Frosty Trees

The weather on Wednesday was perfect for transforming some small old trees into frosty white ones.
After three cans of white spray paint and three 24" trees and one larger one at 48" tall my index finger was tired. They make me think of a cold foggy morning when my evergreens are covered in frost and looking like a fairy forest.
Next on the list is to move some furniture around in the living room and get the mantle and hearth cleaned and ready for an inside forest for Christmas. Maybe the elves will decide to help.

Giving Thanks

Expressing my gratitude for my family and friends is important to me this week of Thanksgiving. Especially letting my blogging friends, from places I've never been in this wonderful world, know how dear you all are to me. Your visits, kindness and comments have helped me tremendously during the past two years since I've had to live Plan B of my life.
May you and your families have a safe, warm, blessed Thanksgiving!

And to start your celebration here is a link to a video I watched this morning. Please click and you should be able to watch it. Sorry, I've never learned how to add one to a post. It just made me smile because the mom is so sweet.♥♫

Glorious Flag

The blue skies and warm fall temperatures were a bonus when we spotted this magnificent flag gently blowing in the breeze.
We just stood for several minutes watching the flag, waiting for the perfect moment. Trying to avoid the utility lines would have meant take a picture directly into the sun and wouldn't have worked. What a wonderful sight!

Barn Quilts

My two sweeties and I went to town and got that flat fixed, shopped, and went to lunch and found three more quilts.

Blossom Squash

Both on the front of The Country Steak Out.

The bonus was this bright red and white quilt on the north side of the road on a shed of some sort. No home nearby or business, just know that it was also on East 8th Avenue.
One of these days, I am going to venture out into the country to find all the other ones. There are MANY more!

Four, Flat, Friends

Four degrees this morning! Went out to start the car early so it could warm up. FLAT tire! Since we had our second snow storm yesterday and no school, I didn't use the car as we had blizzard conditions in the morning.
Thank goodness for fabulous FRIENDS that will travel out of the way to come and get me. And take me home after school! Got out the air compressor and filled the tire to see if it will stay up over night. If so, someone will follow me to town to get it fixed on Saturday. Grandpa and I fixed this one last summer together, so I do know how it do it. Just don't want to in this cold air! I love how my friends take care of me. They are the best!!
