I had just finished breakfast and was in the midst of oatmeal raisin cookie preparation when I looked out the window and saw the Great Blue Heron. He comes to our beachfront often. Since I wasn't prepared for taking pictures, a quick hand washing was in order and I grabbed up the camera and took a shot through the window. He saw me and immediately flew away! Back to cookie making.

Near the end of the batter mixing, I have to call for help to stir in the oats and raisins as the batter is too stiff for me. He is so willing, it makes me laugh. He must want cookies! Ya think?
Well, the project of the day is completed.
And Pal begged and begged but never touched them and can't eat them anyway, He is one of those dogs that has a sensitive stomach and both he and we would have to pay the price if he were to take a bite! His birthday is coming soon - Dec. 2 - and he will be 14!
"Hey, Mom! did you bake cookies - AGAIN?"
"They look good"
"They smell good!"
"Are you SURE I can't have just one?"
Yes, it has been a good day.
We wish everyone we know and those we love to have a very happy Thanksgiving Holiday. Pig out! Enjoy your lives together! BE THANKFUL!
