It’s another cold day in Alberta. The high today is expected to be -18C (around zero F.) Any way you measure it, it’s mighty cold out there!
This morning as I was driving home from an appointment I noticed a sun dog. I didn’t get a change to take a picture since I was driving, but it’s a really impressive phenomenon.
It’s day 3 in my photos of Alberta series. These were all taken in the past few weeks. I hope you enjoy them and join me in praising our Creator God for the gift of beauty in nature.
Even the most insignificant has a moment of glory
Frigid foggy farm building
Whiter than snow
Chalky contrast on cobalt
It’s Friday, time to look back over the blessings of the week with Susanne at Living to Tell the Story and other friends.
No longer Bleak Midwinter In a land where cold and darkness reign in the winter (think of the setting of Christina Rossetti’s In the Bleak Midwinter) the sunny days and budding trees of spring are welcome and appreciated.
New roommate for our daughters We met a lovely new young lady who is currently rooming with our daughters. She’s lived in many of the Commonwealth countries and has a delightful blended accent one enjoys listening to. Best of all she is a sister in Christ and we enjoyed fellowshipping together with her this past week.
They’re sprouting!! I planted some of my seeds in an indoor container last weekend and am already seeing sprouts! Because we’ve had such lovely warm weather this year, I’m tempted to plant these in my nice raised bed planters outside, but overnight temperatures here are still getting down to freezing so I simply need to be patient.
Taxes done Our tax prep is done and with our tax lady. It’s not my favorite thing to do, so I always breathe a huge sigh of relief when all the information is collected, logged, and organized to turn over to the capable Mel.
Drive in the country We live in a small town south of the city of Edmonton, Alberta’s capital. Any direction out of town takes us through large sections of farm land. I find it peaceful and relaxing to drive past these vast parcels of rural agriculture. Saturday evening my husband took me for a drive in the country. Here are some of the pictures I took that evening.
Hope you have an encouraging week full of blessings and hope.
