                                                 Aldi had valentine roses on sale!

 I had a quiet weekend, but Tim and Kyle were busy on Saturday with getting firewood. Tim loves that we've never had to buy firewood. They've just used a lot of sweat equity over the years!

I'm always amazed at how God provides. As we were getting into late fall/winter we had no firewood. But helping a friend with some downed ash at their property brought in a first supply, and there have been several other opportunities. One of those was Saturday, and there is more wood they are welcome to cut up and take!

We'll be supplied for a few years from this wood. We don't heat exclusively with wood, but we do supplement by using our wood stove in the basement.

This photo is zoomed in but I'll try to get a good photo and show you tomorrow!

After church and lunch with the family, Tim and I took a drive to Middle Creek to see the snow geese. There were not so many this time. The mild winter has lead to an early migration back north I believe. 

The lack of snow geese didn't stop people from coming to have a look. The lot we park in to go to the point were you have the best viewing was full and so was the road leading up to the lot! We decided to drive around to the other side of the lake and view them from the boat launch area.

The white line on the water is snow geese. 

If you look to the left you can see some flying over to the hill.

I got a video of them flying over to the hillside. They would fly over then go back to the water and start all over again!

We came home and enjoyed a slow evening. It was nice. 

How was your weekend?

I have two dear friends dealing with the poor health of their elderly parents and I want them to know I'm praying for them. Will you pray, too? For Cheryl, and for Sherry.

Love this beautiful community of friends.

Yes, praying for Cheryl. Do I know Sherry? Perhaps not. Hope the Snow Geese don't return too soon. It's going to be very cold here for the next two weeks. Wonderful to have a source or multiple sources for wood.

Beautiful views. I will pray for Cheryl, Sherry and their families! Our weekend was busy (but fun) traveling to SC for my step-daughter's birthday celebration. Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!


  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We spent Saturday, doing things around the house, and then we swam. Kyle and Sarah left after that...
