Yuck, I'm home finally with wet feet! I think I would have been better off wearing my muck boots....
Just snapped this picture of my Snowdrops, all snowy. We have gotten about 3" of the wettest, sloppiest, snow since this A.M.
Today, I had to take MIL for her Dexi scan and an x-ray. We hit one thrift shop while out but didn't find much of anything, just a couple of wooden candlesticks. We had lunch at her favorite little diner and headed back for home.
I was moving things around yesterday and thought I would share a picture of a lantern that I made last spring. It is very special, alot of memories built into this lantern.
Last winter (2009), the weight of the snow brought down the barn roof at my old homestead where I grew up. I spent many, many hours in that barn with both my Mom & Dad as a young girl. Well, needless to say, the old barn had to be torn down last spring, so sad to see it go. Lucky for me, my Sis and BIL live on the property so I was able to salvage some of the barnwood and tin from the roof and made this lantern. Although it may be a small piece, I have a piece and built into that piece, memories of that time.
I guess it's one of those days today, just kind of a sad day. Our family has some huge, life changing decisions that have got to be made soon. I have been trying to stay busy, keeping the old think tank occupied with other thoughts of late.
I ask kindly that you say a little prayer for us, for all involved, to help point us in the direction that we should take.
I really wasn't going to go in this direction with this post, I know that we all have our own difficulties, but I need a friendly shoulder today, I'm sure tomorrow will be fine..
Thank You in advance for your prayers, your shoulders and your ears for listening..
