A Blustery Monday
Good morning to you. I hope you had a delightful weekend that was filled with blessings regardless of what is happening. Yesterday afternoon hubby and I decided to go for a drive to the mountains; I love being within 45 minutes to the Rockies. It always refreshes me to venture up there and yesterday was no exception; it was a very windy afternoon and we thought that snow would be falling but it just sprinkled a bit. The colors of the Aspens and other trees were still phenomenal through the canyons and it does my heart good to be there. We went into Rocky Mountain National Park to look for Elk but only saw a few because most of them were in town. After driving a quick loop we headed back to town and happened to see this guy in someones yard. Will you just look at that rack-he was huge. I wonder if the locals get tired of these guys in their yard? After watching him for a few minutes we headed home as it was getting late and we didn't want to wait for bad weather. If I lived there I might get tired of the traffic and congestion but oh how it makes me smile. Last night we tried a new recipe, from our daughter, to make Clam Chowder-I may have to post it here for you. It was so good and perfect for a cool Fall day; I can't have it regularly because it contains both dairy and gluten-two big no-no's for me; but I did have to try it. Today is extremely windy here and everything is blowing out in the yard so I know what I'll be doing this morning.
Have a blessed day dear ones and keep your eyes upward.
