Latest bunch, yellow maple and giving thanks

- My latest bunch of grocery store flowers.  So much beauty for only $5.99.  I pulled those outer leaves from the last bouquet and it made it prettier, I think. 

- The yellow maple (not sure what it is actually called) at the group mailboxes at the condos.  So beautiful and perfectly bare this morning due to all the rain the last couple of days.  I'm so glad I snapped it when I could.

- A friend from church sent this Thanksgiving card.  I like that the turkey is wearing a pilgrim hat.  :)  I always enjoy Thanksgiving, a day we set aside in the United States to give thanks for what we have.  I am thankful for the family I am heading to visit, for having Friday off, too, and thankful for your friendship!

Have a wonderful holiday if you celebrate it.  And have a wonderful rest of the week, friends outside the US.  I will post next Monday, since I often have trouble getting my internet service when down at the farm.  Have a great next few days!

I wish you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving.
The flowers look very cute. Sometimes what we can find in low low prices is amazing!

Just another boring day here in the UK!

Hope you have a great holiday!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
It isn't celebrated here - but the concept is one I strive for every day.

I always take the outer leaves off, too. Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope you're having a fabulous holiday weekend, Lynn! I think the touch of green in the vase only adds to the floral charm. :)

Okay I'm running a day late

Tho the bird was not flying

The pig did not squeal

The Fat person wasn't singing

And I had a few of my pills

A fifth or two of this

A Quart or four of that

I was quite happy

And forget where I was at

So I'm taking this time

to say my adduces

and wish you a great yesterday

or was that a week ago, or two





Happy November 28, 2013

The grocery flowers, the gorgeous tree, the special card are all perfect to express the joy of Thanksgiving! Your shared delight in such small treasures makes them huge.

Thinking of you down on the farm, or perhaps now back in Atlanta, or soon to be.

I like seeing the changing of that tree!

I have so much to be grateful for, your friendship still one of the many great blessings of my life!

And I like the style of your picture frames! Kind of a shabby chic. Pretty.

Munir -

Thank you - it was very nice.

Somehow I think your household is never boring.

Elephant's Child -

Me, too - a good way to be, I think.

In this case, I put them on, but off is good, too.

Joanne -

Isn't that pretty?

I think so, too. This bunch is still thriving, except the roses.

I am thankful for your friendship, too, Jannie Muffin.

Yes - I love those frames. I've had them quite a while. You can just see my young dad's handsome self there on the left.

Hilary -

I say - buy them for yourself - that's my motto lately.

Cheers to you!

Snaggle -

That's OK - hope you had a happy Thanksgiving.

Lee -

No worries. Time is flying by!
