Praise the bridge that carried you over. ~ George Colman
M and I are having our Thanksgiving dinner with friends, something that has become a tradition with us since our sons are now a good distance away and the rest of our families are back east. We have been blessed with friends who have become family to us, and I’m looking forward to spending time with them. We’ve all been living busy lives lately and haven’t had much time together. Life is like that at times.
I have a great many blessings in my life and could write a long post about them, probably forgetting some here and there. But what I really want to do today is say thank you to YOU, all of my wonderful visitors to the blog. Thank you for stopping by. Thank you for reading and looking at my photos. Thank you for commenting (or not commenting, because I am thankful for my lurkers too).
I appreciate and am grateful for you all.
Thank you. 😀
Happy Thanksgiving to those of you out there celebrating it today!
Will be filled in later. It’s been raining like crazy here for the past few hours. The prediction is for up to 2-3 inches of rain. It came in as a warm front. Imagine if it had been a cold front! We’d be buried in snow. The snow won’t be here until tomorrow when the temperatures drop. I think Saturday is our best chance for the lake-effect stuff.
So. I’ll either come back later and fill this in or add today’s walk to tomorrow’s post. Either way, I will get outside, even in the pouring rain.
Happy Tday, Robinlette!
Thanks, J. 🙂 Same to you. I hope that turkey doesn’t give you too much trouble.
Happy Thanksgiving! And thank YOU too! Have a wonderful day.
I hope your Thanksgiving was a good one, Marianne. 🙂
Hope you had a lovely holiday. Thanks for being such a wonderful blogging pal and for sharing so many gorgeous images Robin.
Thanks, Kala. 🙂
Hope you had a wonderful turkey day! I love the picture of the lily – did you add some sort of special treatment to it to give it that soft look?
Hope your turkey day was a good one too, Karma. 🙂
I used a light version of the Orton Effect to achieve that soft look on the lily photo. I took the photo during the golden hour near sunset. Since the lighting was so nice, I left that alone and just added the slight blur.
Hope your Thanksgiving day went well.. and as a commenter not a lurker…(lol) thank you for your thanks…It’s just great to drop by. (there’s a heck of a lot of Thanks in there!! 😀 )
as usual you have wonderful photo’s to show, esp the Lily, glorious colour..
We’ve been threatened with snow forecast blanketing the whole of Britain, so I’ll probably be sitting here with a bright red nose next time I drop by!! Brr..
lol, Pen! Yes, there were a lot of thanks in your comment.
We have snow in our forecast tomorrow but it’s only a slight chance. I thought for sure we’d see some of the white stuff by now (we usually do).
Hope you had a nice holiday! We did have our first snow yesterday — oh boy, here we go, Winter : )
Thank you, BATR. Winter is surely here…
