It was the Canadian Thanksgiving this past long weekend,
which means lots of food and family time!
Although, for me, I just spent it with my mom & the cat & the dog.
I wasn't able to join in on the family festivities due to a continuing illness (insert violins here).
However, I did eat pumpkin pie! So, I can't complain.
I felt perky enough to take Grace for a wee walk on another spectacular October day;
the weather has been so warm & welcoming this past week!
I love it when the milkweed breaks open to let its fluffy seedpods catch the wind,
so I found myself playing with the fluffy stuff
all the while looking up into the blue blue sky.
Gracie (almost) has a new friend, and her name is Shannon.
Shannon is a long-haired Dachshund! She makes me swoon.
She and Gracie seem to get along quite wonderfully, so I had high hopes of puppy playdates.
However, something happened between the two that left Grace with overly aggressive behaviour.
The fun stopped, and we were all quite shocked by the outburst.
I just don't get dog behaviour; they were happy & friendly and then BAM! snarl.snap.grrr.
I felt like the worst puppy mama; I hope Shannon & her owner forgive the transgression.
I so adore the long-haired doxies ...
Shannon the doxie! only 10 months old; so sweet!
I continue to work on my redesign for Tea & Chickadees! I'm doodling away, slowly creating the new space. I think I'll get it all done by the end of the week, so I do hope the sparse furnishings around these parts won't keep you at bay!
