Happy Thanksgiving!!

We are about to take off to Iowa to visit the family and celebrate Thanksgiving. It is a time for turkey, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie!  We had snow but it has melted nicely so I hope the roads are good. The temps around here went from freezing to 43 degrees Fahrenheit today.
There is so many things we are still thankful despite the fact that we do live in a terrible world.  Eph. 5 :20 "At all times and for everything giving thanks in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father."

 Made something for the granddaughter.
 These pumpkins will turn into pumpkin soup soon.
 Homemade applesauce without any sugar.
 At the Orchard.

 We had a few foggy days.
 Have you ever had Golden Milk?? It tastes great and it has it's health benefits.

 Sometimes even these are ok! :)
 These are the kids of a friend from church. We went to the orchard together. The kids had fun!
 I finished putting together the quilt top I got from Alicia Paulson. I did placed two squares of the same together to "add interest" as it was mentioned. Now....let's see when I will put it all together.

 This is one of the best chicken curry I ever made. I got the recipe from Donal Skehan's via facebook.  It's called "My Best Chicken Curry."

 Some of my herbs drying. I added a few more herbs to the group later on.
 Ready to wash pumpkins!

Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving (for those here in the U.S.)!
Thank you for all your visits and comments in the last post!
Blessings to you!



  1. You have such a lovely selection of pumpkins and squashes. We don't get such a range here, mostly bland watery orange ones that are sold purely to carve for halloween and not that nice to cook - really fibrous and flavourless. we eat butternut a lot though, roasted (yum) soup (yum yum) with garlic and chilli and crusty bread (mega yum) and curried with lentils (yum yum). Lovely photos, thank you for sharing x

  2. Beautiful pictures.. Happy Thanksgiving...

  3. I enjoy the variety in your posts, Angela. Great photos!

    Safe travels! Happy Thanksgiving!

  8. Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving with your family Angela! That is an amazing display of pumpkins! The Golden Milk looks very strange what is it made of? Sarah x

    1. The golden milk is made with turmeric! It has some pepper also. I add some honey to it.

  9. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving in advance.
    Your grand daughters will love those bows.. so pretty.

  10. Beautiful country scenes, Angela - love all the delicious foods and sweet children playing together. Your quilt top is very pretty with all the calico prints and the little bows for your granddaughter are very sweet. Looks like you have been very busy! I hope you have safe travels and a lovely Thanksgiving with your family! xo Karen

  12. Thanks for sharing so much pretty, Angela. You just made me smile. Love the mushrooms, beautiful! I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and a safe trip!

  13. I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving with your family in Iowa! Your pictures are so beautiful and always bring peace to my heart. You have a gift my friend!

  14. I want to come to your house and check out the milk. I've read about the health benefits of Tumeric, but I've not gone beyond using it as a seasoning! Your pictures are so lovely and seasonal. I work so much in the fall that I feel like I miss the season. Your pictures immersed me in it!

  15. I always enjoy your posts Angela, as they are such a lovely little peek into your world! Sweet hairbows for the little one, interesting milk drink, fun at the orchard, and fog - yes, we've had fog here too! Those pumpkins look like they would do well in a pumpkin pie too! I hope you had a blessed and special Thanksgiving dear friend! Many hugs :)

  16. Beautiful photos Angela! Glad you enjoy your days. Un abrazo ♥♥
