"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"! Laura Ingalls Wilder

when all is right with the world..

Snow!  Not just a skiff but real, coming down in lofty softness to blanket the lawn, the trees, the rooftops in oh such freshness for real snow!  I watched the top of my poor husband's head and shoulders become whiter each time he returned to the door to gather more of his needed supplies for the trudging through pre-dawn he'll be doing this morning.  The mighty hunter is off in search of the elusive Wapiti. Elk. If he is successful, it and the buck that Larry brought in last month will be enough to sustain us (with extra to share) for the coming year.  How fortunate I am to be married to a great hunter and provider!

Since the house is quiet and I am up and it's Saturday with nothing on the agenda (how often does that happen?  I know!) I have more of the beautiful pygora from my dear friend's goat and it's becoming the most luscious yarn.  The snow is falling, the man is providing, the girls are sleeping and I'll be spinning.  If only every day could be like today.  :)

I pray that this day finds each of you enjoying what you enjoy and basking in the gracious gifts that are yours.

Blessings, Debbie

  3. All IS right in your world. Enjoy each moment! Thanks for the prayers for our mess in WV...really appreciate them. They are having to rebuild the electricity for some areas from the ground up! Can't imagine.

  7. It's always so nice to hear from you, Debbie! I was happy to have you come knocking on my (blog) door. :)

    I'm so glad that all is right in your world today! Your morning sounds dreamy...and I hope the rest of the day continues to be so lovely and restful.

    (To satiate your curiosity ~wink~...yes, it did take awhile to post about our busy weekend, although I did do several smaller posts in between. And yes, it was more than a coincidence. It takes a little longer to recover these days.) =D

  9. This sounds like such a beautiful day like I had in my childhood. The men hunted and the women knitted by the fire while bread baked in the oven.

    Our snow is all gone in the valley with the rain we had but we can still see tell tale of snow banks up on the hill around parking lots.
    Thanks for the blessings.

  11. Deb, I'm glad you're happy with it - ours is just about gone, but I know it'll return!

    as for your mysterious Nolie - I confess that I wish you hadn't promised you wouldn't do any more cat posts, because she is rather intriguing. :) Have you tried opera?

  12. Enjoying what I enjoy indeed. Family. :) No snow here yet, but it is mighty chilly out. Keeping warm by the fire and crocheting up a storm (Christmas is coming...). Blessing to you, Debbie.

  16. We are just enjoying our first frost. Love the cold weather even more because it's been so long since we've experienced it. Hope your slow weekend was restoring and full of God's gifts!

  17. Oh it sounds like the most cozy and scrumptious of Saturdays. I pray your hubby did get his goal. Did he? I would love to know. And I hope one day soon we can see a pic of this delectable yarn. [o=

  18. It sounds a bit heavenly to me. We rarely if ever get snow so when we do, it always brings excitement. The excitement is nice, but it kind of interrupts any coziness.

    I've been pretty much AWOL from blog land for months now. It's nice to take a few minutes to stop by.
