Last Friday’s Winter Storm turned out to be wind, cold and a few flurries. Saturday, we had continued wind and cold. The rancher got lots of paperwork done in the house. I got caught up on a bit of skirt work and did some baking. Today warmed to the low teens and the wind died down to a breeze.
Living on the prairie we get to see and experience a lot of the outside. I took this picture on our way to the Big City last week. J doesn’t know why it’s called “Sheep Mountain,” but always has been.
This cow looks over the backside of her peers eating hay. She looks up and wonders what the crazy camera lady is doing.
I honestly believe in the “Little Things” that make our lives bountiful. Molly is a constant reminder of living simply and enjoying little things … a nice walk outside, laying in front of a warm fire, taking an afternoon nap, love and the joy of an occasional table scrap.
A Cup of … Coffee to start the day! I didn’t take a picture of my coffee mug, but rest assured it is well used.
Taking in the beauty around me causes me to stop and reflect about all I have been blessed with. I am lucky to have wonderful people in my life that love and support me. I am blessed that all my basic needs of safe, healthy food, clean water, clothing, shelter and transportation are abundantly met. I have learned and grown from the variety of life experiences I have lived through. I look forward to the experiences I have yet to live and the wisdom I will hopefully gain.
Arthur Conan Doyle says “It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important.” Little things like enjoying the great outdoors and realizing the fact that you have many blessings. Reflect on the big things like standing behind your core beliefs or being there for your family and friends. Big or little may your cup runneth over.
