Just a Simple Day at Home

As a teacher I am fortunate to have the day before & after Thanksgiving off. It is a wonderful time to just hang out at home, clean, get the Christmas decorations out, snack all day, and spend time loving the animals. Last night the area where I live, considered a secondary snowbelt in Northeastern Ohio, had a mini-blizzard. It was the real heavy, wet snow that sticks to all the trees. This morning chores were taken in stride as I did not have to rush around like a mad woman to get to work on time. I thought I would share some pre-Thanksgiving snow with anyone who stops by to read about me & the "kids".

I love those garden flags and the winter months make no difference:)
A little clingy snow to the garden decorations.............

and a view of the creek that runs along the south property line. This a wonderful place for my dogs to hang out at esp. because the rabbits have little hiding places and they love to drive the beagles crazy.

Sometimes little Squirt gets caught sneaking under the neighbors fence. I am fortunate to have wonderful neighbors who laugh at my beagles antics as they run in their back pasture after rabbits. I have found all the places that the beagles can squeeze under.
Today is put out the snowmen day so I am off to decorate with their happy little least 'till February, then they have to be packed up:)
Wishing everyone a happy & restful Thanksgiving Holiday.
Remember to be thankful for all the little things in our lives that put the biggest smiles on our faces.

I love garden flags too, I haven't put mine out here yet. I never got the day before Thanksgiving off when I taught, you're very lucky.
