A Beautiful Day!

It was such a beautiful day out today...the sun was shining and even though it was a bit "brisk", it was calm, no snow and after all, the sun was shining! I just had to go out and enjoy the day a bit. I took this picture, while the sun was peering through our trees....what do you see? I only added the border to this picture, nothing else and I see little spots, that look like little prisms or something. I would like to think that in our wooded area, may be there are "little sprites" (fairies) dancing around. Maybe? A small being, yet being in human form, playful and having magical powers...you just never know...you always must let your imagination play...

Over the past couple of years while being on-line, I have always been asked, where do you live? Are there hills, flat land, what? So, here is a picture of part our back yard...and yes, flat, very flat land in my area. I love this picture and how the trees stand so proud...if you listen, trees talk to you....yes, even during the winter. The sun played off the trees and created beautiful shadows...

And this is in the front of our home. Our home is virtually in the middle of a field. We have a very long driveway and field all the way around us. We have somewhat more of a "wooded" area, on the north side of our property. I didn't get a picture taken of that. During the more mild months, you can see so much nature, hear so many birds and see so much beauty. I love living here...although the winters can be pretty brutal. We have lived here for almost 7 years and in that time, this winter is the one that has been the worst...

This is our long driveway. I was standing at the end of our sidewalk, from our home...yes, a long sidewalk too. Some have asked about living in the country and why do we live here....well, there is just something about living in the country that you can not put into words. Yes, there is more work - to living in the country, a longer drive - to and from town, but out here - when all is quiet and it is just you, with the sun on your face and a slight breeze, listening to the birds singing....well, there is nothing quite like it. Peaceful Winter Blessings to you, ~Tonya

Thank you so much, Gina, Dana and Linda! I agree Gina.

Dana, it is so very serene out here. WE love it, well the kids agree most days, if they don't want to go into town. LOL

Linda, I am sure they are pretty, but not covered in ice and snow. Think SPRING. ;)
