I'm really glad I took my pictures yesterday of the beautiful autumn colors, 'cause look what happened today:
|View from the front porch|
|It's beginning to look a lot like winter!|
|View to the north from the front porch.|
So today I'm thankful for a heater that works, storm windows and doors, warm blankets and clothes, a gas stove and oven, and a water heater. All the modern conveniences that make life during the winter in Iowa bearable. I recently read, as I do each year, The Long Winter, by Laura Ingalls Wilder. This book, more than any other, helps me remember my many blessings. I have it so easy!
