Yes, we are very late but still seasonal with our selfies this week...BOL!
|Since our own leaves are all gone by now, well, we had to make do, BOL! Sorry for the wee bit of fuzzy focus...|
|I am ready for that turkey, OK?!|
|We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!|
While petcretary did not have to be at her work, there was more than plenty to keep her way too busy here at home.
There was a roaming kitty a few days ago, and *she* had to move it out of harms way from our van twice, then since we were already n there, she put kitty in the yard....and saw er escape post haste, but she was already driving away! BOL! When she got home, we could sniff her but she wasn't around...later still petcretary was on FB, looking for how to let a rescue lady know some info, and lo and behold there was 'our' kitty! She was at the neighbor's place, where the lady had brought her inside. And she posted info about 'the lost kitty', who does she belong to, very friendly, etc. What kitty normally goes right up to strangers and even lets herself be picked up by them. A very social kitty indeed! And since petcretary does not have her phone number, well, she can't tell her who she thinks said kitty belongs to. *She* did leave a message on the neighbor's FB page, but with the new FB, well, she can't send it to her...sheesh. Well, she tried. Maybe if *she* knows that lady is home she will knock on her door. Sadly we cannot take her in here, cause the only kitties that petcretary is not allergic to, are orientals.
Anypaws, we were in the van...well, cause we had to go to *that* place...but Dr Ben said we were fine and see you next year! Hooray!
While we were there, Angel Pipo was given back to Petcretary. He has a beautiful little walnut box, with an engraved nameplate on it...so now all the original bloggers, (and Dogster/Catster), furry ones are reunited. Someday *she* will get them all together for a photo session...
Pawppy is doing quite well, he gets around using either the walker or the cane, depending what he is doing. The walker gets more use early in the morning, when the hours of laying in bed make him feel stiffer and a bit unsteady. He can now even put on his own socks and shoes! That was a milestone!
He started physio early this week, and got some exercises think homework...to do at home as well. There is very slow but steady improvement in his weak leg, the nerve damage will take a long time to heal, the doc thinks maybe even up to a year. Wow.
We had a nice Thanksgiving celebration, though there was no church service, as we are used to doing. Stupid virus...There was turkey and fixings, all more or less following our keto/paleo mix of eating. IE, no grains, no refined sugars, or even none at all, no processed foods, unless they were made by ourselves...and lots of veggies, fruits, and various protein sources. Plenty of good Earth Ale, too (water...) It is restrictive, but we are not hungry! Well, we do get hungry, but not in an abnormal craving sort of way.
She baked two grain-free loaves, one full of seeds and one just plain, with almond flour. Both were yummy, but the best one was with all the seeds, it gave a hearty texture. She made her own cranberry sauce, too. A bit spiced up, with oranges and ginger and other typical 'fall' spices. And she made a nut crusted pumpkin pie, YUM! With a good dump of whipped cream on top, Mmmm! Sorry, no pictures, she was too busy...
And we got a few tidbits of the white meat in our bowls, too, YUM!
Black Friday was quiet here, cause we did not indulge! At least not at
stores...and since the medical bills are piling up...well, we shop only
for what we need these days... and truthfully, we never really have done
much about joining in with the greedy crazy peeps that try to snag all
Today we made Teddy's Turkey Salad! That was really good, thanks for sharing that! We put a good amount of spring mix (greens) on our plates, and put the salad on top of them. Then we had our seeded bread on the side! Delicious! (Us hooligans didn't get any of that, though...)
The viral explosion at petcretary's nursing home is awful...but thankfully, so far all of her tests, (2x a week), are negative, and we hope and pray they stay that way.
|Petcretary was one of four first commenters at The Tuesday Teaser, this past week...again at Teddy's blog, so she got this 'badge'! Alas, while she was right with her guess, she was not first with it, BOL!|
|We are in the weekly Sunday Selfies Blog Hop! Thanks Miss Janet and your crew, for faithfully hosting this fun blog, each week! We love it and we love you!|
