Spring Time Around The Burg 2016

We are having a lovely Spring in The Middle this year. Perfect temperatures. Not quite enough rain but a bit here and there.

We enjoyed a drive yesterday in the country toward a town called Calhoun and onward to Warsaw, Missouri located on a portion of Truman Lake. We had a late breakfast at The Rusty Skillet.

Here are some pics – taken from my iPhone6 but recognizable. ūüėÄ

Still Winter Around The Burg

It’s the last week of February with an extra day attached. Still drab in color but nature is alive. Spring is just around the corner and colors will return.

Here’s the beef…….

Enjoy your weekend!

Tea Time

It’s a gorgeous day in The Burg. ¬†Not a cloud in the sky after two days of rain. The air is crisp and clear. ¬†Nothing like a little walk around town and then a treat.

I love treats.  I try to space them out so they can truly be a treat.  If done too often then I take them for granted.  Treats are much more enjoyable when they are not regular and maybe a bit spontaneous.

It’s been very serious in the social media realm this past week or two. ¬†Many things to ponder.

So today’s treat was welcomed. ¬†Not to forget the things in the world but to help get perspective. ¬†A perspective of Hope and a broader view. ¬†A God’s – Eye view.

So Penny June and Papa and me took a stroll and saw things through the eyes of a child.  Wonderment.

Ice tea and cinnamon bun РPJ ate her cookie at a rapid speed.  A great morning at Old Drum Coffee House.

Mid-West Skies

Since we moved to the mid-west I never get tired of looking at the vastness of the sky.  I know the sky can be seen almost anywhere but when you spend years of marveling at the ocean, as I did, and you move to where there is no ocean, the sky becomes your ocean.  It is amazing.

Today I was struck with the clear quality and the deep blue…….

“Your unfailing love, O LORD, is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.” ¬†Psalm 36:5

Enjoy! ¬†And USA (states that do this) don’t forget to fall back one hour when you go to bed tonight! ūüėÄ

Lions Lake

Hello All.

This Autumn is so fresh and slightly crisp around The Burg. ¬†We get some color changes in the trees but really don’t have enough of those gorgeous Maple Trees that Vermont is famous for. ¬†But our trees still change and I love it.

Here are some snaps of our walk around Lions Lake this morning.

and a video of the geese…..

Autumn is Coming to The Burg

I must have several posts swimming around in my mind that I could write about…..

BUT, it is autumn and my most favorite time of year.  Therefore, I daydream way too much and enjoy more drives around our lovely town.

So here you go.  We found this unpaved road just out of town and went exploring today.

Enjoy!

More Sunflowers

I posted the other day Field of Dreams.  I loved seeing the sunflowers so much that I packed up a lunch and diapers and potty chair and husband and took our grand daughters to see them.

The pictures say it all.

Enjoy!
