Thanksgiving Skies

I am linking up with Skywatch Friday  and Good Fences
I hope you can join in on the fun and share your fence scenes and pretty skies.

HAPPY Thanksgiving everyone!

I am not sure who will be blogging today on Thanksgiving Day in the USA. But, I prepared this post in advance just in case. I wanted to say how thankful I am for my hubby, son and family. I am thankful for almost a year now (DEC 31st) being retired after working a total of 43 years full and a little part time included. I am thankful for a roof over my head, food on our table and all the simple pleasures in life that do not go unnoticed. I am also thankful for my blogging friends who visit and leave their wonderful comments. Blessings to you all!

Around the yard

I have a list below of memes I am joining for this week, and to save time I am doing one post for all. They are all fun memes to participate in...I hope you can join in with the fun  and check out some of the participating posts. Special thanks to all the wonderful host and their memes, I hope you have some time to check them out.

I am sharing some of my yardbirds and some Autumn trees and lakes scenes from our walks in our neighborhood. I do not have to go far to see the beautiful birds and pretty scenery it is just outside our door.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

"I am grateful for what I am and have. My Thanksgiving is perpetual." Henry David Thoreau

 Above are some of my yardbirds seen in the month of October. First row: Ruby Crowned Kinglet, White-throated sparrow and the Chipping Sparrow. Second row: Dark-eyed Junco, Pine Siskin on thistle sock, another Pine Siskin. Bottom Row: White-breasted Nuthatch, Downy Woodpecker, a stunned White-breasted Nuthatch that flew into my kitchen window.

The sweet Dark-eyed Junco, known as snow birds arriving in the winter months.

I love to the hear the White-throated Sparrow's song usually early in the morning or late in the day..

Hubby and I often take walks on the fireroad in our neighborhood and walks to our lake. The fall trees were gorgeous this year, so many pretty colors.

A colorful reflection on the lake.

The reds near sunset, gorgeous color and reflections. I hope you enjoyed my & hubby's images and post.  I appreciate your visits and nice comments. Thank you! Have  a happy day and new week ahead!
