Thanksgiving Fences or Ice Scream Adventures

Ice Scream adventures it is.

I scream for ice cream, even during today's brief but measurable snow fall- we headed to the ice cream parlor!

Oh, yes it was grey, quite dull without even a drop of sunshine.

But we were there anyway!


Just in time to celebrate winter!  

There we were on a stroll not along a beach but rather a snowy, Linden Hills in Minneapolis.

I truly was hoping to post just one more Good Fences post without, snow.

Everywhere, it was a blanket of freshly fallen pure white snow, upholstering the grounds in a fluffy wet fashion.

But, did I mention ice cream?

So yes, there was a beneficial means to our madness.

It was a blissfully snowfall kind of afternoon, that brought smiles and giddiness to all that ventured out, and stayed off the freeways.

Plenty of outdoor seating today.

Inside their fireplace roared with warmth, but there aren't any fences inside!

More seating just in case.  Can you spy the little sparrow in this picture?  When folks are gathered outside, they fly-in from everywhere with the hopes of treats for them.

It may be a pain, but it sure is pretty! It snowed here, but all melted.
