Happy Monday everyone..
Welcome to the Blessed Hearth tonight..
Last week we went home for a quick visit.. We had to do a bit of laundry as we have no facilitates here at the cottage and then there is the never ending round of lawns for Terry to do..
Sometimes, I think people feel sorry for us and think we are in over our heads trying to keep these place afloat but I am telling the truth when I say we enjoy it even if it is work..
What else is there to do if you are retired?..
I know some folks enjoy travelling or golf or shopping..
That is great but for us two oldies we love getting in the truck and heading to one of the places and enjoying our time together..
Hopefully, it will keep us on our toes and they will stay flexible..
At least Terry's will.. grin..
The lovely geese above live at a farm near our house and I so love to look for them each time we pass..
Aren't they gorgeous?
Then on the way to the farm we passed this old abandoned house..
Darling Moss Roses..
Don't you love them?
They have just filled the yard with their glory and they have created a place of beauty..
At home Terry has these ones growing down the drive..
Nothing so lovely as a Summer rose..
Did someone say that once?? smile..
When we arrived at the farm to check it out and for Terry to mow lawns we found the new pasture fence and gates are in..
As we do not live at the farm and only enjoy it whenever we or our boys can get there we have no need for the pasture land..
I was inside tidying up a bit and looked out and saw him..
Leaning on the fence..
Probably, like he did when he was a kid at home..
He grew up on a farm you know..
Anyway, I expect his thoughts were a little different now then they used to be..
I expect he were wishing that those were his cows and hmmm... wonder how much on the hoof??? LOL..
We really like having them there..
Makes it like a real honest to goodness farm..
The waves today were awesome although I didn't get a picture ...
I just sat on a rock for awhile ..
So thankful for the beauty we enjoy in this old world..
Our God is a wonderful Creator and just to think
He knows my name..
He knows my every thought..
He sees each tear that falls
And hears me when I call ..
Click to hear this beautiful song..
Just some stuff I have been reading..
Nothing too deep.. smile..
It was rainy this morning so a cup of soup tastes pretty good..
Cleared up in the afternoon, though..
Our dear daughter and family have returned home from Florida safe and sound..
Thank the Lord..
Here is a little pic I came across of her in downtown Disney..
She is pretty happy that they now have a Starbucks..
Doesn't take much to please the gal, eh? grin..
Well, must go..
Terry just called and he will be home in an hour so I need to make him some Supper..
Not sure what, though..
Have a great night everyone..
Thanks for your visit and look forward to hearing from you all..
