Today is the kind of day that just begs me to light candles. I love candles. I think they make any day a little brighter but especially dark, gloomy, rainy days like today. This is a picture of our mantle. My good friend, Vicki, bought me this candle holder. See how the light reflects from the mirror.
These candles are in our “sitting room”. We call it that because it is a wonderful place to just sit. The view from the windows is beautiful. When I took this picture, my Grace was sitting there enjoying reading a good book. She dearly loves to read.
And this is the view from the window that you see in this picture.
We are so blessed. Well, time for school. Enjoy your day and God bless.
This is a corner in what we call the “sitting room”. It is a wonderful place to sit and read or look out the window and just rest. Remember yesterday when I said our wind was not too aggressive, well, that certainly did change. By lunch, we had 40 to 45 mph wind. By afternoon, 50 mph and by the time we went to bed 65 to 70 mph. Needless to say, we did not get any outside time. Too windy. We did walk down to the barn to get milk. It was just too much wind to do anything. Before we went to bed the rain started. It rained most of the night with lots of lightning. When we got up this morning, our temperature was 51 degrees. In less than 2 hours, our temperature has dropped down to 36 degrees. Big change. I may soon have to build a fire. Hopefully, things will warm up after today.
