Thanksgiving and Beyond...

Lots of leaves... tempted to jump in!
Hello Friends! Well, it's been an interesting week or so. Things both good and bad have been happening. I don't want to go into the bad, so I'll share the good things instead. 


Thanksgiving was nice! I appreciate you asking about it, Shannon. I shared a meal with Keith's lovely family, and after most people napped, Keith, Kyle and I went for a post meal walk. It's one of my favorite things to do... and it was a beautiful day out for walking, too. It was brisk, but sunny, and there were some nice clouds in the sky to make the photos interesting!


I also entered a photo of mine into a contest where the goal was to take a picture from a low angle of perspective. I got into the top 8 out of over 130 photos! Here it is...

Oh, but I jumped ahead. Here are some photos from Thanksgiving...






I also took a lot of photos before all the leaves dropped... I know I shared a few with you in the last post, but as there are basically no leaves left outside, other than in piles on the ground, these will most likely be the last ones...








I've also been keeping tabs on a little squirrel that I named Bun Bun. He somehow lost most of his tail, and so he looks a bit like a bunny now! Luckily, he's been gaining weight from all the maple seeds and acorns that he's been gobbling up. He's a real cutie!


He's just the cutest! I love him. He feels quite comfortable hanging out in our back porch area. I love finding him nibbling seeds on the back steps. Unlike the other squirrels, he doesn't have a long, bushy tail to keep the rain off of him, so he stays under the porch, or close to the tree when it's raining.
I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving, and are getting into the Christmas spirit. Even if you don't celebrate the holiday, it's definitely a time of year when our hearts seem to expand just a little more, and hopefully, we all share love just a little more readily... the world needs more love, doesn't it?

Hi Shari - your photos are beautiful as always - you've captured some stunning imagery. Well done on getting into the top 8 with another amazing photo. The roots pushing up through the pavement is quite poignant. It sounds like you had a very relaxing thanksgiving and bun bun is very sweet - and looks like he is getting quite chubby, which makes him all the cuter. I wonder what happened to his tail? I think you may have found yourself a little lodger :-)

Thank you, Shell! I think Bun Bun lost his tail by being in the road when a car drove by. There's an alley behind our place, that's actually a narrow road. Lots of squirrels and also cars on occasion. Not a good combo.

Yes, Thanksgiving was relaxing! I hope yours was, as well!
