is the time to catch your breath (last chance before Christmas and other December holidays) and give thanks for all
that you have. Or, "be grateful for what you don't want and don't have" which is one of my favorite phrases.
As Mary and I look forward to the Thanksgiving holiday, we also enjoy celebrating Veteran's Day as well. As a
veteran, I and my family know the sacrifices our men and women who serve our country make each and every day.

Happy Thanksgiving to each of you! We thank our reader, Renee, for sharing her beautiful porch.

Fall Porch Decorating In North Carolina
Front porches (back porches and screen porches too) enjoy November and love to be decorated and enjoyed.
Greet your family and friends with an inviting front porch. A freshly painted front door, colorful fall

One of the nicest gifts I ever received was the Kindle
I got last year. I have used it over and over again. It was a complete surprise to get it and I enjoy using it on the porch to read books, in the kitchen to look up recipes, while I am on the elliptical exerciser to watch painting videos and movies. It's easy to throw into my purse and take along with me.
I love my Kindle.
