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. cabbage Dec 2012

Here are a few of our past Thanksgiving posts for you to enjoy:

Last week I struggled with finding photos for D. I could think of a lot of “D” things, just didn’t have photos of them…

This week was a bit easier. Elder has been on my mind because I started working (with a friend) on a presentation for Herb of the Year on Elder for the local Herb Society back in September of 2012. So that “E” came easy to me and as I go through past photos, so good “E” photos popped out.

Experimentsexperiment 1aThis experiment did not go so well. I will post about it on Friday over at Sincerely, Emily.

Egg and eggplant sandwich (now I am hungry – they were so good!) I many of these from breakfast when the eggplant were growing in the garden.023What kind of “E” things come to mind for you?

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.228

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.

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.
