Giving Thanks

I just can’t bring myself to start decorating for Christmas yet .
I think we need to give a little thought to the next holiday first.
Time to think about what we are thankful for…
For our families and friends …
For our homes…
And praying God will send his blessings to all who were affected by the storms yesterday in the Midwest .
And praying for all the folks in the Philippians who are still waiting for help and rescue .
Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving !
And when that is past , bring on Christmas !

Fall in the Cottage Yard

I took some pictures in and around the yard a few days ago , The leaves have changed and the wind is blowing the fallen ones around ,it is cool and rainy today and really feels like fall .

As I walked to the mailbox I looked back over my shoulder at the house and noticed all the color in hill behind the house .
Bubba was enjoying chasing leaves while running on his lead,
My little winding country road .
This cool weather makes me want to light the fireplace and and snuggle up with a good book . Maybe a cup of hot cocoa  along side .
I love fall ! It is so pretty here in the Ozarks this time of year . This peak color only lasts for a short time so I need to enjoy it .
I hope you are enjoying fall where you are !
