Red Barns

It's Sunday. The sky is blue and so clear. I should be getting ready for church.

BUT....

it is 12 degrees outside and I just can't talk myself into opening that door and walking out in it. 

NOPE. 

Joining with Tom this morning at The Barn Collective

You know, Tom, that if I stay cooped up in this apartment, I am going to run out of barn pictures!!


                                   Looks like that farmer had plenty of red paint!!

Snow Time

                                           I always look forward to Fridays!!

It's not because it's the end of a work week for me... at my age, I scarely know which day is what! 

                             But, on Fridays I get to join Tanya's Willy Nilly Friday

Since we have just survived a very bad cold spell with bitterly cold temps and snow, I thought I'd share some pictures of that with you. I am also going to link up with Eileen's Saturday Critters

#1. We will start with first things, first. First the pond started freezing over. I'd never seen that before.


#2. Then came the snow


#3. It collected on my balcony


#4. Mallard ducks huddled together to stay warm


#5. Even the heron was looking for food.

Reading A Book

                                                I've always loved to read. 

I guess I got that from spending every afternoon at the library waiting on my aunt to pick me up from school. For whatever reason, I love to lose myself in books. Go to places I could never travel, get into adventures I'd never have otherwise, meet people who inspire me, scare me and those I just love. 

     I was cleaning out a cabinet the other day and ran across this book from my childhood. 


I've read this to my children and most of my grandchildren. Maybe I need to start reading it to my great-grands! 

Reading is so important. I was thrilled when I was invited to join my great-grandson, Dylan, at his school for lunch one day. 

                                    And, they just happened to be having a book sale. 

                                                    So, I bought him a book. 

                                        I am so thankful that he enjoys reading.
