The warm weather gave in to more normal winter weather for us this week.
Frolicking in snow is pure joy for GoodGirl. ChihuahuaTwo however is not the least bit amused.
I adore variety.
Count your blessings, friends!
“The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.”
Lamentations 3:22-23 (NLT)
Among Southeastern Washington State’s many attributes I adore its variety. We have variety in variety. Routine quickly becomes tedium in my apartment, so this climate suits me.
The photos from the same week suggest spring, summer, fall and winter – and it’s barely mid fall.
7 days into my fall garden box:
Sweet Alyssum popping up between the fallen leaves:

Late morning sunlight glaring from the frozen tarps on the wood bins …
…before the rain returned…

Happy Walking, Bloggers!
“As long as the earth remains, there will be planting and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night.” Genesis 8:22 (NLT)
Since we’re already feeling change in the air I’m reposting from What Next, Sept 2016 and reflecting upon how far we’ve come. I highly recommend it!
Someone recently posed the question, “Do you have a favorite season?”
I wonder what makes any one season favored above the others. I enjoy them all!
Variety enhances life, especially seasonally. I thrive in climates with four distinctive, equal seasons. Early signs of the approaching season exhilarate me, but I don’t really have a favorite. I love bundling up to take in the silence of snowfall in winter, the invigorating color displays and refreshing air in spring and autumn and warm, balmy summers delight me. But I especially like change when the current weather becomes tedious.
Following are photos from our recent visit around Glenwood Springs, Basalt and Carbondale, before autumn falls 😉
“For the beauty of the earth
For the glory of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies.
Christ our God, to Thee we raise,
This our hymn of grateful praise.*”
