You may remember from this post that I was breaking my Thanksgiving tradition this year and spending the holiday elsewhere. Of course I wanted to go somewhere that was sunny and dry. Here are some clues as to where I went. See if you can guess.
At the foot of the guest bed was this "Danger Corner." My host reads Danger Garden daily. Hmmm.
Two beautiful and goofy dogs shared their house with me.
O.K. Whose bed is this anyway?
Although I was away from home, I was with my family. (I'm related to someone in this picture.)
While I was sitting at my hosts' computer, this caught my eye from the window. Yup, it's a moose. Do you see the nose of the calf way over on the left side of the picture?
Here's the cow and her calf. Like deer, moose are herbivores. In winter an adult moose consumes 22 - 30 pounds of branches, bark, shrubs, trees each day. If one wishes for his/her garden to not to be eaten to the ground each year, it's best to have a fence.
You probably guessed by now that while it was indeed sunny and dry, it certainly wasn't warm outside, comparitively speaking, that is.
One last clue.
If you guessed that I spent the week of Thanksgiving in Wasilla, Alaska, you'd be correct. I stayed with my eldest niece, her husband, and their dogs and also my eldest sister & her hubby/dogs for part of my visit. They were going to come to my place this year but instead decided to fly me up there and pay (bribe) me to get on an aeroplane (something of which I'm not fond.) I am now officially a whore. We had a great family Thanksgiving for while it was cold outside it was certainly warm inside figuratively as well as literally.
Stay tuned for more from north of the Great White North.
