It's Friday again, so that means another Friday Foto Friends!
I have so enjoyed the month of November and really am sorry to say good-bye! The colors have been so pretty and each day as I am out and about, I just give thanks to God for the beauty of the earth. I know there are much more beautiful places around the world to see the colors, but I am content with where we are and what I can see.
These are fallen leaves! Don't they somewhat look like flowers?
I love the way the tree looks against the bright blue sky.
I pass this house at least once a day. During the summer, this tree is very ordinary looking and really, I think it should be shaped up! But, when Fall comes, I always look forward to the change that is made because of the colors! It's amazing what a little color will do for us!
The sunrise was so pretty … it's a shame the neighbors' roof gets in the way!
Across the back yard, I love the warmth of the November brown, blue and pink colors.
Annie is so cute as she waits for us to finish dinner and guards her squeaky toy. Annie is a sweet dog, very well-behaved, but the last two nights she has awakened me in the wee hours of the morning to go outside! No! I am moving the water bowl before 7 tonight!
For several months, I have tried many times to make a cup of coffee, only to see this message looking back at me. Some days it worked, others it didn't.
I didn't mind following the instructions to clean the needle, but after having repeated the process about 5 or 6 times, I had enough. Although I ordered a regular coffee brewer for back-up, I still like being able to get one cup from this Keurig, plus I have so many K-cups on hand that would go to waste. So in my caffeine craving
raving mind, I decided it was time to call Keurig. Why not? This message was clearly inviting me to do so. After explaining my problem, I was very surprised to hear from the lady in customer service that there had been problems with the series I had and it had been discontinued. Therefore, she would be happy to send me a new coffee maker, along with a couple of boxes of K-cups! What do you think about that? It arrived three days later!
I am so impressed and delighted with the coffee!
Speaking of coffee, here is a photo of a few of the Wednesday breakfast guys (and one of the wives). This isn't all the gentlemen who attend, and in particular, the man who began this tradition a few years ago is not in the picture because he is having a really hard time going through chemotherapy and other treatments for cancer. The cancer is a result of Agent Orange which he got during the Vietnam War. We have been friends with Wilson for many years and he is one of the sweetest men I have known. I hate cancer! And I hate it that he has it as a result of his faithful service to our country.
I finally made myself get up in the attic which involved several up and down trips and boy, was I sore that evening. I'm going to do a little more … maybe … but I am satisfied with what I have. Just seeing the lights and nativity bring me joy.
Some gifts underneath should make a difference.
Tenley met Santa and looks like they got along just fine!
And finally, one last look at Thanksgiving from six years ago.
