F is for…
I (Sincerely, Emily) have a great group of friends, so F is for Friendship.
Happy Thanksgiving to those of you out there celebrating today.
I (Sincerely, Emily) have a lot to be thankful for this year. I am thankful to be here to see one more day. Some days it has been very hard to be thankful for anything, but those moments have passed fairly quickly and I am So happy to be alive and doing so well. I find that I am thankful every day for so many thing. When I begin to get edgy or frustrated I just put myself back into place when I look at what surrounds me: fantastic husband, beautiful gardens, furry cats, a roof over my head, and the ability to be up and about and able to do things.
Here are a few of our past Thanksgiving posts for you to enjoy:
D seems to be a hard one for me. I have been going through my photos and nothing that is remotely close to “D” is popping out. I did find a really great D in there.
My neighbor/friend that loves playing with wood made some beautiful walnut tops for the new reception area at our local Senior activity center. I have been in and out of his garage a million times while he was working on them. That walnut sure smelled good.
I had gone with him once when he needed to see how things fit and the pieces were beautiful then, but WOW they look great finished and in place. So, this is the perfect D. D is for desk.
You can also see some other things that he has made.
So, as I am typing this… I remembered another photo I have that works. D is for datura. This datura was a volunteer in the middle of one of the walkways in my garden. Full sun and simply beautiful! I would give it a drink when I watered the vegetables. All those blooms tells me that it was really happy there.
C is for…
C is for…
The big C that pops into my (Sincerely, Emily) mind is Cat! But since I highlighted my love for black cats last Sunday, I thought I would move onto other C-things.
C is for…
I plan to chat about more C-things this coming Thursday.
When you think of the letter “C”, what pops into your mind?
A is for…
Well, apple, of course. Here’s my (Alexandra) recipe for a quick and delicious breakfast, with a pertinent post from the archives. The picture is from my late lamented wild apple tree, cultivar unknown, victim of blight.
And also, Alexandra. (Yes I cut my own bangs. Also the bangs of every doll I owned. There are ALL crooked.)
Yes, A is for Apple. I Sincerely, Emily, think we must have all had the same cardboard alphabet books when we were growing up!)
What is A for in your part of the world?

High school reunions, homecoming, Veterans Day. A time to honor the past, and our lost ones.
Last week I (Alexandra), attended my high school reunion. Since it was a weekend for remembering, I finished the trip at the beautiful graveyard near the house where I grew up. Some people had many remembering them, but some were waiting for me to acknowledge with a pebble that the departed ones are worth remembering, even by strangers.
I (Sincerely, Emily) am remembering my Dad. He would have been 83 this past week.
