Good Evening everyone..
Today has been a beautiful but cold day here in Eastern Canada..
We had church this morning and then after a rather late lunch I persuaded hubby to take me for a little drive..
I thought that the dear girls down under might like to get cooled off.. grin..
I just want you to close your eyes and imagine you have on all of your woolies, a scarf around your neck and a nice hot cup of our Canadian coffee beside you in the cup tray..
Oh and your boots are lined and heat is pouring from the truck heater.. ok?
Now open your eyes.. smile..
Let's go for a wee drive in rural New Brunswick..
We live out in the country about half an hour from a city so our drives are mostly the rural type..
Remember that today is a very blowy sort of day..
As you can see..
This is my favorite view in our neighborhood..
Just a mile or so from our house..
It is lovely summer or winter..
Terry had to clean out the driveway first so we are quite late in starting out and the sun is going down..
These are rather rural and not the main roads but lovely country..
See all the drifts?
Yesterday's storm brought light and fluffy snow and with the wind today there is plenty of drifting snow...
Lots of horse farms in this area..
They love to get out and get a breath of fresh air..
Their coats are so heavy this time of year and they will be put back in their warm barn by evening..
It must be a bit of marsh here with all of the cat tails growing . All gone to seed now, though, of course..
So many open fields in this area..
Several huge farms and these are their fields..
It is nice and cozy in the truck though and the roads are not bad..
We have good tires.. smile..
Kind of a lonely time of day, I think..
Since my Dad died I always think of him at supper time and get lonesome..
All of my growing up years he arrived home about this time of day..
Some day though we will all sit together at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb..
Such peace knowing that he loved the Lord and we will meet again one day..
A lovely old church..
The lights are on.. smile..
The sun is almost set...
A lovely sky line in my opinion although many would prefer a line of buildings..
What do you prefer?
Terry could not resist at least one old wood road..
It is all ploughed out and the machines were all cleaned off ready for work early in the morning..
A short cut back to our house..
A long and winding road and every one's yard lights are lit..
And here we are...
Home sweet Home..
not a great pic.. sorry..
A beautiful hot Asian Chicken Noodle Soup..
And some apple pie ...
So glad I froze a bunch of pies last Fall..
Well, dear hearts ..
Thanks so much for dropping by and I hope you enjoyed this country drive..
Coming back into the house the wind was roaring around the corners and as I tightened the scarf around my neck I was so thankful that we have a warm home to come back to.
Thank you, dear Lord..
Looking forward to hearing from you all..
Which was your favorite pic?
