Just a Walk in the Park

On Thanksgiving Monday, I had my sister, brother-in-law and one of my neighbours over for dinner so I didn't want to make my day too hectic. After getting the potatoes done for the stuffing and having our breakfast, I took the dogs over to the park. It was a sunny bright morning, the first one we've had with real frost.

 I think the leaves are at their peak right now. I wish the fall season would last a little longer. It's my favourite season but already the leaves are falling.

This time at the park I even managed to get a few good pictures of the dogs. I'm not sure what they're looking at in the pictures. I wasn't snapping my fingers or holding out treats so it's amazing to me that I got a few with them looking in the same direction.

The one on the play structure is my favourite. I tried to get them both in front of the slide but Keltic moved and Beckett laid down but the shot worked out just fine.  Keltic then came down the stairs to get off the structure but Beckett came down the slide. Keltic then tried twice to go back up on the slide. It didn't work too well.

Then it was home to continue my preparations for dinner. Once the turkey was in the oven, the vegetables all prepped and the table set, I made a relaxing day of it.

Once again, I'm thankful for all that I have.  Friends and family with whom I can spend time and who I can call upon when I need a little help.  The resources to do things I enjoy such as playing agility with my dogs and doing a little travelling.

Thanksgiving leftovers
Nothing better than leftovers, the flavours always seem just a little bit better. Tomorrow, hot turkey sandwiches and french fries.


  1. YUM! Looks like a perfect Thanksgiving Day.

  2. What beautiful beautiful colors and dinner looked great

    1. And Beckett and Keltic were happy with turkey and gravy on their kibble.

  3. Those colours of the leaves are so beautiful. It is one of the scenes that we can't see over here at all and I love fall.

  4. Wonderful colours.
    I do love the Autumn shades and wish the season lasted longer too.
    Here it's a poor showing @ the moment as no frosts yet but they'r getting closer as down to 2c this morning!

  5. PS - Seeing Becket & Keltic in such unisom really made me smile - they are lovely pups.

  6. Everything looks beautiful!!! Great shots too!

  7. Love the slide photo. So neat that Beckett went down the slide -- bet it was fun!
