Our Long Cold Winter And A Big Thank You

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

It’s been a loooong, coooold winter…but spring has finally sprung, Lacy is getting some work and I’m back online!

I sure didn’t mean to leave everyone hanging back in February, but we were really having a rough time there for a while. I was trying to keep faith and trust that the Lord would see us through -but everything just got to me all at once.

I’m not going into too many details but between hardly any money coming in, the dreary weather, and things tearing up left and right, we were about at our wits’ end several times.

But you know what? Praise God, He did see us through -we still have our home, we always had plenty to eat and not a one of our utilities was disconnected.

Thank you Lord!

Another big thank you goes out to all my dear readers who commented, emailed and prayed for us –it means more than words can say.

Thank you 

 

Many blessings,

Denese

Regarding The Yeller Snow

Saturday, February 13th, 2010

That was from our Border Collie, Blaze. See the dog print?

I was outside with my camera and he just stopped right in front of me and did his business.

It went perfectly with The Ol’ Hermit’s sayin’… and that is good advice!

Didn’t mean to gross anyone out.

 

Blessings,

Denese

Our Monday Mini-Hike

It poured down rain on Sunday and our creek got up –so we just had to go see our waterfall.

Along the way we saw…

Geranium robertianum

a wildflower ( cranesbill ?) emerging from the leaves…

Mushrooms On Log In January

and mushrooms on a log.

He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to run down like rivers.
