30 Days of Thankful Layouts … Cont.

So, I am continuing my countdown of 30 Days of Thankful,,,I am running behind but it’s all good, no worries!

#3  Thankful for my special Kitties.  Spider has been with us for 11 years.  He is fat and still sassy.  He loves to curl up in Kents lap while watching TV in the evenings and he enjoys just hanging out in the back yard on the deck by the pool.  He loves our other cat, Echo and likes to cuddle with her when she decides to come inside for the night.

Echo Was a stray cat that we acquired about 5 years ago.  She is so sweet and petite.  I am almost afraid to pick her up sometime because she is so petite.  Echo is usually an outside cat but she had an accident back in the year and now walks on a very shaky back leg.  Since the accident, she has been staying inside more and has bonded more with Spider.  They make the cutest couple!

#2    Beautiful Sunsets

Over the past 11 years, I have been blessed with the ability to travel to many places that I thought that I never would.  That in itself, is something to be thankful for, but along the way I have seen some of the most beautiful sights.  Sunsets over the Ocean are some of the most breathe taking!  This particular photo was taken in New Orleans looking up the Mississippi river at the Greater New Orleans bridge.  It was the evening of the first day of our cruise with our two oldest grand children and we had just left the Port of New Orleans and had rounded the bend in the river.  I looked back and had to capture this beautiful sight.

November – 30 Days of Thankful

Ahhh…November is a wonderful time of the year!  Feel that crisp cool air?  Smell that rustic pumpkin, falling leaves kind of smell?  Take it all in and just breathe.

I was recently posed with a challenge for the month of November and while I am a bit late at starting it, I am making a promise to myself to, at least, try to keep it as best that I am able.  The challenge… 30 Days of Thankful.  This challenge is to post something that I am thankful for everyday for 30 days.  I am changing it up a bit though and it actually makes it a bit more challenging for me.  I plan to post a layout about the things that I am thankful for.  I only hope that I can come up with a photo that best describes exactly what that is!

As I said, I am a bit behind, but I hope to catch up and if not….I’ll get them all in here as I can.  These are not in any particular order….

#1   I am Thankful for PUMPKINS!  Not just the pumpkins but more of what they represent…Autumn, cooler weather and , of course, pumpkin pie!
