Pretty side of life

Amazing how, if one would only look up instead of down, pretty life can be.  Such is the contrast when looking out the front of our house.  Should we look down, we see this:
All the effort we put into our front yard this summer, taking out the dead oak tree, trying to level the front yard, sod, grass seed, work in flower beds, etc., has been greatly disturbed!  We've been promised that everything will be completed by tomorrow.

Now, if I were to look up, even just a bit, I am gazing into glorious fall colors, like this:
And here's a better view of the same tree:
Let me be looking up today, from where my grace and salvation comes from.

Long overdue!

Been awhile since I blogged.  Can cover a few things in just one post!  Lucky me!!!  We finally took a fairly decent photo of ourselves for the adoption agency we're using.  I just don't like photos of myself, so it's always a challenge finding one.  We took one of the four of us as well.  Without much further adue, here they are:

The other photo I've been meaning to take, well since Monday anyway is our Thanksgiving or Blessing tree.  We're trying to daily write out something we are thankful for, on a leaf, and hang it.  Hoping to keep this up through Thanksgiving.  Should be a full tree by then.  Yes, it wraps into the kitchen, touches the floor, and goes onto the ceiling.

There you have it, our most recent photo's!

It's been a long time!

Thankful I don't have any blog readers out there, waiting in baited breath, for my blog posts. You all would be long since dead. Needless to say, I've had a lot of thoughts on writing and picture taking, but they just didn't happen.

We are all safe here, in our corner of the world. We've been plugging away at school, trying to stay ahead of daily chores, and keep our heads up.

Hope all is well with you!
