fresh snow and fresh paint

We awoke this morning to one more fresh blanket of snow. This picture is taken behind the barns looking out to the fields. Terry came and told me to come and have a look. There was a young eagle sitting in the back tree.
There he is. The tree was pretty tall and this was as close as I could get without climbing the tree which is difficult in pajamas.

Since I tend to take pictures from the bungalow I thought that should venture out and take one of the bungalow.
This is the view from my window. The raspberries have their beautiful times. This is one of my favorites.
Oh, look. Terry has finished the old dresser and its back in its place. The mirror above it was an old window taken from a house that was being torn down about 15 years ago. I am so thankful for my talented husband. I'm not gloating, that would be unfair. We make a pretty good team the two of us. He works hard and I try to feed him.

That reminds me, has anyone read the Proper Feeding and Care of Husbands? My friend has read it and is now passing it around. I've looked for it but haven't found it. It is written by Laura Schlessinger. She has a new one out now called the Proper Feeding and Care of Marriage. Any reviews?
Well, I need to run, I've a luncheon to attend. It looks to be a great day.

  1. Gorgeous view and an eagle to boot. Sweet! And now I'm hungry for raspberries.

    I've read Care and Feeding, and recommend it highly. It goes hand--in-glove with Love & Respect by Eggerichs, which I consider to be the most valuable book on marriage out there.

    Those of us with happy marriages will know how that happened, (it's very scriptural, but with modern examples) and those who are struggling with their marriages will have a "light bulb went on" insight.
    The most amazing thing I got from the books was how important respect is to men. I was stunned to learn that if men had to choose between:

    1. being left alone and unloved in the world or

    2.to feel inadequate and disrespected by everyone,

    74% of men would choose to number 1.
    That is how important respect is to them. Whoa! What a conversation starter with the men in our lives.

  2. Thanks for sharing about the book. I haven't read it but I think that it would be interesting to read and healthy for any relationship. Have a good day!

  3. I saw Dr. Laura the other day on "Marriage Uncensored". Did you see it? I quite enjoy her no-nonsense, get-your-head-on-straight approach to life. I think I would like to read the book as well...for future reference, that's is. ;)

  5. Jennie, i didn't see Dr. Laura. I missed it. When we went to Disneyland with the boys a couple of times, it seemed like she was on the radio for hours at a time while we were driving those long stretches. Talk about a captive audience, it was great. You keep reading those books you never know.:)
    Jill, Thank you for the heads up on the books, I will look up the Love and Respect book as well for our marriage mentor group that Terry and I help at.
