Happy Thorsday, little friday, thankful thursday and December 1.
We escaped to the beach for a little vacation. That’s my favorite photo of the bunch. The glare of the sun, the warmth of the sand, the foam on the shoreline…
Gretchen shared her thoughts on our beach time. I’m pretty sure Sissy’s thoughts center around shrimp tails with every meal and DON’T LET THE WAVES TOUCH ME! She loves to walk on the shore, but she tends to stick to the dune side while Gretchen likes to be right at the water’s edge in pursuit of the birds. Sissy does enjoy sand crab hunting with the Knight, but he didn’t join us for beach walks this time.
We’re very thankful to have a place to retreat, relax, recharge and restore our bodies and spirits. I know some of you don’t understand why I don’t travel, but maybe there’s something to the zodiac stuff; I am a Cancer and I am a homebody. We have a rather perfect little get-away spot that feels rather like home, so… that’s where we go to get away.
I’m also very thankful for the private, unexpected doggy lesson a nice lady gave us on the beach. Gretchen’s anxiety breaks my heart, and clearly… we aren’t doing so well at managing it on our own. The time spent with the nice lady and her gentle, patient pack was well-spent, and Gretchen wasn’t so yappy and insecure for the rest of our stay. She’s even doing better on our walks at home when one of the neighborhood dogs with no sense of boundaries rushes at us.
Today marks the start of the holiday party season for me. I love a cookie swap, don’t you? Maybe I’ll remember to take photos at home and can tell you what I baked another day…
What are you thankful for today?
