Count-enance

"I write according to the thoughts I feel.
When I think upon my God, my heart is so full of joy
that the notes dance and leap from my pen;
And since God has given me a cheerful heart,
it will be pardoned me that I serve Him with a cheerful spirit."
Franz Joseph Haydn

Lovely quote, lovely list of thanks. Your words and photos make me happy : )

Those apples do look like something from a fairy tale! Love the Austen quote, too - eat a slice of that wondrous pie for me, will you?

Leslie said...

P.S. Didn't make the metal heart - posted more info about it in comments...

Misty said...

yum! this post makes me happy!
my mom grew up in michigan and to hear her talk of changing leaves and visiting apple mills... fall is the only time of year i think to live "up north" would be enchanting!! those apples are lovely and i can only imagine biting them fresh! here in texas we have avocados and acorn squash all set out in the markets, and it makes me scratch my head a bit! :)
i love the sea glass/hands photo. lovely indeed.
and austen. mmmmmm

I DID watch the Sherlock Holmes on Mystery last night. I liked it a lot. How about you? (Loved Watson - my Emily tells me he'll be playing Bilbo in the Hobbit movie. Wasn't sure about Sherlock - his hair put me off a bit - but I think he was okay.) Thought they did a good job of modernizing it without losing the SH touches - and I loved the humor...

Ummm, you DID ask for a full page review, didn't you? ; )

Jodi, I love the quote so much. I want to be cheerful, too!
I love your lists.

Nancy said...

Please continue to dare to be different. And to quote Jane Austen. Then I will be a happy woman.

Jodi said...

Leslie, yes, watched it; yes, loved it. Can't wait for The Hobbit, too! :)

Jodi said...

Misty, yes, autumn up-north is enchanting. I don't think I could live anywhere that didn't have this season.

Kerrie said...

lovely, as always. I love your wind-swept treasures! Blessings!

Delightful as always. Those apples are crazy!

Claudia said...

Emily Young said...

I love the Jane Austen quote! : ) And sea glass... how I wish we had sea glass here....

Cheryl said...

The apple pie looks dark. Is it the black apples that provide the colour? I've not seen black apples before. Intriguing. Love the pumpkin.

Rayanne said...

You are so faithful to post your thankfulness every Monday.
It's comforting to know you will be posting happiness/thanksgiving every week. I always look forward.
Thanks friend!

Lovely pictures. Each one seemed to take me off into another direction. I need a little distraction these days.......

deb said...

I can't seem to get enough of the fall colours this year. Ontario is similar to Michigan in that regard. It's glorious.

That apple pie looks like art.

Jodi said...

Cheryl, dark for 2 reasons: 1. I'm a lousy photographer, lol! 2. Dark brown sugar crumb topping. The apples are gorgeous, aren't they? There's an orchard near us that grows over 75 varieties of heirloom apples, some going as far back as the 1600's.

Jodi said...

Kristi, you're right--this post was all over the place! Teehee! Glad to provide a distraction. I hope you're doing well.

Cindybrown said...

Jodi said...

Thank you, Cindybrown.
