course a day, and a day after where you have an excuse to overeat.

We had a really nice dinner at home. I'll admit that this year, the table was not going to make the cover of a decorating magazine. Don't get me wrong, I really do love a beautifully set table, especially for a holiday or special occasion. Who doesn't?
|~This was NOT our table because I am NO Martha Stewart....~|
But I have to say that it's totally lost on my husband and brother. So because of that, I didn't feel the pressure to morph into Martha Stewart for the day. It's never going to happen today or any day for that matter, and it's okay!
Max, (below) cares nothing about Martha Stewart. After dinner and dessert he came to the table hoping there may be something left for him.
Another hopeful after dinner was Sunny. I don't write much about Sunny, and I should. He is slowing down a bit and the cold days are hard for him because of his arthritis. He avoids the spotlight and especially a camera whenever he can. But he doesn't realize that I'm taking his picture with my phone, so Sunny is staying around when he sees it in front of him.
But all the dogs did get a little bit of turkey added to their evening meal, the ultimate treat for them. Todd, checking out the refrigerator this morning, is hoping for the same thing this morning. Again,m he and the others were not disappointed.
Now with one holiday behind us, it's onto the next one. Our foster girl Nina is now available for adoption via Lab Rescue. So she's also hopeful and waiting and ready to find her forever home.
Hello, I am glad you had a Happy Thanksgiving. It is a good holiday and reason to eat too much. The dogs all look adorable. I am sure they enjoyed the turkey treat. Have a happy Friday and a great weekend.ReplyDelete
Sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving....surrounded by dogs...the very best Thanksgiving. Enjoy the weekend, too.ReplyDelete
Sunny, that is a wonderful smile, and Nina, with a red bow behind you, you will I am sure soon have a loving new family.Happy Thanksgiving to you all.ReplyDelete
Happy Thanksgiving. It's one of my favorite holidays too... no gifts, just friends, family and food! Sunny is looking fantastic. I hope that Nina finds a furever home soon!ReplyDelete
The food is WAY more important than how the table looks! I also love Thanksgiving and refuse to put up anything related to Christmas until Thanksgiving Day is past.ReplyDelete
Happy Thanksgiving Kim to all of you! I love the photos of the dogs... and I also hope that Nina finds the forever home that is needed.ReplyDelete
I am sure there is still some snacks in that fridge!
This year someone else did the cooking which was a treat for me. The dogs were disappointed but they don't know there are two 23 lb turkeys in the freezer for cooking soon. They'll be eating turkey way into the new year.ReplyDelete
Glad you had a lovely Thanksgiving.ReplyDelete
Oh, I love the picture of Todd in front of the open fridge. It reminds me of my Retired Man.ReplyDelete
Thinking of your bevy of champions this day after Thanksgiving. Hoping the coming year will find loving homes for those that are able to re-home and health for those that stay on to warm your home.ReplyDelete
The local birds should occupy that house to keep an eye on you, keep you safe and rescue you.ReplyDelete
It sounds like you had a peaceful, relaxing holiday.ReplyDelete
Keeping some “yummy bits” for the furry onesReplyDelete
is all about Thanksgiving as well!
They love “their life” with you, hubs and brother . . .
Happy Thanksgiving Saturday . . .
We didn't have a big TG feast this time. Ghostwriter had to go to work at 3pm. But I did get a turkey cutlet and mashed potatoes in my dinner bowl. Yum!ReplyDelete
Sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Simple and full of love. Just my kind of holiday. :)ReplyDelete
I would rather have a seat at your table than Martha's kind any day! what a wonderful post. and the picture of Todd in front of all that largesse! he can't believe his eyes Mom! all those dishes say 'Todd!' LOL!!!ReplyDelete
blessings to each one of you at Golden Pines. XOXO
What a beautiful girl Nina is! I hope she is warming up to being in a loving environment. And, what a wonderful picture of Sunny. He has always had a special place in my heart. Sorry about the arthritis, but he looks very peaceful.What love can do is amazing.ReplyDelete
So glad you and your family had a nice day.
Glad to hear you had a good Thanksgiving, Kim. God bless.ReplyDelete
I so wish I lived closer to you, Kim. Hubby and I are looking for another furry family member to welcome in. But I'm afraid that northern Indiana and Virginia are miles & miles apart. :-( Kiss all those sweet furry heads for me! Lovingly, Andrea xoxoReplyDelete
Looks like a feast to me! So glad you had a nice day. And I hope Nina finds a good home, she's one beautiful girl.ReplyDelete
I think it wonderful the way Americans celebrate Thanksgiving. We have Australia Day in the heat of January so many celebrations are held at the beach or shady parks. Our celebrations (including Christmas) come at the wrong time so people have given up cooking hot meals (or most have anyway).ReplyDelete
Nina sure is a beautiful dog. I sure hope she gets a real good forever home.ReplyDelete
The table setting for Thanksgiving was beautiful. I hope you had a wonderful holiday.
