This might be a strange thing to be thankful for
but I'm thankful for Thank You notes.
I know when we do something for someone we do it because we want to
and don't expect any thing in return.
But when I get a Thank You note it warms my heart.
I've said this before but I keep the Thank You notes that I get
in a basket and once in a while I read them.
They always make me smile.
Some notes in my basket are from people I don't even remember.

This is a window in a house in town that is abandoned and has been
neglected since I've been walking past it.
In the picture you can see torn curtains at the window.

When I went walking this morning the temperature was 38 degrees and windy. It was a cloudy morning but later in the day the sun came out and it was a pretty day.
Today I saw a dead skunk in the middle of the road and it must have just gotten hit because the smell was really bad.
I walked all over town. Again today I didn't see anyone else out. While I was walking I tried to plan what I am going to say tonight when I give my testimony but nothing sounds quite right to me. I decided not to take any notes of what I will say but just say what comes to mind.
The town has put up Christmas wreaths on all the street lights on the main street and some Happy Holiday flags around.
I just can't believe that Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming up so soon.
Today I walked my usual 6.2 miles.

Since the weather was nice I figured I'd better take my car out for a run. My car doesn't do snow so I may not have that many more times to drive it before winter.
The annual cookie sale at the Drane House will be December 6, next Friday, and I was asked to bake Welsh Cookies again like I did last year. This afternoon I made two dozen of them. I need to make three more dozen. The cookie sale is a big thing around here and it doesn't take long for them to sell out. Here is link to a previous post from April of last year (hadn't moved up here yet) showing the Welsh Cookies.
Had a book on hold at the library and it was ready so went over to the library and picked it up. It's one for my book club and this time if I don't like it right away I'm not reading it.
In another hour we leave for church. We will be having pie for supper tonight. : )
Hope your day has been sunny and bright.
happyone : )
Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings,
turn routine jobs into joy,
and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.
