the homes are full of symmetry: siding, architecture

Thoroughly Poetic and Thankful Thursday #50

 Today we join Two  SPOLED CATS 

Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.

Here is our inspiration

This picture took lots of thought

We are thankful for the low prices we pay for Regular 
gasoline; however, we have no where to go!!

Things that make me smile
Rick the owner of Seaboard Café has such fun critters sitting  around the café and hanging from the walls.

Beautiful festive centerpieces for the tables.

Happy Tasty Tuesday puppy tails


In this time of doing 'nuttin', we have started going to Wegmans on
Monday or Tuesday as an Outing, yes we are easily entertained.!!
Last week, we were delighted to happen upon a freshly (still warm) baked
loaf of Orange Cranberry Bread. when we arrived home we each had a slice with coffee.
What a treat!!!
We also decided to treat ourselves to some Egg Nog.  
Neither of us have had any IN YEARS.
Upstate Farms has 2 flavors original and Premium.
Original is very good so I expect we'll be forced into trying Premium soon.

Awww Monday Trekking with Animals


Hosted by Comdey Plus

Saturday December 12, we took a trekked around a section of 

Raleigh called Historic Oakwood

Homes in the oldest part of the area are from the Victorian age
Many have been restore to their glory. All of the architecture is amazing.

They have a candlelight tour that started Dec 12-27, 2020; however,
we went during the day. For the next week or so I'll show several views of the homes including the one above that was at the start of the tour.
While we were trekking we saw lots of pups who asked their
peeps to take them on the trek too.

Today the first house in the tour that delighted My Mind's Eye
was this one. I think they all had themes some were obvious other subtle
This Theme is
Each bear was dressed festively and they were every where.
I hope they take the bears in at night...
The horse hitch in the bottom right was especially eye catching
