'Zoe' (in memoriam)


  1. Lots of wonderful thankful things. I'm most thankful that Ms. Zoe sent Angel to you. You needed Angel.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday, Carol. Big hug to you and lots of scritches to Angel. ♥

  2. That apple orchard sounds delightful and we've never had cider donuts, they sure sound good. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  3. Cider donuts?! I love donuts, but have never heard of a cider donut - definitely have to get to New England!

  4. Hello,

    The barn is pretty. The donuts sound yummy. I am glad Angel can go with you on the car rides, she is a cute companion. Take care and enjoy your day! Have a happy weekend!

  5. Nothing like fall in New England. My favorite season.

    LOL - I went to school in Ipswich... Suffolk England that is!!! They grow lots of apples there, so I am guessing there is a connection way back... YAM xx

  7. Ahh Dad speaks of the joys of going to an orchard where they press and cook and make the delight of the apple known

  8. I hope you make some nice food with the apples. I've never had cider donuts either.

  9. such a lovely gratitude list, and I can just catch the scents of apples and cider:)

  10. Your list is uplifting, and someday i want to try a cider donut.

  11. The donuts sound so yummy. Beautiful fall photo.
