Beautiful Sunrise

I love sunrises. Mornings are my favorite time of the day! I also like afternoon and sunsets and stars. I really like all the day!

It’s was a beautiful start today.

Makes one wonder what the weather has planned for us. There is snow in the forecast. Hopefully it won’t be like the blizzard that we had a few days after Thanksgiving.

More Snow – Photos

I had planned on going back out this morning to get some more photos of the snow covering the trees.  The snow fell so gentle and blanketed the trees, they looked like  flocked Christmas trees – only much better!!  We ventured out early, but the wind came up and it was more like a blizzard, so enjoy these photos from yesterday.

Native (some say invasive, but I like them!) Red Cedar

I don’t know what model this old red truck is, but it was so pretty in the snow.

 

 

Typical Autumn Day In Kansas

It’s a beautiful autumn day, or maybe a winter day. Started snowing early this morning and has been snowing all day.

Snow roses

Dinner tonight won’t be on the patio.

Wylie likes to ride with his head out the window.

Relief

It has been a hot dry summer (I don’t like the heat anymore), but a nice change came thru today. 1-1/2 inches of rain this morning followed by a beautiful cool day and more rain this evening. So cool out and it smells wonderful. I won’t have to water flowers tonight.

Early morning rain.

Cool day with amazing sky.

Evening storm rolling in.

It’s COLD Out

A quick powerful winter storm moved thru yesterday. Started out with freezing drizzle then changed to snow along with 40 mph winds. Made for some pretty good drifts.

Please use the back door, I haven’t shoveled the front walk.

 

A great day to stay inside and bake some bread. This is a starter that my mother had used years ago. She gave it to a friend of hers and he has been making bread for years. After she passed away, I called him, he was still using her starter and he gave me some. I bake bread weekly and also make a wonderful chocolate cake. Makes the best pancakes too! I love the end of a loaf for French toast and also make Panzanella salad.

Stay warm

Oh my gosh, I am still learning how to post on my laptop, I think it is easier on the phone (Jessica!).

Maxwell Game Preserve

Mr. Farmer went to look at a piece of farm equipment and when he told me where he was going, of course Wylie and I wanted to ride along.  We had some extra time and so we drove through the game preserve.  So wonderful to see the buffalo and a few elk.

Even spotted some elk.
