It was a ,busy weekend here...but on Friday morning I enjoyed watching about 6 cardinals outside my window...looked so pretty with the snow.
did you know?
Cardinals hold the standard for monogamy
among birds.Mates for life, they stay together year round,feeding and nesting up to four broods each season.
They are known for the harmony of their singing; one bird trilling a melody,which the other picks up and completes. (J L Turner)
Later I picked up my daughter. This is a good three to four hour trip all round, the roads were messy with snow so it took us at least that.
Always good to be home safely again.
Saturday was a blur of activity, but I managed a great ski out in the glorious sunshine. My oldest daughter and friend were on the ATV in our bush when they came across a herd of forty deer!!!!
Now where is a camera when you need it?
I call this my retrospective view...
I love skiing out to this spot and looking back. (that is our barn in the distance)
I breathe the fresh air deeply and simply thank God for life and His faithfulness,
Sunday; beautiful frost decorated the trees outside our window,
what a lovely scene to wake up to!
When hubby came out to the barn later he found one of our ewes had given birth to twins! Let's hope they survive....(raising sheep hasn't exactly been a breeze!)
here's a peek at them ( the photo is a little blurry but I thought this pose was so cute)
We did still make it to church...and later on we enjoyed skiing and then relaxing with friends.I love a rest from the usual race and routine on Sunday's, and relaxing with friends is a good way to do that!
I hope your weekend was sweet.
Can you believe one month of 2013 is almost over?
