I'm thankful for 32 mph wind gusts...

...that usher in clear skies and cool temperatures. It's not supposed to be warm and muggy in Virginia on Thanksgiving.

Good times!

And I'm thankful for vacation days from school. Because there's no way I could've taken this shot without four extra hands. 

Turkey and Pumpkin

But the thing I'm most thankful for today -- especially as the out-of-school girl children and I were balancing ourselves in a wind storm at the end of a long pier, trying to get a couple decent shots of the adorably adorned dogs, who, incidentally, need to work on their sit-stays --  

You make it so totally worth it. Today and every day. :)

That's me with my head cut off and hair in my mouth. :)

Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends!

To everyone else, Happy Day!

Elizabeth, Jon Farleigh and Dewi

  13. such cuties!

    i know that cool, dry air makes it feel like the holidays, and that's always nice, but i would kill for some warm and muggy air. it's really been far warmer than usual in NY, but i'm already freezing my butt off. i'm so jealous of southerners!

  14. Thanks for the thanks, everybody. Still worth it. :)

    @GLP's Typist - 32 mph dog wind would be really scary.

    @Lauren - We were 75F and sunny today. Not right for almost December in VA. Wanna trade? :) I don't like having to dress for summer and winter in the same week.

  15. Yay what fun! So great to celebrate the holidays with some fun outdoor activities.
