Happy Thanksgiving

25 Nov


This past week when my husband and I were out driving I spotted this turkey in a farm field and made my husband stop for a picture.  I’ve saved it for today’s post.

In our rural area we see a lot of interesting things made of hay bales.  Around Halloween farmers will take stuffed clothes and attach them to the outside of the bale  to make it look like someone was rolled up in it by the baler. 

At Christmas time farmers make huge snowmen out of the bales for decoration.  The most unusual hay bale art I saw was a tractor formed out of hay bales and then they sprayed it John Deere green to make it really look like a tractor.  Pretty cool!

In the past week I also had to dodge about a dozen wild turkeys crossing the road on the way to work.  It’s not the best photo but it shows the wild turkeys just the same.

May your day best blessed with the love of friends, family, words seasoned with kindness and bountiful food in a warm cozy home.

Happy Thanksgiving!  Jeanne

    Thanks Thomas! Are you planning on celebrating Thanksgiving in New Zealand? If not, I hope you find something to celebrate in your day.

      We don’t usually celebrate but there are groups of American expats who get together. It’s 75 and sunny today so it doesn’t quite feel like it either!

      We are off on our trip tomorrow as well so things have been hectic for the past few days. Have a great holiday season, I’m not sure how much computer access I’ll be having until we get back at the end of Dec.
