How About Sparkling Monday Morning!
My last post was titled Frosty Friday Morning I do believe ~well this morning's frost has that one all beat~~The frost lies white and sparkling on the grasses, on the glass, on the vehicles, on the fences. By golly it lies everywhere! You do not have to go out and check it out to make sure it is real. Believe me IT IS REAL!!
The sun is gloriously shining and bit by bit it is warming up the landscape. Mist is rising off of the river.The hay-meadow is sparkling. It is a very pretty morning. Kind of an understatement but this morning I am just in awe of the beauty that surrounds us. Words sometimes seem to demean that beauty.
Our grandchildren are gone home now and as I find a pair of socks here and little girls underwear there and a squirrel hide take to the stretching board I can only smile. They were so much fun. Sad that my camera batteries died as we started to do a ranch photo take. Was really hoping there were more batteries and can not find my rechargeable ones. Now to find a way to post these ones we took. The older boys took their b.b. guns and went on a rat patrol for us. No luck finding rats (thank goodness) but they found a very unfortunate squirrel. Granpa helped with the skinning. First off making a stretching board for it. It will be a lovely little fur when it is all done. All in all the baby of the family slept well and no screaming, howling baby or children (well except for a few minutes when one of the boys got his hand caught in the door of the suburban) Poor little guy! It is okay though PTL! Prayerfully next time they come it won't be so rainy!
Today I am planning on doing home things and really praying that it stays clear and can get to some more planting of our garden. Would be nice to get that finished before winter sets in. LOL!
If ye then be risen with Christ,
seek those thing which are above,
where Christ sitteth on the right
hand of God.
Looking forward to the day
