Thankful Thursday and Happy Thanksgiving November 24, 2022


I am so thankful for the pilgrims who were 
so brave to sail on the Mayflower.
The Mayflower was an English ship 
that transported a group of English families,
 known today as the Pilgrims, 
from England to the New World in 1620.
Such courageous people.
Description: The First Thanksgiving 1621,  published 1932. 
Pilgrims and Natives gather to share meal.
Creator: Ferris, Jean Leon Gerome, 1863-1930, Artist

For many Americans, the Thanksgiving meal
 includes seasonal dishes such as roast turkey
 with stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes
 and pumpkin pie. 
The holiday dates back to November 1621, when the newly arrived Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians gathered at Plymouth for an autumn harvest feast, an event regarded as America’s “first Thanksgiving.” 
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Thankful Thursday November 10, 2022

I am so thankful for my sweet and caring husband.
We heard a bird hit our dining room window and
he went outside immediately and found the
little Chestnut Chickadee. He held it in his
hands for awhile and then brought it inside
so we could put it on the counter under 
my kitchen strainer. It stayed there recovering
for a bit and then Russell took it outside and
it happily flew away! 
Russell has done this many times even with
a large California Acorn Woodpecker!

Russell is my hero!
Thanks Brian for Thankful Thursday!
