Howdy, another Saturday but a wee bit chilly today.  Isn't that a beautiful view from the porch?  Nothing like sitting on the porch in a rocker, coffee in hand and looking at all the beautiful things our good Lord has given us.  Today, I feel the ole bones as they ache and I guess from the cold air.  But, I will not regreat it as I am thankful to be alive.
The sun is beginning to go down and almost another day is gone.  Don't forget to let someone know how much you appreciate them and always smile as tomorrow is another day.

Have a wonderful Evening

Morning, What a beautiful picture, the snow falling on the lake.  This would be a dream of mine to live there for just awhile anyway.  We have rain today so hopefully just a lazy day here for me.
Weather man says it will be 45 in the morning so a good change for us.  I love the winter chills, sitting by the fireplace witha crochet hook in my hand.  Not that is relaxing for sure.
Will make this short as I was just checking to see if I had fixed this computer.
Have a wonderful day.
