Thankful this week for
1. a tang in the air that is distinctly November.
Crisp, with a slight whiff of wood-smoke.
And so crystal clear – you can see for miles.
2 . the last of autumn’s glory – the oaks. Roger planted this oak tree in our yard about thirty years ago.
I remember saying to him “Someday, we’ll put up a swing in this tree for the children.”, and he answered,”Well, maybe our grandchildren.” That seemed like such a far off distant time in those days – and yet, here we are! I think the branches could handle a swing or two now 🙂
3. a little bit of colour that still remains in the garden. November blooms – what a gift!
4. a special day one year ago ~ Nov.7th ~ Ivy and Ezra joined our family.
A busy, wonder-filled year! Party time this Sunday!
5. our dear little dog, Sophie. We had to say goodbye to her this week.
She was part of our family for over 14 and a half years. I’m so thankful for those years we shared together. She was a good dog, a wonderful companion, and so gentle with everyone, especially the grandchildren.
That evening Sarah and I had a long walk along the trail on the Montague River.
How Sophie loved to join Sarah and me for a walk!
She will be missed. ❤
As always, thanks so much for dropping by this week.
with love and thanks for you,
