These Happy Golden Days

Picture taken 12/6/16
No changes or filters necessary. God's creation is beautiful!
At the Mountain over Thanksgiving

Golden years are passing by,
Happy, happy golden years,
Passing on the wings of time,
These happy golden years.
Call them back as they go by,
Sweet their memories are,
Oh, improve them as they fly,
These happy golden years.

Quoted from These Happy Golden Years by Laura Ingalls Wilder

We met a group of 6 huskies coming down the Mt. They were named different gems.

Today it started to snow at our new house for the first time. It's still coming down as I write. On Monday, I had to drive in very thick snow from my Civics class. It had just been 5 minutes and the roads and cars were covered in snow.
     Thursday is a lazy day. Everything is canceled. I'm reading through the Anne of Green Gables series and it's funny how often I read my name, Avonlea. In Civics class, our teacher was writing down names of county senators. A boy was reading off the list to her and when the name "Anne" came up, our teacher wrote "Ann". The boy corrected her, "it should be Anne with an e." That's what got me started on reading the series again. The only problem is that I've watched the movie so much that I don't have any imagination for the book! A big problem.....however the movie goes astray pretty soon after the second book so I'm not having problems anymore.
