Thanksgiving

Under southern California circumstances, a photo of chocolate turkeys in the rain is appropriate for Thanksgiving. Chocolate, turkeys and rain are just three of the many things I'm thankful for.

I could go on, but let it suffice to say that the list of things for which I'm grateful is far longer than the list of those for which I'm not.

I started writing this long, preachy thing about looking on the bright side on a rainy day, blah blah. But you know whether to be thankful or not. You know what's working for you and what isn't.

So let me just wish you a happy Thanksgiving. Today and every day, may you find your equivalent of chocolate, turkeys and rain.

Nice of the vendor to give these cute chocolate turkeys little raincoats. You're right -- lots to be thankful for every day. I started the day very happy I didn't have to get up and go to work, and will soon be cooking in my mom's kitchen. I can already taste mom's pies. Happy Thanksgiving to you, John and Boz!

Margaret said...

Happy Thanksgiving day to you, too. And may all your turkeys be choocloate.

Petrea said...

A cozy day to you all! Slept late, took the dog for his morning perimeter check and am now sipping my coffee. It's sunny and cold and perfect. Happy Thanksgiving!

J+P said...

Mmmm … choturklate …

Bellis said...

Perimeter check - ha ha. That's what Abby wants to do every morning. It gives her great pleasure to tease the dogs stuck behind fences. I'm quite glad I can't understand what they're shouting.

Turkey chocolates must be very hard to make, but what a great idea.

Happy Thanksgiving, and don't let the turkeys get you down.

Petrea said...

Yes, Boz has to check to make sure everything's copacetic. It's his territory, after all, and he's responsible if anything's out of place. He takes an adjutant along who will put things to right if anything's amiss.

I'm thankful for all my wonderful blogger friends who make me chuckle and think every day!!!

Petrea said...

Those are the words you took out of my mouth, Chieftess.

I'll take turkey, chocolate and pumpkin pies. Or chocolate pumpkin cheesecake pies. Or just... you get my drift. Fun shot! Have a great one!

Speedway said...

Chocolate turkeys in little raincoats! Cool!

Quiet day here, with rain to make up for all we hadn't gotten through the summer.

Thankful for a quiet time with family, warm food and kind feelings.

My best to you all.

Susan Campisi said...

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you enjoy your turkey in all its forms today. (I'll take the chocolate, thank you.)

Petrea said...

Have you all eaten already? We're saving room for later.

altadenahiker said...

It won't be ready until about 7. We do things later up here. Hope boz is chipperer.

TheChieftess said...

Dinner in twenty minutes!!!

Bellis said...

We celebrated by going to the movies to see "Made in Dagenham,"and now it feels like we're in England!

TheChieftess said...

We're stuffed!!! Just finished pumpkin pie and homemade whipped cream...the kids and granddaughter are playing rock band....(ad nauseum)
But I wouldn't have it any other way...

Keith said...

I'm thankful for good cooks in the family willing to feed me. Happy Thanksgiving!

Petrea said...

Just got back from dinner out. I'm stuffed! Dessert was best (as always).

Dina said...

Haha, I never even heard of a chocolate turkey.

So glad you had rain.
I give thanks for you and John and Boz and all your commenting friends.

Petrea said...

Dina, thank you. I'm thankful for you, too.

Happy Thanksgiving!

We found a hike to the waterfall in Eaton Canyon, a roaring fire (in the fireplace), and a relaxing day with family.

It was a good day.
