Silly Photos on Saturday

Emily was happy to see her sunbeam return after so many gray days, and we did get some more blustery snow flying yesterday, enough for it to drift up against my car and I had to break out my new snow shovel.  It's much lighter than the one I had last year, but we are not getting the snow that we had here last year either.  Small things to be thankful for, but I am.  Emily was busy rolling around in the sunbeams, then discovered she could make the Wii remote move around too.  I think she would have turned it on if she could, funny how she sits right in front of me when it's my turn to play. 

I was actually trying to finish a book I was reading this morning, but she was making me giggle instead.  This is a book I bought for Mary, but I ran out of things I wanted to read this week so I picked it up.  It's called "Falling Leaves" and the author is Adeline Yen Mah.

Fingerprints on Friday

Sweet little birds!  Ok, not what Emily was thinking as she tracked them from her warm spot on top of the couch.  There were many more than these all over the ground, and one really interesting looking brown one with spots on it, so elusive, but when I tried to carefully open the door, they all flew up in a hurry so I actually had to get this shot through the window.  You can see what's left of all that snow we had flying around here yesterday, supposed to get another round today.  Still not enough to go sledding yet, so we wait and watch the birds with Emily, sweet little fingerprints of God.

Colossians 4:2
Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.

Snow on Saturday

Snow is falling, a pretty light snow and everything is covered again today.  I was looking forward to watching the snow clouds come in the other day but when I looked outside, all I could see was the snow flying and apparently the clouds were on the ground.  I couldn't even see the field across the road.  The sky is brighter now, the snow feels lighter and lifting my spirit. 

I knew it would be another good day for baking and decided on this pan of brownies with chocolate chip cookies.  I used to add chocolate chips to brownies, just for more chocolately goodness so when I saw this idea, I thought why not? 

I also made some more dishcloths this week, while staying warm under one of my favorite afghans.  We had some warm days this month, but now it actually seems like winter again, a good time to get some of my creative energy flowing and be thankful for simple joys.
