Happy Thanksgiving!

Today is Thanksgiving Day in Canada. My husband and I are spending a lovely day together enjoying the absolutely, positively, perfectly wonderful autumn weather while doing the things we enjoy most. That is being outdoors with our dogs, my horse and Paul even took a motorcycle ride.

Early this morning we set off for the forest to give Noah, Gabriel and Paige, our Newfoundland dogs, a fun romp off leash.
Noah is my 7 month old Newfoundland puppy. He's black and stands behind Gabriel, my 3 1/2 year old Landseer Newfoundland. Noah still has a lot of growing to do and we feel certain he'll be a lot bigger than his brother and sister since he's still a puppy.
Above is Paige, my sweet Landseer girl.
Noah and Gabriel (above) set off to enjoy the scents of the fields and forest.
Noah has the longest tongue of any Newf I've ever owned. Of course he'd been exercising and was tired when I took the photo but that tongue of his is always hanging out one side or the other of his mouth.

After we returned home from our walk with the dogs, I fixed us a nice breakfast and then began preparing the turkey to be stuffed and put in the oven. Once I had all of the cooking preparation finished and cleaned up the kitchen, I went out to the barn to visit my sweet Gypsy mare.
As soon as Gypsy saw me walking through the field toward her she stopped grazing and came right to me.
Gypsy is the sweetest, most wonderful mare I could ever dream of. She is such a sweetheart and I love her to bits.

This is just a photo of the milkweed pods bursting and blowing the 'fairies' through the air. They were so pretty.

Well, it is now almost dinner time for a Thanksgiving dinner. The aroma of the turkey roasting smells WONDERFUL! The potatoes are cooking and I am trying out The Pioneer Woman's, cornbread and apple and herb stuffing. It looks delicious and I think if it tastes as good as it looks and smells it will become our new traditional stuffing (dressing). I also made a Pumpkin Cheesecake for dessert in lieu of the traditional pumpkin pie.

Ooohhhh I'm hungry so I'm going to post this and set the table and enjoy the rest of this good Thanksgiving day with my husband.

Happy Thanksgiving!



  1. Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving! The foods all sound as delicious as your day was lovely to look at.

  2. Oh, your animal family are all so beautiful .. and thanks for the needle felting tutorial - that's a craft I'd love to try some day. Think my next newfie will be a Landseer - but will wait a while yet.

  3. WOW it sound like I missed a delicious Thanksgiving meal and day your style. This is delightful to imagine how wonderful it all was.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. I truly appreciate them.
