It's time to share gratitude and joy for "I like Thursdays" sponsored by LeeAnna!
Things I loved this week:
The PBS Nature program on Woodpeckers! It was fascinating and I can't recommend it enough! I have always been fond of these birds but I never realized the diversity of the breed!
Winter is around the corner and we even had some snowflakes Tuesday night. I find this time of year restful after a season of working the garden. I've got my provisions set up for the next few months: lots of sewing projects and a stack of books.

Time to share things we like!

Our prompt this week was to discuss a Halloween costume that we remember fondly. I think my favorite thing was wearing a gown that had been my great-grandmother's. I think it was made of moire and through the years of dress-ups and costumes, the gown really took a beating. I'm rather sad now that it is gone (my mother probably threw it out). When I think about it now, it was probably one of the factors that made me love old things.

Happy Thursday! Today bloggers share things we are grateful for as part of "I like Thursdays!" The event is hosted by Lee Anna at Not Afraid of Color. Go visit her and other bloggers!!!
Well the Phils beat the Braves (sorry Libby) and are now taking on the Padres (we lost one, won one so far). It's exciting baseball watching for sure! I was worried about what I would do without baseball to watch at night but I've already got a nice stack of books to read this winter. The one I'm looking forward to the most is The Wedding Dress Sewing Circle by Jennifer Ryan.

Greetings and welcome to this week's version of "I like Thursdays"!!!
Every week we post things we like or are grateful for and our hostess LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color shares our blog addresses. Visit her here to read more uplifting posts!
We came home Tuesday evening to some excitement in the neighborhood. There was a fire truck behind my neighbor's home. Calvin the cat had climbed a tree and couldn't get down!
It's been a rather uneventful week (except for Calvin's adventure) but I'm grateful for a week of peace as well.

It's Thursday and time to celebrate the good in life!
This week I'm grateful that Scout is doing much better. She saw the doctor on Wednesday and we are trying a week without the 6 pills/day to see how she does. She sure seems spunkier!

Today is "I like Thursdays" and time to share positive things on the internet! Our happy day is hosted by LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color and you are welcome to visit the other participating bloggers!
I'm grateful for the change of seasons this year. Usually I feel a little sad in the autumn but I welcome the cooler weather this year and we even have been getting a little rain!
First off, Scout is feeling better. When she started barking at squirrels this week, we realized it had been weeks since she has done that! It's a good sign!
And speaking of squirrels...
We love "squirrel tv"; we sit in the gazebo at our neighbors' house and watch the squirrels in her big tree. There's a new set of baby squirrels! The dogs don't ever notice the babies or kits in the tree but they sure love barking at the squirrels around the gazebo!
I always begin Autumn sewing with a bang because I rarely get to be in my sewing room in the summer. I have 3 tops done and will be taking them to my favorite machine quilter, Terri, on Sunday! I might even get a 4th top done beforehand! I haven't taken any photos yet but will share them later. I have a list of 15 kids to make quilts for this winter and I'm looking forward to using up more of my stash!
Wishing you a safe and happy weekend!
