Happy Thanksgiving

We were blessed with another Indian Summer day.
I sat outside with the birds.
The pair of Yellow Shafted Flickers have returned to the suet.

Two Cabbage Whites emerged in the house this morning.
I released them when the temperature reached 55 degrees.

Today we welcome Sagittarius.
Happy Birthday to those born under this sun sign.

I said a prayer today.
I read a story
and listened to music.
 We baked a pie and made ants on a log.
We drank eggnog after a dinner of mashed potatoes and peas.

We packed our picnic basket.
We are taking our pumpkin pie and ants on the log with us.
We are leaving in the morning to see Swans.
Our cameras are packed.

May you and yours have a very blessed Thanksgiving.
I am off to see Trumpeter Swans.
Oh joy.
