Because there is beauty in every season…What good is the warmth of summer without the cold of winter to give it sweetness. ~ Author unknownWinter giveth the fields, and the trees so old, Their beards of icicles and snow… ~ Charles duc d’Orleans, translated by Henry Wadsworth LongfellowI didn’t want to scare this fish crane, so I zoomed in on him. I love to watch them come in for a landing at our pond.Winter came down to our home one night Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers of snow, And we, we were children once again. ~ Bill Morgan, Jr.
And, ” You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the work of your hands;” Hebrews 1:10
Have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy the snow 🙂
Ate supper under balloons that Kirsten strung up for Jenna’s bday Played with flashcards and an empty lego box Wrapped gifts to send to Haiti for my sis and her family. Do not ask me how the packages looked 😉 We hope they got opened before they looked at them too hard. My wrapping skills need work. Then add a 3 yr. old to the mix. You get the picture 🙂 Observed, talked, and “helped” the guys doing the stone on our house. We hope they didn’t dread showing up at our place. I’m guessing they learned more about us than they wanted to 🙂 Whoever said boys don’t talk as much as girls?? 🙂 Helped me by VOLUNTEERING to do the dishes. Any mother LOVES when that happens! A suncatcher project on a cold day Enjoyed the snow. Or should I say I enjoyed looking at it. The mess, the gloves, the snow pants, etc., not my favorite thing. At least the children had fun 🙂
And in between all that, we laughed, we cried, we fought, we worked, we apologized, we complained, we were grateful, we were not grateful, we were kind, and not so kind. We spilled things, threw things, fell off things, fixed things, cleaned the house, washed, folded, cleaned the house, cooked, baked, cleaned the house. Did I say clean the house? 😉 And we probably did a host of other stuff.*
* I did not participate in all the above, just in case you get a very, very bad impression of me 🙂
That’s all for now, folks 🙂 Have a lovely day!!
