A Happy Thanksgiving!


 New to my yard this fall, a Pine Sisken.



"Now, our God, we give you thanks
and praise your glorious name."
I Chronicles 29:13

I'm thankful for so many things, and you, dear bloggy friend,
are one of them!

    1. Thanks, Martha~! I'm so glad to have met you here!

      I had to look up the sisken! I thought it was a goldfinch at first! You'd think with 14 cats out there, I wouldn't have any birds at all! ha. They seem to be more interested in mice than birds right now. lol....

      Happy day tomorrow. Hope you enjoy yourself!

  6. My windows are clean. Now I can take pictures of my feathered friends too. Oh yes, and those "fur-birds" too, as my friend calls them.

    My baking is talking to me now. (The batter said "HI!" on the inside of the can.) Do you think I'm losing it? (I can't post pictures now unless I upgrade Picasa. I am out of space...)

    1. Never mind, I am losing it. Or maybe it's already lost.

    2. You are the third person that has said that about Picasa recently. If you reduce the size of your photos, that will solve the problem. And you can set your downloading from your camera to a smaller size to begin with, to prevent it from happening again. Hope that makes sense!...and it's easier to email photos, too, that way.

      Happy day tomorrow!

    3. So do I delete from the Picasa folder and then reload photos?

      Delete
    4. Okay, I'm working on it. I got the picture to load.

    5. No, I don't think you delete them! You will loose them! Linda in Canada told how to do it on her blog. You could ask her. Look at her posts...it was about 2 weeks ago.

  13. Well Betsy, I certainly have to Ditto! those thoughts...both yours - being thankful for you - and the scripture, which of course, is truth no matter what else is going on around us. May you and yours be blessed with a special memory-making filled day of gratefulness. Thank YOU for all the ways you inspire and brighten days for so many of us. XO

  16. Have a great holiday
    And if leftovers do get boring your way
    Sure plenty of kitties will join the fray
    And make short work of them at your bay

    1. As I picked the carcass free of scraps
      all the kitties arose from their naps
      and gathered around my feet
      and cried, "Give me something to eat!"
      hahaha
