So… now what?

(via Peanuts)

I think Snoopy’s predicament above accurately represents how I feel the day after a big holiday. Planning, preparation, anticipation… and then it’s over, just like that.  I made some yummy cranberry sauce muffins this morning to help fill the void.  Now I need a new project…

In the meantime, it’s time for this week’s No Frown Friday:

  1. Your punny pet names for the week reveal that I still haven’t accepted the fact that Thanksgiving is over: Myles Foodish and William Labford.  (For my fellow pun lovers, you simply must read last Sunday’s Pearls Before Swine. Can you figure it out?)
  2. Want to see something amazingly adorable? Check out these photos of dogs dressed as turkeys.  All will seem right with the world after you do.
  3. Don’t eat too many leftovers… or else this might be your fate.  (Not sure what to do with all of those leftovers?  Serious Eats has some ideas.)
  4. Did you cook a turkey yesterday? I hope that you weren’t the one that asked these stupid questions of the Butterball hotline.

Speaking of turkey, this puppy would really appreciate it if you could send some her way:

(For more videos of dogs who want turkey, go here.)

Anyway, I’m finally going to see the new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows tomorrow.  I know… after my recent Potter-themed post, I bet you thought I’d be first in line on opening day.  Unfortunately, things have just been too busy.  In honor of my pending movie trip, I made my own butterbeer to go with dessert last  night – it was a hit (and unlike Universal Studios, I offered an alcoholic version as well). 

As I write this post, the peace talks between Roscoe and Bella have reached a new level – they’re both sleeping on the couch at the same time (dreaming of turkey, no doubt).  Expect some photos and a recap after Bella’s hostessing duties are done.

Hope you had a wonderful holiday!

  1. Aww, that comic is so cute. And that poor bulldog! If only he was tall enough.

    I hope you had a great holiday and enjoy the movie immensely!

  2. I can relate to you and Snoopy – there's such a let down after all the rushing around and it's all over. Hope you had a nice day.

  3. Hi Y'all,
    Thanks for stoppin' yesterday.
    As for dog's "dressed" as turkeys…they are very brave…around here this time of year they hunt turkey…it's bad enough bein' the same color as the deer…I don't want to be mistaken for a turkey!
    Y'all come back now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog
    P.S. My Humans say that the Holiday season comes and goes too quickly.

  4. Hope you enjoyed Harry Potter, I've yet to see it but heard it's great! Also, homemade butterbeer sounds awesome!! Happy holidays!

  5. That bulldog is hilarious! Our half English, half French bulldog sat and gave us the 'puss in boots' eyes the entire time we were eating our Thanksgiving dinner. Unfortunately, he's on a diet and VERY unhappy with us! 🙂

  6. Rescued Insanity and Ellie – I loved the movie! I can't believe now I have to wait for part 2.

    Hawk – I'm with your humans. The holidays always end just when I'm finally able to relax and enjoy them.

    illumi – You're stronger than me to resist the sad puppy dog eyes!

    K-9 Katastrophe – wow! Thank you. 🙂
