I always like starting positive. So yesterday I had a finish. This is JBW Turkey. I had finished the Squirrel and found out a friend of mine had the Turkey pattern. So we traded with each other. I used Weeks Dye Works thread called Sweet Potato. Figured that was appropriate for Thanksgiving time don't you? The picture turned out a little dark.
We had 12 here at our home for Thanksgiving. We had a lovely time. Unfortunately there was family not here but that's a whole lot of drama that I'm not talking about today. Grandma (My mom's mom) had a nice day and that's all that matters. We didn't have turkey we had ham so Jeremiah said we should call it Hamkey day instead haha. I started to get a sore throat the night before. Now it's a full blown head cold. Accompanied by one of those coughs that hurt your whole body. Fun Fun.
Guinea Pig Update....I noticed Fuzzy didn't look well at all Thanksgiving day. We gave him his shot and he just didn't seem okay. I told Jeremiah to get prepared. Thanksgiving night I glanced in the cage and he was going downhill quickly. He passed away in the evening. Jeremiah and I had a good cry about him. We buried him in the backyard. Poor little guy just couldn't make it any longer. We are glad he's not in pain any longer. So even though I was sick and it was Black Friday we knew we would head out and find another guinea pig for Fillmore to have a cage mate. So we headed out. Our first stop had good sales on supplies so we bought a cart full of goodies. Their guinea pigs were all girls though. So we headed to Petco and hit the mother load haha. Mom and me couldn't decided between these two. So I jokingly told to the girl to put it in the box and mom wouldn't find out. Yep you guessed it we have 3 guinea pigs now.
This is the 2 new ones. Gonzo on the right. Porkchop on the left.
This is our one we already had named Fillmore. He replaced Wuzzy after we found out he was aggressive. That happened about a week ago. So hopefully our guinea pig drama is OVER for awhile! We are pretty sure Fuzzy was sick since we got him cause he was never really active. When we brought the two new ones home they started whistling. The most adorable part was Fillmore got so excited and ran around looking for the other pigs he heard. When we put them together it was love at first sight and then ran and played and are still having so much fun together. I'm so glad they all get along and they love their pen and all their goodies. We are very happy critter owners now. I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving and is enjoying the weekend with as much relaxing as possible. I'm coughing and hurting but at least relaxing.
