You Are Thanksgiving
You are a bit of a homebody who enjoys being in the company of people you love.

It doesn't take a lot to make you happy. You're enjoying life as it is. You have many blessings in your life, and you are grateful for each one.

You believe that life is about what you *do* have. You feel like you have enough of the good stuff.

What makes you celebrate: Family, friends, and the changing of the seasons. At holiday get togethers, you do best as: The host of the party on a holiday, you're the one most likely to: Spend so much energy preparing that it's a full time job.

In case you missed my other weekend posts ...

Photo Hunt: Reflections

Love the web, but poor little lady bug. Great mutterings too!

Momisodes said...

You always have great mutterings. I like reading yours.

My results said I'm Easter!
"You are an optimistic, hopeful, and genuinely sweet person.
Sensitive and affectionate, you are easily touched.
You love nature, animals, and anything cute or cuddly.
For you, every day is a new chance - no matter what happened yesterday.

What makes you celebrate: Almost anything. You love most holidays and celebrations.

At holiday get togethers, you do best as: The peacemaker. You can prevent any squabbles that might break out.

On a holiday, you're the one most likely to: Remember to include everyone"

This was fun!

Very nice photo of the spider web. You can see the intricacy of the design when you enlarge the photo. I enjoyed your "Thought for Today" too!

Good Morning, Virginia,

2. Shadow :: sometimes scary
3. Database :: lots of facts
4. Expression :: facial
5. Boss :: Someone to fight in computer games
6. Baby :: Grandbabies are the best!
7. Mystic :: folklore
8. Kate :: kiss me
9. Boobies :: extinct birds :P
10. Raid :: goodbye bugs
Hope you have a lovely day!

Love the spider web photo! Very neat!

Karen said...

I love these!!

Spit it out!::Talk already!!
Kate:: and Ally
Boobies::the girls

I came up as the holiday Easter--I'm supposedly "an optimistic, hopeful and genuinely sweet person." I'm also the peacemaker at family gatherings and am most likely to include everyone. I'm supposed to like everything cute and cuddle.

Parts of this seem true, but other parts don't...I've never considered myself sweet and cuddly!

Raven said...

I was thinking about doing this and wondering wether I could squeeze it in this week and then I saw that people were doing it right here in the comments, so...

1. Spit it out :: chewing gum
2. Shadow :: government
3. Database :: Eeek computer stuff
4. Expression ::emotion
5. Boss :: Never have to have one again! Yippee
6. Baby :: Bringers of joy
7. Mystic ::Hildegard von Bingen
8. Kate ::me, Blanchett
9. Boobies ::blue feet
10. Raid ::roaches

Love the spider web photo. Just beautiful.

Michelle said...

Mine is Easter. I just love that time of year. Thanks for sharing.

Actually you have posted 60 posts in 30 days. Really, Virginia, I don't know how you manage three blogs on a daily basis as I have trouble maintaining one blog. You amaze me when it comes to your talent and writing ability.
