happy thanksgiving!!

Thanksgiving preparations are well underway
as I look forward to hosting my family, this year.

Earlier this week while walking to my office
- and mentally making a shopping list

I noticed a splash of red - hanging on late in the season
grocery list can wait...

I pause for a moment at the dog park
- city dogs need a fenced-in area to run around in

And back to thanksgiving preparations
I reflect on the many things that I am grateful for

I would like to give a heartfelt thank you to
Theresa - aka TexWis Girl
not only for hosting Good Fences for the past few years,
but for gathering a warm and friendly group of bloggers,
- many of whom I think of as friends

Theresa - I will miss your insight and wit
you never failed to put a smile on my face
I wish you all the best!

And for everyone else - a very happy thanksgiving!
(whether you celebrate or not - because, feeling thankful is always a good thing...)

I'm joining TexWis for one last Good Fences


  1. hello, great fence shots. I love the dog park sign, very cute. Theresa will be missed, she is a wonderful friend in the blogworld. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day and the weekend ahead! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving Karen. I am so happy Tex brought us all together she is the best blogger out there with the biggest heart.. She will be missed. HUGS B

  3. You 'nailed' all our sentiments of Ms. T and her Good fences.

    I like the idea of a fenced in dog-run for the 'city' dogs. Great concept.

    Beautiful image -the first one is!!

    Happy Thanksgiving Karen.

  4. Karen, I wish you and your family and friends a very happy Thanksgiving today. Yes Theresa will be greatly missed for very many reasons and I'm hoping that you occasionally Will send us a post from her blog.

  5. thank you, dear karen. bless you and your family. may you continue to get 'away' as much as you can. i will miss the kind and sharing souls in blogland (this is very hard) and have enjoyed knowing you and seeing what you have shared with us. the world is better because of folks like you who appreciate beauty - whether city or country - and share joy.

  14. I really admire the thanksgiving you celebrate there… we are always depend on something and we can’t live without thanking, a way of reciprocation that brings people together. Love the bright red fall color there and nice to know the dog park where they enjoy there space.

    You are right with TexWis! We miss a blogger genuine, a nice buddy and understanding person.
    Best wishes on my behalf to her
