"Tis the Season......

....No, wait! It's Thanksgiving, not Christmas. I couldn't tell by looking out my front door.
Oh, I'm sure there will be lots of snow pictures being posted this weekend. This is what my pumpkins now look like. I was so proud to have grown these and had hoped they would last until this weekend. It has been a success, the snow is preserving them for a few more days.

My back yard has a bit of an issue. The winds were so strong last weekend that my fence fell over. I'm thankful it went into my neighbors yard, now there is a bit of an incentive to fix the fence. I seem to remember a conversation I had with them about the fence in the summer......hmmmm.


My g.f. Muriel (no blog) loves to make matching items to go with her quilts. This sure looks inviting after seeing my chairs.

I'm thankful that I have a gas fireplace so if the power goes out, I'll stay warm. I'm thankful that I have water this weekend, unlike Monday morning.
I'm thankful that I have a Subaru so I can make it to Thanksgiving dinner.
And I'm thankful for the friends, family, fabric and health that I have in my life.
Enjoy the season.

Happy Thanksgiving Sharon. By the way, you can keep the snow. I am sure it will be here in MI before long, but it can hold off as long as it wants.

The snow is beautiful but I am thankful that I don't have to deal with it. Driving in snow always scared me.

I'm cold just looking at the snow photos. It is cold here tonight but we have lucked out with no moisture in the air.

Hard to get your head around pictures like these when we are having such warm weather. What part of the US do you live in? Very pretty to look at but hard to live with, I imagine.

Do you know what type of evergreens those are in your first picture? They're so beautiful with their soft, feathery needles. Wonder if they'd grow here in TX? Beautiful snow but glad it's there rather than here!! LOL
