Tuesday Morning in the Valley

The coffee is fresh and hot off the stove.  The woodstove is all fired up and there's hoarfrost on the trees this morning.  We had a pack of timberwolves on the edge of the pasture this morning.  The youngstock are close to the house, so I'm not too worried.  We have a couple of good sized donkeys that hate canines and are great guard animals.  They sound an alarm for the whole township to hear when something's not right.

I'm blessed to have a bunch of young friends coming over today to help make sugar cookies.  God has blessed me with children in my home even though my own are not.  He is so good. 

Yesterday was tree finding day.  I was blessed again to be able to go with some friends to find trees for everyone.  An old satellite dish (remember the kind you can use for a chicken coop roof?), was hooked behind the pickup, we all piled in and away we went.  Over the river and through the woods and not one casualty-except the three trees.

The critters are awaiting breakfast and I need to make a run into town this morning before the cookie makers get here.

Merry Christmas.

Sending the very best of New Year wishes to you and your family. I'm still trying to figure out where the month of October went . . . and now we are in the very last days of December. My daughter is in the throes of moving this holiday season so we didn't get to do our usual Christmas cookie baking together. I missed it, but next year will be different!

Happy New Year!
