Hi there and welcome to Friday’s Fave 5. It’s been a glorious week here on the Island ~ sunny and mild ~ perfect weather for getting outside to enjoy the autumn splendor.
1. Every year, I make a trek to Moore’s Bird Sanctuary to try to capture this scene ~ my tree trio.
It has to be timed perfectly to get the three trees in full autumn leaf. The change varies from year to year so I’m never quite sure when to go. Some years I head over too early and one tree is still green. Other years I go too late and the leaves are fallen. This year? Perfect timing!
The general WWW food guideline is “bring a sandwich and something to share”. Simple and saves countless email planning.
3. A visit to the pumpkin patch with Sarah and Josie.
4. An easy and festive Thanksgiving centerpiece. I’m not particularly gifted with flower arranging or gorgeous tablescapes, as some of my blogger friends are, so when I saw this
easy – ahem – pretty! idea online, I copied. Simple yet festive.
5. My final fave was our Thanksgiving hike. It’s becoming a family tradition, although last year it rained, so games were the order of the day. This year the weather was glorious, so after the main course we headed out.
After the walk, we went back home to a game of football (for some – dishes for others 🙂 thanks girls!) then dessert, (pumpkin, apple and butterscotch pie) and a noisy game of Dutch Blitz. A very thank-full day. I’m so grateful to the Lord for all His goodness and the countless blessings we enjoy.
And do you know what? You are on my blessing list too! Thanks for coming by!
