What a gorgeous Black Friday. I didn't spend a dime (if you don't count coffee, gas and dinner) and had a wonderful day enjoying the gift of this incredible weather. I went for a looooooong run and took to Basset's to the dog friendly Overlook Park where we had a blast running with insane Afghan… Continue

Ah, its only a few days away now: Thanksgiving! Here's hoping you have something fun planned and get a day or two to relax and enjoy the holiday with family and friends. I'm hoping for a nice bird, a relaxing day and some time at the dog park with my crazy hounds.

My white picket fence and arbor is already turning green, and my rose bushes need a winter trim. And I already forgot to plant flower bulbs for next spring, and now it is soggy and wet outside so I may not get to that at all this year.
