Happy Thanksgiving


Just wanted to wish all my American readers/friends a Happy Thanksgiving. - To those who don't celebrate I wish you a wonderful day as well.
This year will be quite different for many.  For me it's my first Thanksgiving without my mom and while I miss her a lot I know she wouldn't want me to not celebrate the day.  I'll watch the (Cowboys game in her honor as they were her favorite team).
The family gathering will be small but we will still enjoy good food, laughter and be thankful for the many blessings God has given us.
God Bless.

Willy Nilly Friday Five - Two Weeks worth

 Thank you to everyone who wished me well on my Cataract surgery this week. - I am happy to report it was a HUGE success.

Now on to WILLY NILLY FRIDAY FIVE  hosted by Tom The Backroads Traveller.  - I'm doing last week & this week in this post.
1. Spotted this bush out on a walk. - You could almost call it a, Burning Bush.

2. Saw some deer on a drive recently.  The one in the front had a hurt leg.  You can see she's holding it up off the ground.

3. Squirrel leftovers? - Maybe someone picked it and was doing the loves me, loves me not routine.  Who knows but it caught my attention.

4. Brightly colored oak leaves.  Both are from the same tree.

5. These ducks were out and about for a little swim in a creek near the oak tree.

6.  A little train graffiti 

7.  Some cheery daisies on a drizzly day.

 8.  Pumpkins for the kids

9.  Mushroom - They seem to be popping up all over the place.
10.  My mom loved to put up little decorative flags so after she passed away & my daughter moved into the house she is carrying on the tradition and bought this little flag to display.

That's it for me this week. - Leaving you with a song that is fitting for me this week.

Little Things Thursday - Pumpkin Art

Hello & Welcome. - I thought I would join Tamar (Random-osity) for:


Coleen (my granddaughter) is taking Advanced Art in school this year so as one of her projects she decided to do some sidewalk chalk art.

I didn't get shots of her rough outline before she started but you can see the white chalk marks of the pumpkin outline in this photo.

She continued to color and blend with her fingers and water.
Below is a close-up of how she was blending the chalks.

The finished pumpkin with the wet outline of the shadow.  

 The completed Pumpkin after the shadow had dried.

A close-up of the stem showing the detail of her work.

Sadly she wasn't able to turn this in due to the fact that she was supposed to follow a prompt of (Architecture) but she could turn it in later for credit.
We had rain later in the week...


The pumpkin begins to run and fade.
As of yesterday all that remains is a faint outline of the pumpkin, the shadow and her hand prints from when she laid them on the sidewalk after blending.

I am thankful for having a wonderful granddaughter, I'm thankful that God gave her such a talent and she loves art.
I'm thankful for the rain (we needed it) even though I was sad to see her art work go.
I'm thankful for cameras that we can capture these special memories.
