God has wonderful promises for us as we travel on through life and into later years.The best news is that,inside we need never grow old because He has actually promised to renew our youth day by day.

Winter has arrived


Each Thursday I join my daughter as she takes the dogs out for their mid morning walk.....yesterday was rather fun as we ended up walking in a blizzard.

It wasn't snowing  when we set out.

But as we walked over the bridge that leads into the Nature Reserve the heavens opened and it was a white out.
I thought a dense fog had suddenly descended but daughter said that it was just the thick snow.


One of the dogs loved it (see top photo) and ran and jumped about enjoying himself.

The other one did not enjoy it very much (see above)
This dog spends most of her time in the river chasing sticks we have to throw in for her.
For some reason she never goes in by herself.
This worked to our advantage yesterday though as it meant that she stayed out of the freezing water...but she was definitely not happy about it!


It was very eerie, no other dog walkers about  (I wonder why?)
The Cormorants who over winter and perch precariously in these trees were also nowhere to be seen and we wondered where they had gone to shelter.

All we saw were the water fowl sitting tight on the lake and the Heron tucked snugly in his usual spot in the reeds.

We had fun walking in all this snow but glad to get home .
The temperature outside read -11"C

Winter has arrived
