Footprints

 It is just past midnight, and we still have power! Plus at least 7"of snow and some ice. Tomorrow is to be 60 M.P.H. winds, so we are not out of the woods quite yet. You all guessed that my mystery photo is footprints! After studying footprints on line, plus knowing what kind of critters we have around here, I think they may be from a sparrow. So cute!




While it is well enough to leave footprints on the sands of time, it is even more important to make sure they point in a commendable direction.

A Mystery Before The Storm

 A big storm is coming our way tomorrow. Lots of snow during the day, followed by lots of ice during the evening and night. They are predicting loss of power in places, so if you don't hear from me for awhile, you will know what happened. I hope not, we have no alternate source of heat and it is way below freezing.


Meanwhile, a mystery for you. Can you guess what the snowy photo below is? I'll tell you next time.


"No one can mistake that voice— His word thundering so wondrously, his mighty acts staggering our understanding. He orders the snow, ‘Blanket the earth!’ and the rain, ‘Soak the whole countryside!’ No one can escape the weather—it’s there. And no one can escape from God."

Made Of Warm

 

Seeing this on line, I thought it was so cute. And true. It reminded me of when our son's cat threw up on his computer keyboard during the night when everyone was sleeping. The cat had the entire house to be sick in, and chose the keyboard. I think cats love them becuas they are warm so often. Because they surely cannot be comfortable!

Dinosaurs In The Bible?

 Recently, a skelton was found of this creature.


It is a Quetzalcoatlus, the largest known airborne animal to live on earth.    Once described to CNN as "giant flying murder heads," the ancient reptiles took to the sky like a fighter jet off an aircraft carrier -- punching 8 feet off the ground before flapping huge wings..

Speaking of prehistoric animals, have you read this bible passage from Job 40 about the Behemoth?

15 “Look now at the behemoth, which I made along with you;
He eats grass like an ox.
16 See now, his strength is in his hips,
And his power is in his stomach muscles.
17 He moves his tail like a cedar;
The sinews of his thighs are tightly knit.
18 His bones are like beams of bronze,
His ribs like bars of iron...

The word “behemoth” means, “huge beast,” and commentators commonly take it to be either an elephant or a hippopotamus. But the description fits neither of these, nor any other living animal. On the other hand, it seems to match the probable description of a great land dinosaur, such as the tyrannosaurus. Of course, there is an enormous time difference, so this would have been a one time occurance. Thoughts?

Milkshakes

 The look you have when your big sister's milkshake is a lot bigger than yours.


I snapped this when we were eating out with the family several years ago. During  my lucky glance at our granddaughters being served.

Blue Glitter

 These are some of the Poinsettas we saw recently. This year, the most popular seemed to be the blue with glitter! I am assuming they are dyed. Do not look natural, but are pretty in their own way.

Old Calendars

 What do you do with your old calendars? When the new year comes, I look through all the pictures, and tear out my favorites. I have plans to frame them, but never have yet. I will, though!! Here are the two that I saved from last year's calendar, I love them!
