The extended Thanksgiving holiday in northern Florida was beautiful and warm. The sunflowers are from the crop in the lower fields and my great niece Kloie made the Thanksgiving card, using her hand. I love that kids still do that! The round, green cylinder on the right is the birthday hat she made for my brother-in-law, who was a good sport and wore it in the restaurant, where we celebrated his birthday the evening before Thanksgiving. Passing wait staff said, "Happy Birthday, Pepaw!" as they passed.

My sister got the idea for this structure for swings via Pinterest and had it built. We christened the new brick fire pit in the center on Saturday night by toasting marshmallows over it. The night sky was so beautiful that I could actually see the stars (something that gets lost in the city skies where I live.)
It made nephew Curtis smile that I was walking around snapping photos with my phone on Sunday morning, right before departure. I was soaking up the beauty, I said. And I was trying to get his dog Hank in the photo - there he is in the background. Hank loves roaming this property - it's like a giant vacation for him - being on the farm.
