November Thoughts

Hello!  We are here to wish you a happy rest of Sunday and we are sorry to be so late posting our November thought.

Today my fellow blogger Teresa from
http://www.run-a-roundranch.blogspot.com  sent me an early letter telling me my name was drawn for her October giveaway.  Its a beautiful little hand-drawn sparrow .
I love the sparrow because I love the old spiritual His Eye is on the Sparrow and I am anxious to have it hanging in my house
So my thought for today is how lucky we are to have good friends , our fellow bloggers that we become close to and love.  And being watched over by the eye who watches the sparrow.
If you don't visit Tex-Wis Girl at the above url, do so and you will find out just how much fun it all is there and how to enter her giveaway.
Jo, Stella and Zkhat


  1. you are so sweet! :) i am listening to 'the eye of the sparrow' right now. :)

  2. Lucky you to be the recipient of one of TexWGirl's drawings. They're very special. And I agree, our blogging friends--two and four legged--add so much to our lives.

  3. I'm so glad that you won the sparrow!

    I also love your "welcome" mat. Did you make it?

    1. Yes, KB, I made the welcome banner as a gift for my son and his wife. The photo of it is just laying across a chair, but now it hangs in the entry o f their new home and it looks wonderful there. They like it and so do I!


  4. Congratualtions!
    It is pawesome!
    Kisses and hugs

  5. Congratulations Jo!
    Greetings, RW & SK

  6. Congrats on your beautiful drawing from Theresa. I found your blog through her's. I am temporarily based in MN and enjoying the west central area. Love your critters. I miss being away from mine.

  7. Congratulations on winning such a lovely prize. When I was a child, sparrows were about the most common bird in the UK, but now they are seen far less frequently. No-one is sure exactly why, but the lesson, surely, is cherish your sparrows.
    Cheers, Gail.

  8. You won a giveaway of special value, congrats to lucky you!
    I like the welcome banner, handcraftet gifts are always of special value.
    And I am happy that I found your blog some month ago :-)

    Liebe Grüße,

  9. We saw you had won and we were so pleased for you. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly
