A winter's drive to the olde homestead....

Hello my dear friends... How are you all doing?  Everyone very busy with holidays and such... I have been housebound for awhile so my dear husband took me for a wee drive up to our old homestead today.. Just checking it out until we can go up for a day or two.. We like to go and make a fire and a few meals and perhaps have some friends in.... It is our Winter getaway... But we have not had much chance to get there the last few weeks...
Christmas and all...
Anyway, it was a simply beautiful drive and I thought I would share it with you... I tried so hard to upload it all as a slideshow but I could not accomplish it.. sorry..
The old farm is about a half hour from home ....

Along old country roads...
We have just had a winter's storm the last few days...
As you can see we are in a  very rural part of our province...
We are headed towards the Kent Hills....

Driving through lots of woods and the wilds of Eastern Canada...
Not a lot of traffic on these old back roads...
The further we go the higher the hills...
It is certainly a wooded area...
This is Prosser Brook hence the name of this little place.

                     Can you believe the colors that God has created....
An old country church....
And there is the olde farmplace....

The drive is full of snow so my poor hubby has to walk in with snow up past his knees....lol....It's a good thing he loves this old place so much...

As I am sitting here in the car I can't help but marvel at the beauty that surrounds me... God is such an Artist...

Now we need to go up the hill and turn around...

There are the Kent Hills in all of their glory...
Arn't the colors amazing?
Back home we go....
Ahh.... there's the lights of home...
Thank you Lord for such a lovely drive...
I really needed to experience your spectacular artistry today...

Have a wonderful week girls and hopefully I will soon be back on tract and give you something a little more interesting...lol..

May our God bless and keep you safe...
Hugs...
Faye

  3. Well I certainly enjoyed the drive and the views are spectacular! God saw that it was very good! Genesis 1 v. 31
    Is that a Union Jack fluttering in your drive?
    Keep the home fires burning!
    Warmest wishes

  4. That was a lovely drive! I didn't even have to warm the car or use my gas-LOL It was a nice little break from my housework (that isn't getting done very fast today!)

  5. Yes, Christine... that is the Union Jack.. For many folks our age that was the flag we mostly grew up with and still feel a connection to it.. In my shop this past summer I sold several.. They were to all of our age group...lol...
    I love our new flag, too but enjoy this one sometimes, too...

  12. That certainly was a gorgeous drive, Faye- thanks for "taking us along for the ride"! (even though it made me shiver a little!! BRRR!)
    I love the picture of the little church... and you're so right- only God can make a landscape as beautiful as that!!

  14. What a glorious place! I'll bet you enjoy living there very much. Sometimes I find that I'm so busy that I forget to enjoy the beauty around me. As I was driving my husband to work this week, I thought how blessed I am to have such a beautiful rural drive instead of a busy congested city commute. It's a good thing, I have to make that drive to and from at least three times a day!

    Blessings to you,
