This is our Giving Thanks - Day 8 - entry into "12 Days of Thanks Giving 2017 - ActiveRain Challenge" hosted by Debbie Reynolds.

 

Today is a day to look around and be thankful for the great weather we have here in Arizona (for the most part!).

 

 

 

With sunny or partly sunny days averaging 296 per year, and even though it can get hot in the summer - it's a dry heat!

 

 

 

Suzanne and I enjoy sitting outside in our back yard that backs up to a wildlife protected area that is home to woodpeckers, grackels, ground squirrels, rabbits, cardinals, quail and the list goes on.

 

We sip a glass of wine while our "friends" fly over or hop through the view fence and come over for a peanut, or two or three!

I can imagine that your part of Arizona is a wonderful place to winter.  I have not been there in summer, but I have always enjoyed my trips there in spring.

Those of us who live near wildlife areas are truly blessed.  I have spent a couple recent days relocating a couple from my yard back into their "natural" habitat.

I would love it out there in the summer, but prefer cold and snowy for winter. 

What is that adorable little critter? Looks like some kind of squirrel but I have never seen one with all the stripes.

Tony and Suzanne, good weather is always something to be thankful for! We too are moving into the drier and a bit cooler time of the year. I guess it's a chip munk in your photo? We don't have them here and the ones I remember from when I lived in Massachusetts had fewer stripes and no dots.

Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers - I can relate to this so much. Sometimes it is being one with nature and enjoy the simple things that bring us inner peace and joy.  Is that a squirrel in the photo?  I've never before seen one with those markings.

Being able to sit and enjoy nature and reflect and do nothing is a blessing. In fact, we need to put this kind of reflection in our schedules.
