We were just hanging out, watching some great football games. Dave was doing what Dave loves to do:
|"Mom. Hi, Mom."|
... and me? I had this restless feeling. I couldn't quite figure out what it was.
|"There was something I was supposed to do ..."|
It's this long weekend! It threw me off!
Dave said I shouldn't worry about it - that except for the last pic above, we looked mighty serene ... or at least he does ... so we could use those to show how relaxed we are in the evenings after we've had all of our walks for the day. It's true. We stay active during the day, and while Mom and Dad wind down and watch TV after dinner, we just like to hang out and enjoy everyone's company. Nothing beats time together!
I have a few other pix I've been meaning to share, so let me toss these in. Guess what Mom and I saw while we were out on one of our adventures?!? A hawk! He was in the grass by the sidewalk, having a snack. We saw him from the car. We see hawks a lot, but not that close! Mom stopped the car, but was afraid if we got out to get a photo of him, he'd fly off. Besides - guess who didn't have the camera? Mom improvised, and shot this out the sunroof with the iPhone:
Isn't that cool?!!? So strong and powerful! The hawk took off when she saw or heard us - but I think that worked to our advantage, don't you?!!?
The sunset on Thanksgiving was a beautiful one! It was very serene indeed, to look at it and to count all of our blessings:
It would have been even more serene if Mom had left this on the table unattended while she went out to photograph the sunset:

Not that I or Dave would help ourselves to something that wasn't ours. (Not any more, anyway!)
We hope you have a wonderful Sunday - remember to keep it serene!
Hi Zim, You are such a great helper to your mom and dad. Great pic of the hawk, wonder what kind of snack he was carrying. The sunset was so pretty and that pie looks amazing. I would love to get the recipe-never made a sweet potato pie before.ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful Sunday.
Wags, Noreen & Hunter
Nice recovery, Zim :) You know, there's an unwrittn rule that food left unattended for more than 2 seconds is fair game...ReplyDelete
How cool that you got to see the hawk up close and pawsonal! Have a great day!

(PeeS: Cinderella says woo.)

You recovered well there and great scenery pictures.. I love how you lie on mums legs Dave. Thats my favourite spot too.. Hugs GJ xxReplyDelete
Oh I am keeping it real serene. Let me just say this first off about the first photo from my MOM (like you don't know it is coming) Awwwwwww. That just relaxed her right up. We have a hawk that lives at our church. She is real cool. And in the spring she had a little one with her. This was a wonderful post and I know I do feel all serene like.ReplyDelete
You are so good pals re the food. It was asking to be sniffed at, well at least. Have s super serene Sunday. See you tomorrow.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly
What a great shot of the hawk. Glad you remembered serene SundayReplyDelete
Benny & Lily
How cool that you guys got to see a hawk like that. The sunset is beautiful as well. :)ReplyDelete
Good job pulling together this serene post Zim! That hawk is pretty cool! We would have loved a taste of that whipped cream on that pie! Yum!ReplyDelete
We're glad you managed to pull off your serene post today Zim. That sunset was beautiful, but that pie looks yummy.ReplyDelete
Cindy & Millie
Oh, ya just had to show a picture of that sweet potato pie, didn't ya.ReplyDelete
On that note, I have a small confession. The neighbor dog was running out on the street and Mrs. Master went to catch him and take him home (no one seemed to notice he was out and about) and left her cake on the sofa.ReplyDelete
It was delicious if I do say so myself.
That's nice you don't steal food. I haven't in such a long time they took it for granted =)
How cool that you got to see a hikeReplyDelete
Stop on by for a visit
Do you mind if we help ourselves to that sweet potato pie if you and Dave aren't going to eat it, Zim?ReplyDelete
Love your sunset!
Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly
I love your startled face!ReplyDelete
The pic of the sunset is AWESOME! Did you save me a piece of that pie?ReplyDelete
