thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! Here in Canada, we celebrate it a bit earlier than you folks in the States. It makes perfect sense to me - the harvest is abundant, and there's a longer break between turkeys than if it's at the end of November. But if you're like my sister, who lives in NH, you celebrate both days - now that's clever. We have stock simmering, turkey and dressing waiting to go in the oven, cranberry sauce made, and pie crust waiting to be rolled. And so very much to be thankful for.

 This crow sat there, at the top of that tree and cawed at me the whole time I was hanging out clothes yesterday. I thought he might want some attention, so I got the camera. And he promptly took off.
























Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. That crow probably knows you. They can recognize faces. It was probably telling you to eat more Thanksgiving treats, but that's just a guess. They are VERY smart...
