Gobble, Gobble...And Gobble!

Here in my little corner of the world, it is a most marvelous day known as Thanksgiving. We like Thanksgiving. It is a day pretty much meant for those of us who enjoy large meals followed by long naps.

The Sheep family gathered early in order that we might accommodate Baby Brother Sheep and his new gang of near ones and dear ones. They had a second dinner scheduled for later in the day and no one minded sitting down a bit earlier than usual. In fact, I was rather pleased to be able to start scarfing down my turkey 'n stuffing before the normal ringing of the starting bell.

This gives me more time for digesting. Then I can start in with the consumption of leftovers even sooner. Did I mention that I really love this particular holiday? Thankful. That's what I am. Any minute now, all that stuff I ate earlier will be out of the way and I can begin the evening dining extravaganza...

The downside of the day is that I seem to have a headache of rather epic proportions and the application of OTC pain killers has yet to really beat it into submission. That is not going to stop me, though. I will power through this setback. Do not worry yourselves one little bit. Those leftovers will no go unattended while I am on duty!

The knitting, however, has not seen much in the way of attention. I brought the new project along with me today, but didn't really get to it. I blame the baby. Babies are cute and you just want to look at them. Great Nephew Sheep is no exception. In fact, I think he may even be a smidgen over the normal cuteness level, but I don't want to sound biased. There were also wedding pictures to look at once the baby left for the next family visit so you can see how I might not have time to fling yarn about. Maybe if the old noggin stops throbbin' in the near future, I'll be able to wend my way about a round or two.

Or I'll just leave it for tomorrow and focus on those leftovers. Either way, it will go down in the annuls of Thanksgiving History as a good day. I hope that those of you celebrating the holiday had a wonderful day as well and that your leftover situation is satisfactory.

The Absurdly Gi-normous Kitty would also like to send you his wish for a pleasant day. Most boys wouldn't let their mommies do this sort of thing, but my guy is a natural celebrant. He's all about the holidays. I thought that his plan might be a bit over the top, but he was really quite insistent on the matter. So, for your viewing pleasure and with thanks to the nice people at Picnik for their editing assistance, I give you...The Absurdly Gi-normous Pilgrim Boy!!!





With pie, no less...

I didn't know that Absurdly Ginormous Kitties liked pumpkin pie. But he looks like he is ready to guard his to the death. Happy t'day!

I'm assuming the AGK already licked all the whipped cream off his slice of pie?

Kath said...

Ohhh...I'm not too surprised he was up for it. After all, he's all about the food! But he does look darn cute!

Dear heavens! That is truly an Absurdly Gi-normous Kitty. You are so lucky no one came chasing after him with a shotgun or a meat cleaver yesterday!

A mother knows!
There was someone waiting for that piece of pumpkin pie that you took home.
Enjoy the leftovers,
Mom

I sent pie home with one daughter much to the consternation of the rest of the family. I had to promise to make more on Sunday. I'm glad your day was a good one. Hope your headache was finally beasted.
