Thanks and Giving Challenge

Blogger was acting up last night and I couldn't upload the graphics for my Thanks and Giving Challenge. So, today you are going to get a double dose.
Yesterday I was thankful for getting to spend time with my oldest grandson. Brandon and I visited the farm and then he came home with me for supper. After we ate, we played a game of Isolation and then three games of Superman Uno. We had a great time.

Today I am thankful for getting some things done that have needed doing for a while. It seems that time gets away from me and then I end up with a pile of work to do. I'm also thankful for a husband that is willing to lend me a helping hand.

I am always thankful for all of my online friends. Today I am especially thankful for Denise of Shortybear's Place and Mary of Isabella's Closet. Thank you Ladies.

Now for the giving. Today I'm going to give all of my readers two graphics - one for yesterday when I couldn't upload it:

And for today, this one:


Enjoy! Remember to check back tomorrow for another in my series of Thanks and Giving posts.

I wish all of my American friends a Happy Thanksgiving that's filled with the love of family and friends and the gift of laughter around their tables.

  2. Hello dear Mary:-) I'm finally taking the time to do a bit of visiting...today I was gone shopping with my mom for 5 hours and then when I came home I got right back into decorating. Now I'm pooped! lol It was so much fun to catch up on your last few posts...yes, Blogger has been a pain the last few days where uploading pictures is concerned. How wonderful that you got to spend time with your grandson...I can't wait to have grandkids, they do sound like fun! lol I've been told I should pick you up and cross the border to the States to go have Thanksgiving dinner with our American friends! hehe Wish we could!!! Take good care of yourself dear friend. xoxo

  6. Thanks for the holiday wishes, Mary. Hope your Thursday is blessed even though your Thanksgiving was celebrated in October. Thanksgiving should be celebrated every day anyway!

    Love and hugs,

  7. Lori,

    Mary's Writing Nook is my main blog. My Treasures to Me is where I post only occasionally and those are my personal stories. The cooking blog is shared by a few of us.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  10. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit today. I am baking rolls right now, and will put the turkey in to simmer all night long. Should smell really good by morning!

    I, too, wish you and Pea could join us for dinner tomorrow! Have a wonderful rest of the week.

  14. Mary,

    Thank you for sharing these lovely graphics with us! I'm glad you and Brandon had fun. Uno is a fun game. I don't think I've heard of Isolation.

    I can empathize about how the work piles up quickly! I'm also thankful for my husband who is willing to lend me a helping hand. Thursday I had two special helpers, Zach and Keely. :-)

    Hugs,
    Tina
