Oh December!

December, you've crept up on me and I'm not ready for you so soon. I know I said I wouldn't post until mid December, but when I started putting my Christmas header and images on the sidebar, I just had to add some kind of cute holiday image.

This is an old image I've jazzed up using my Pixlr app. I think it's added a bit more depth to this lively image of cats and dogs dancing 'round the Christmas tree.  I'm going to try and stay in a Christmasy mood by not watching the news any more, it's just more than I can stand.

I'll be here dancing with my cats 'round my own Christmas tree!

Thanksgiving 2016

I am very thankful that I was home the day these two swans showed up on our neighborhood lake.  I'm guessing they're the same ones that were here last year. They must be migrating from somewhere up north and have decided that our little lake is the perfect place for them to rest up for a few days before continuing on their trip south.

And just like that, an ordinary day becomes extraordinary when a pair of trumpeter swans shows up.  Sometimes I have to take a step back and be thankful for what I have right here, right now...

We'll be celebrating Thanksgiving on Thursday and then I'll be busy with the final rush of Christmas shoppers, so I'll be taking a break away from here for awhile.

I want to thank each and every one of you for visiting me throughout the year!
Your comments are always enjoyable. I'll try and make sure 
I get over to visit your blogs as soon as possible.
I'll see you mid-December!
