Thankful Thursday ~ Nature Bats Last


Today I am thankful for a three day getaway with my husband.  Also thankful that I haven't gotten this awful flu that is so bad right now.  I think I wash my hands about ten times a day!  I hope you all are well.  It looks like winter has finally decided to arrive so here we go with the cold, dreary days, but I'm hoping the sun shines for most of them.  My granddaughter is safely back at college and the others are back to school.  Christmas was different this year, but in the after all, I am blessed...and thankful for my family.   The above instagram photo was taken last week during a walk in the park with my husband.  Something we are going to have to do more of even if the weather disagrees.  I've shown this truck before from the front- with trees growing out of the motor.

I am glad that you do not have the flu. That you are going on a three day weekend with your hubs.

Also the weeds will win.

Enjoy your three day weekend with your husband. I wonder how long the truck has been there, as nature's captive. Neat pic!

I hope your getaway is WONDERFUL. Love that photo - and the quote.

Weeds will fill the gaps, rust will continue, and you two will have a great time together.And to know family have arrived safely, either going or coming, a huge piece of thankfulness these days.

I go out every day, it is always fun to have someone along. I normally go alone.

That is a neat photo of the old truck and the quote is just perfect with it. Yep, the weeds always win. Enjoy your getaway!

A three day weekend sounds lovely. I LOVE the old pick up truck; what a treasure. We've had the flu going in our area too....I'm just getting over a cold and am thankful thats all it was. Have a great weekend

Michelle said...

I adore this truck. I always think finding something like this is such a treasure. We have a lot of flu around here and I use tons of Germ-x at work! Thanks for linking up today and have a great weekend!

I love special times away with my Honey too.
I sure need to get out and snap a few...thanks for the encouragement that even weeds can be pretty.

I'm with you on the hand washing - I've been extra vigilant!

I started out the day in a tee shirt yesterday and woke to below-freezing temps this morning with a decent amount of sleet!

These days, I'm especially thankful for God's grace and mercy. Stay warm and healthy!

The title of the post is perfect for that photo, which I love.

Amazing photo. Nature certainly has the last word! Hope you don't get the flu. It's rampant here in East Tennessee.

That is a cool picture, Terri. How nice that you took a walk in the park. I find that the park is a wonderful place where nature is all around me. Stay well. I was sick about two months ago, and the cough lingered on for sooooo long.

Bad flu years when the shot isn't very effective freak me out. At the grocery store the other night SO many people were hacking. I kept telling the boys - don't touch anything!!

I'm glad you came over and gave me a thunk in the head :)
