Some Word Pictures

No camera! So much to show you!




~oOo~

Tufts of green grass popping up through the melting snow. 2 little snowmen on the picnic table outside, each with little arms made  of twigs. One twig arm is folded, hand on hip. The other twig arm is holding a staff.  The heads are looking up, carrot noses pointing to the sky. Little shepherd snowmen looking up at a bright star.  They are chatting, "It's bigger tonight, and closer.  I wonder what it means?  I have a feeling something awesome is about to happen."

~oOo~

Blue and white china plates on a snow white table cloth.  A bright orange mandarin in the center of each plate. What a beautiful way to begin Thanksgiving Day! The pedestal cake plate full of warm gooey cinnamon rolls.

The lamps lit, the heaters on, the family sitting in the living room without coats and gloves enjoying the pleasure and convenience of electricity.

(did you know we had a great storm over here and lost power for a couple days?)

Off to the farm this afternoon. The picnic baskets filled with bowls and spoons, crackers and cheese and nuts and dried fruits. A large pot of chili soup wrapped in a towel to keep it warm.  I will leave it on the wood stove to emjoy at noontime.  We will spend the day making wreaths and decorating the shed for tomorrow's opening day at the Christmas tree farm. 

~oOo~

The hearts of a small family hoping to come home to simple but satisfying meal full of Thanksgiving for God's great kindness. On the menu: chicken and gravy, mashed potatoes, green salad, cranberry sauce.  A perfect pumpkin spice cake for dessert.
