Happy Thanksgiving!
Hope this post finds you all well. Today is about gratitude and we have much to be grateful for!

I am grateful my sister is still here to see another Thanksgiving, even though I can't be with her. I am so grateful for my home in this beautiful place; for it's odd design that gives me lots of workspaces; for it's proximity to our creek which brings me and my girl so much joy! 

And I'm so grateful for the little Baconhead herself. You may remember this photo from last fall. This past winter, as my niece was getting married, I found a great deal on a 20 x 30 print. I bought one for the niece and one for me. I took out the ugly shop yard background and dropped in a pink one to match the color in Mabel's collar. 

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this print. I hangs on the living room wall, right over the spot Mabel gets her nightly cuddles. She will often sit back and admire herself!  You can see it from the back yard! It makes me happy and is one of my favorite possessions!

I'm also truly grateful to be in a place where I don't feel the need to hit the mall for more possessions! Especially on a family holiday! 

And I'm grateful for such wonderful friends... Ones in real life and online! 

Hope your Thanksgiving is wonderful!

You're not supposed to feel that good without drugs, you know. If I weren't an atheist, I would definitely say, "God bless you," if only because finding you so happy makes me happy. I wish I could reciprocate, and I guess I do to those who have a dark enough sense of humor. Like yourself, for instance.

Happy poor dead turkey day.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and Bacon Head LOL! I guess I need to call Millie "Potato head" now. That is a great print and I love the new background color.
