Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts

Happy Thanksgiving!


Not as much of the family could make it as last year, but we’ve had a nice day with warmer than usual temperatures for November, so we enjoyed getting outside while it lasts. It’s supposed to get colder overnight.

While the turkey was in the oven, Mary groomed her dogs – I couldn’t believe how well Stella (aka The Great White) just stood to be trimmed.

First Toby & Stella helped Mary load the dishwasher,

then they moved over to the island to help me break down the rest of the turkey, where naturally there were a few small bits of fallout.

Ever hopeful …

After letting dinner settle for a little while, we topped it off with pie.

Chocolate Kahlua Pecan Pie.

Hope your day was good too!

ETA: The pie completely disappeared – it was yummy 😛

  1. That pie looks uncommonly delicious!

  2. Such good helpers. I know that spot in the kitchen and I imagine it was a tad more crowded than your picture shows;-P It looks like your day was great. And, Stella rocks the grooming world. Grover usually walks away while I’m working away on him. That might have been a training flaw. Pie looks fab!!!!

  3. We sat outside here too and waited for things to get done. Glad your day was yummy!
