This week’s edition of Fav Foto Friday are some photos from Thanksgiving day. With the passing of my Mom almost a month ago (will be a month tomorrow), Thanksgiving this year was a little tough. Not that I am not thankful or grateful for all I have, but Mom had always been a huge part of all our holidays growing up and even as adults. I have been cooking Thanksgiving dinner for many years but not without a phone call (or five) to Mom every year with some quick question or reminder about how to do something or just to wish her a happy Thanksgiving. This year when those questions came up I was heartbroken all over again and ended up crying through the preparation of the rest of the meal…veggies à la tears were the featured dinner items this year.

Despite the lack of advice from Mom needed to cook the meal this year, it seems that dinner was a success, as compliments were given and tummies were full. I am grateful to have had a beautiful, golden browned turkey, with all the fixin’s, whose aroma filled the house all morning. I am grateful for little ones who manage to enjoy the day with the simple pleasure of playing silly games with family members. I am grateful for having a home filled with family and friends and the beauty of flowers to decorate and make for a pleasant home environment. And I am grateful to have all my critters who provide me with so much enjoyment and love.

This year’s holidays may not be the happiest occasions  per se, but I am grateful for the many things in my life…family, friends, love, support, animals, and all the things that make life good.

I hope everyone has enjoyed a blessed Thanksgiving this year!

This week’s edition of Fav Foto Friday is another photo from one of favorite pastimes since I got my ‘big girl camera,’ which is taking photos of the birds out at my bird feeders. Who knew bird watching could be so much fun?!? I find it so much fun being able to zoom in and see these little ones up close. I love being able to see the expressions on their faces as they stop by for a quick snack. I especially love these littles ones, the tufted titmouse. They have the cutest little faces!

This week’s edition of Fav Foto Friday happens to fall on a “Friday the 13th” and it is also my birthday, so my photo selection is made solely for my own amusement. It is a photo I took at one of my bird feeders this summer. Although it probably isn’t technically cool, it amuses me and looks to be just a clash of colors and feathers. Who knew that bird feeders and a camera could be so much fun and hours of amusement for me?
