If you’re celebrating Thanksgiving, I hope it’s a lovely day for you and your family. We’re having a quiet celebration this year; it will just be the three of us. (Jeune Homme will be here for the weekend.) For the first time in a long time I’m not making a turkey. We ordered in a cooked turkey breast and some sides, so it’s just about re-heating.
Can I admit that I’m thankful for a more relaxed and less labor-intensive holiday this year? 😉I’m also thankful for all of us being in good health, and for JH seeming to settle in to his new Adult Day Program.
We’re getting some much-needed rain, which I’m always thankful for.
And I’m thankful for all of you who read, comment, and subscribe, and help make this online space feel like a real community. Thank you for being here, for your support and for sharing your thoughts.
Some Sad News
Those of you who follow me on Instagram may have seen this, but we said goodbye to sweet Byron over the weekend. He’d rallied for a couple of days after starting the steroids, but then went downhill rapidly. By Saturday morning he couldn’t even stand up, and seemed to be in a lot of pain. We decided not to prolong his misery, and called the vet.
His passing was peaceful and painless, thanks to our very skilled and compassionate vet. We’re very sad and miss him, but are also relieved that he’s no longer suffering. He was a small dog with a BIG personality. He could be really annoying at times: demanding, headstrong, and bossy, but he was also smart and sweet and very good with Jeune Homme. We loved him very much. We had a little over 14 years with him, which for Cavaliers is a long life. Coco, his half sister (in the background) is still doing well, and we’re giving her lots of love and attention.
A Couple Of Sales To Jump On…
I’ll be sifting through a mess of Black Friday sales today and will be back tomorrow with some of my picks, but I didn’t want you to miss out on these…
Aquatalia is offering 30% off everything (including styles already marked down) with code BLACKFRIDAY. I almost always include a pair of Aquatalia weatherproof ankle boots in my travel wardrobes; they’re comfortable, sturdy, and have day-to-evening style. Above, love that button detail!
And as a stocking stuffer, I love these colorful straps for shoulder or crossbody bags!
