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!

Wonderful beach photos, and that moon shot! I woke up early and thought of you and that group you're having for dinner today. I wondered if you were putting that turkey into the oven about now, 4:30 my time, 5:30 your time. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Eileen.

Love y’alls shadow shot. Looks like you had some companionship...and the moon is so pretty. I have never been able to get a good moon shot. I wanted to tell you for ages I have linked you to my Facebook page so al of my friends can see your beautiful shots. Was supposed to be in Still Pond and Chesterton this holiday, but sadly my back is not allowing me to travel these days. I am already missing my 52 year old daughter. It is just not the same here in this quiet house with just Bud and me. Happy Turkey Day to you and all.

J said...

Absolutely stunning in sparkling blue! A real respite in the midst of our dark, gloomy days as we approach winter! - yuck!
May I suggest a few more things to add to your list of "thankfulness?"
1) your REMARKABLE talent behind the camera!
2) the humble way you present your work
3) the warm welcome you give everyone who comes here to feast their eyes!

Sorry to be late commenting. We had company over the holiday and then I got sick so I'm just now getting around to commenting on GF - These are wonderful. I love that first shot. I enjoy going to the beach though I seldom get to go so I always love to see Ocean and Beach shots like these. Those were wonderful things to be thankful for.
