Unseasonably Warm

As I mentioned previously,
we had a very warm
Thanksgiving for
Minnesota.

We (well, 2 of us)
were called to the outdoors.
Another beautiful sunset
was in full bloom.


Not wanting to waste the warmth
of the night,
we opted to have a fire.


The extremely dry pine needles provided
us with our own fireworks.









The 'boy' and dog enjoyed each others company.
(Hard to see Max in the dark but he is there)!



A nice time to reflect on
our blessings.  No coats needed on a
November night was one of those blessings!


 
 
It was a good night.

Hey, Jill, I've been meaning to grab your button but don't see the code for it. Could you email me the code for your button? I'll put it on my blog roll :-)

No coats on a November night - my goodness is that usual?
It's quite cold here but that could just be the wind chill factor as it is very windy.
Looks like you really enjoyed your evening. :)

Dear Jill,

I love dropping by here everyday to see your beautiful photos and read your lovely blog! We've been warmer than usual here in California, too, but not as unusual as your temps have been!

Your sunset and toasty warm fire are just beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing with us!

Blessings,
Donna

We got a bit of a chillier temp today, around 40, but it was sunny and really was a nice day.

Love how you spent the evening. Fires are so comforting. :)

Janice@GypsyFarmGirl said...

Please send some of your warm air to Texas...please! My hands and feet are freezing.
On a bright side, our burn bans have been lifted, so we can now set outside by a fire! Hmmm, why didn't we do that this weekend? Glad yall had a great time!

Farm Girl said...

Wow that is amazing. We had to have coats.
I am sure though, once the cold comes it is there to stay and stay.
Enjoy your heat. :)
