Striped Field

Two weeks ago, this is what our first snow looked like in the fields.  Now, more snow is being forecast for tomorrow and the next day. 

As I mentioned yesterday, we did have a family gathering here on the day after Christmas.  Our four kids and their three spouses and six grandchildren were here.  Its getting to be a house full.  I made lasagna and corn and they brought various hot dishes and Christmas goodies. 

Our grandchildren are now aged five through ten.  All growing like weeds, as used to be said back when I was a growing kid.  It was nice enough that they could play outdoors and they also spent some time up in the haymow---always an intriguing place.  I think they had a good time.

I'm trying to remember what it was like to be in growing mode like our grandchildren are.  I can recall shoes getting tighter and pants getting shorter.  I don't think we really feel the growing going on, though.  We just feel the results of growing. 

It was so nice to see everyone.  No one had even a cold so that was good.  We'll hope there was no Covid lurking in anyone.  

Enjoy your Tuesday!
I hope you stay safe and well.

I'm sure the children enjoyed themselves in that haymow. I can remember playing in hay as a child, it always smelt so nice :)
