My World this Week

Lavender love...
It has been so cold here, if left outside the turkey would freeze its' giblets!  A below zero wind chill over the weekend was just way too early for me... and I like colder weather!

Today is my "little at a time" sprucing up, dusting, polishing, and generally getting the house ready for Mrs. Christopher's family to join us in our Thanksgiving feast day.  I was so happy to hear they would be coming again this year.  Wednesday is my cooking ahead and pie baking day.  Thursday is for giving thanks, feasting... and a long nap.  :)

So welcome to my world, this time over the past two weeks.

Watching
God's morning paintbrush...

Reading
Christmas Goudge, finished reading Pilcher (enjoyed very much), perusing A Primitive Place magazine

Bliss
Morning out thanks to a Starbucks' gift card.  :)

Corners

Preparing the Thanksgiving table
Leaf added, favorite Autumnal runner placed, pine wood polished...

After the Storms
Hardly a leaf on a tree...

Her Fluffiness
Stalking squirrels

Acting squirrel-y

Love your pictures. Of course my favorites are of Miss fluffiness. But all are appreciated. Hope your Thanksgiving is happy and healthy. Cecile

How sweet the lavendar arrangement. Her fluffiness is so cute standing looking out the window. It was cold (frigid) and wet here in my corner of Texas yesterday. Have a blessed and happy Thanksgiving with your loved ones. Sharon D.

I like the way you capture the light coming into your home, the light of a sunrise, and the light of a leafless group of trees against the winter sky. The photos definately put me in the mood and mindset for Thanksgiving. Thankful for you, Miss Brenda, and your blog!

And that is just the way to spend the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. I accomplished some similar things, though I
also had a nice visit with my sister. Victoria will not allow a surprise attack of squirrels. Have no fear.

All of these photos are a) beautiful, b) heartwarming, c) cozy-feeling-inducing (sorry, I couldn't think of a single adjective), or d) all of the above. But I think my favorite is the sunset. God does such glorious work in His skies!

Glad you liked Pilcher. I need to start into it for re-reading it this year. The Goudge book sounds good. Maybe I will interlibrary loan that next year......
