Happy Thanksgiving plus Flashback, Foodie and Flaunt your Flowers Friday
Flashing back over the time that's past since last Thanksgiving I found many things to be thankful for. Like friends who invite us to spend holidays with them and to share in the wonder of little kids waiting for Santa.
Like having an assistant nurse to help care for my patient, also known as my sweet and loving husband Randy who I'm also very thankful for.
Like parents who've celebrated their 75th birthdays in good health.
Like visits from favorite cousins
Like my favorite NFL team winning the Superbowl
Like having flowers blooming in February
Like still enjoying egg dying at Easter even if I don't have kids in the house.
Like baby Robins learning to fly on our back patio
Like finding a great donut recipe
Like enjoying a visit from my favorite son by marriage
Like still having room for "one more" new plant in my yard
Like having a cute little yard helper
Like having beautiful local gardens to visit
Like having a yard full of flowers from spring until frost
Like having a veggie and herb garden that keeps me always looking for new recipes.
Like having incredible scenery a short ride away
Like having even more scenery a little farther away
Like fun at the Fair
Like having Fairies living under my rhododendron
Like having a new job I'm loving and that happens to be a block from a great Farmer's Market
And like having the opportunity to spend time with my family in Louisiana and here in Washington a time or two
These are just a few of the things I'm thankful for from the past year. I'm also thankful for this blog because of the opportunity to share, the beautiful comments that so many of you leave and the friends that I've made. I hope that all of you had a blessed Thanksgiving!
If you have anything you'd like to Flashback to and or anything you're thankful for, add your link below and link back to my blog.
I'm joining in over at Flaunt your Flowers at Tootsie Time and Foodie Friday at Design's by Gollum this week. Check them out!
