Seven Plus One Days before OUR Thanksgiving Day!

It's been a busy day for me, this Friday my day off from work! I am preparing ahead for our Thanksgiving Day, which for us will be on Friday next, the day after Thanksgiving proper. I got up earlier than normal and started cleaning house. I picked up my art studio messes, not an easy task; I swifted the floors and mopped three bathroom tiled floors and the kitchen tile floor. I dusted. I covered patio furniture outside and took in things to the garage to protect them from the rain that is to fall any minute now. (garden tools, my hammock frame); I went to the grocery store for food, all the things I need that won't spoil between now and then. I'll shop again later in the week for the perishables. And on the way home................... I saw these turkeys in a field one block from our house. I drove the block home for my camera and drove back to photograph them from some distance. I like the slightly out of focus look to them almost like a painting don't you think? I may post a picture of them each day from now till T-Day! I think they are discussing hiding places knowing that the date is coming near.
Run turkey's run!!!


  1. I can just hear them...
    "where should we hide?"
    "I dunno - whadda ya think"
    "I think we should just stay here and close our eyes and no one will see us"

  2. Maybe they are saying "which one of us will be sacrificed this year?"

  3. Gobble, gobble ?...If I get too friendly with your two pals, I will skip eating their cousin at my Father-in-laws this year !
    I am lucky that he hosts the Thanksgiving pretty much every year. I bring the sweet potatoes (done with orange juice and maple syrup) and a dessert (Gluten Free Pumpkin Cheesecake this year for my newly diagnosed celiac Sister-in-Law) and that's all I have to do.
    I hope your week is filled with sweet moments to capture!
    Hugs !

  4. Actually I think they are arguing over which one will be pardoned by the President this year. :)

  5. may you have a wonderful turkey day. I am buying a free range turkey from local farmers, but would have a hard time with it if I saw him running around beforehand. Have a great day.

  6. If I had to kill the turkey I was to eat, I would become a vegan at once....I couldn't eat one if I "knew" him....hope these two are pets and will still be around on November 26th!
