Thankful Thursday

Roses and Dairy Queen are two of my favorites to be thankful for this summer and this barrel of roses with the flag was just the simple joy of the well as having a yummy peanut butter topped something or other. I'm also thankful for getting to hang out with my teenagers whenever I can, even on a cool, rainy day (that was last week.) I was planning a nice outdoor kind of thing, hoping to walk around some pretty gardens too, but we made the best of it, looked at some mall type stores, explored an Amish "barn" that was filled with little stores (they took lots of photos...even blueberry syrup!) and had a very good day together anyway (something more to be thankful for!) Now they are gone on their own summer vacation so I'm very thankful for a wonderful silly cat...who understands me.

Thankful Thursday

Bunnies seem to be abundant these days and we are always spotting little ones coming out of their little hidey places (their bower?)...a simple joy to watch and to be thankful for today. I usually see them around in the evenings while taking my walk, and there are also a few who seem to really enjoy the new grass my dad planted in his yard too (top photo.)

A thing of beauty is a joy forever.

Its lovliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep

A bower quiet for us, and a sleep

Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.
