Y is for…

Count your blessings, name them one by one…

DSCN0245 SIGNIt’s back — and almost at the end! After a hiatus of several months, I’m following through on my promise to use Thursday posts to focus on thankfulness — and instead of counting blessings, I’ve challenged myself to come up with them alphabetically.  (You can find the rest of the posts in this series here.)

Welcome to Y week.

 

Y is for Yellow, the color of pollen for this happy bee. Note the full pollen sac

It isn't the Yellow Rose of Texas, but a yellow cactus bloom in the Arizona springtime is a close second.

Y is also for yell.  Most of the time, we don’t wish for children to be yelling but when it comes to a newborn, a lusty yell is a happy sign of health.   (Sneaking in a Time Warp Tuesday / Throwback Thursday pic here, too!)
Bonus: EB has yellow trim on his “going home outfit.” 

 

 Y is for yardage…

I have plenty of hobbies — definitely more than I have time to do on a weekly basis — but nevertheless, I was bit by the quilting bug a few years ago.  I can’t tell you how much yardage is in this quilt that I made after MM & Rapunzel were married. (Answer: a lot!)

Please share some things for which you are thankful…

  1. Karen, that image of the bee with full sac is wonderful. And the yellow flowers are so cheery. Especially when there’s still a couple of feet of snow outside my window.
