It's A Beautiful Morning

Sunrise over the barn


but cold.  Seriously cold.  

I was so thankful that I did not have to go anywhere yesterday, though I did do all the animal care.  The chickens water was completely frozen, even though we have put it inside the coop!

We watched "A Christmas Carol" last night - the version from 1951, I think.  Black and white.  It was good, and the younger kids were able to follow the story because we had listened to the Radio Theater version a few weeks ago on our way to Williamsburg. It shows, so well, a life that is changed.  Scrooge was so giddy at the joy of a second chance and because he knew he was going to be able to help Bob Cratchit and his family.  That is the kind of joy we should have at Christmas!

I have a few errands to run this morning. I will be bundling up very well...


Thank you for your comments yesterday.  I emailed everyone back that I was able to.  I so appreciate the discussion.  Please know that I was not saying to not buy gifts - we do buy gifts for our family, my thoughts were more about entitlement.


Have a wonderful day!

  1. Hi, I have been enjoying your blog for some time and wanted to introduce myself. (I totally understand about the comment moderation.)Your last 2 posts have touched my heart. Oh, another thing I have been wanting to tell you, you had a post about a rag quilt earlier this year. I fell in love with that and have actually got all the stuff together to make one myself. I hope to get to it sometime soon. I see that it is veyr cold in your neck of the woods. I am in Texas and today it is 70degrees! Crazy!
    Well have a Merry Christmas.
    Nice to meet you.
    Brenda
