I had to pass the Big Giant Onion on my travels. Yep...that is what I call
it, although~it is upside down.
(oh and perhaps all the years of eating onions has left onions on my brain!)
After taking care of my errands, I went to my favorite store in town.
It is an antique shop. I found several things that will be perfect here
on the farm. I found this cute chicken cookie cutter. I think I will be
making sugar cookies this weekend.
I also found some unfinished quilts. This top was $8.00.
It is the size of a full size bed.
This one was $5.00. It is also the size of a full size bed.
Cute kitchen towel, only to be used on Thursday!
Oh and when I came home, I fed the critters. The blur of
birds racing alongside me...rushing for feed or because
I am something of a barnyard famous person~you decide!
Yes, Athena is helping. Actually she eats the hay. I know
how crazy is that?
The Double Nickel store continues to provide.
Millie is hovering below as she LOVES eggs!
I saw the tanks today in my travels. I am not sure what they are really
called, but that is what I call them. Sometimes when I pass them
I think I would like to climb the ladder on the sides and see the views
from on top.
Sierra Blanca is snow covered. I can see Sierra Blanca
pretty much every day from anywhere I travel. I do love
the views in New Mexico.
I found some old New Mexico magazines. I have been
working on a project here on the farm that I need NM
magazines for. I hope to have a reveal someday.
I love using different centerpieces for the table. Here is another
one I found today.
But my favorite find of the day was:
The Man Without a Country by Edward Everett Hale.
I will share more about this book in a future post. This book
was used by the local high school and the introduction as well as the
book is so different than what we teach our children today.
Let me say this~ long ago we left God on the curb in America.
We weren't a perfect nation but we had men and women
that believed that there was more and that we had a Creator
that we were accountable to. Now...we have Choice. Now we
have government instead of God. As a result, the slope we are on
is slippery and to recover seems almost improbable for even me
an eternal optimist.
My day closes with this thought: I do have Hope, it is in Jesus Christ
the Messiah. I do have optimism-in an eternal home. I do have peace~
knowing my birth, my life, my role was defined and designed by God in
His image and it is precious, as is EVERY person that begins in the womb.
I have love and I cleave to my spouse as God shares that
I pray that America is not beyond recovery.
