Authentic Compassion

Spring is definitely coming

Snowfall on Monday - gave Senor Cerdo (our garden flying pig ) a cold coat. I did my usual stunt and fell down in back yard while taking dogs out - but damage seems to be minor - achey and stiff no breakey!

Our weather is classic North Texas - from snow to fog to bright sunshine in 36 hours!

Warming ground and moisture coming through seems to have given us quite a bit of fog lately - picture is from the back of our yard toward house and newly constructed storage building/carport.Posts are for temporary fence (which is temporarily not being worked on.)

New carport is great and DH will work on converting attached to house garage into heated/air conditioned woodworking shop for his projects.

Working on getting other place minor repairs and needs deep cleaning before sale can be

completed - hoping and praying to close in mid March and be done with that chapter.

Fun finding out what is already here in our new home - lots of daffs appearing - I moved the toad house (which is disguised as a bird house sitting on the ground) into front area.

Seasons of life -we see changes in snow or daffodils or downsizing - all part of the Plan. Bless y'all for coming by - our much more compact and spring 'a'popping Buhlaland - it is good here too.
We are doing OK on new health plan - DH not going for a lung transplant so working hard to stay active and be humbly grateful not grumbly hateful! every day God gives us together. You will see a big change in next couple of weeks - goat heading going away - have accepted reality we will NOT be having goats now so I'm working at finding good homes for final beloved 5 very spoiled goats!

The daff o' dills are so very very pretty. The workshop idea sounds delightful.

So nice to see an update. I pray that your goats will find a loving home. The daffodils are so very pretty - I'm anxious for Spring. God bless you both this weekend.

It is kinda sad to say good-bye to a part of your life that has brought you so much happiness. ( goats) But God brings so many other joys into our lives when we're "humbly grateful, not grumbly hateful", as you have so colorfully said!

I think I am going to start a notebook of "LindaSue-isms", I love the way you express yourself.

Your place is looking good, and daffodils are sure a day-brightener, aren't they?

I love your new place, Linda Sue - even without the goats. It's going to be great! And look at those daffodils coming up! What a bonus!
That's a great workshop/garage - I'd love to have something like that here on our place.

I agree with Kathy - your express yourself so 'colorfully'! Have a great weekend, you two!

Part of the Plan. I am glad you shared the plan this morning. I needed to see the hope of spring!

I like your new place, Linda Sue. I am sure there are aspects about it that are difficult (goats). Yesterday I read Matthew 6: 25-34. "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life." Powerful scripture that we must remember, even though we are human and weak. I am right with you, Linda Sue.

Sounds like this will be an exciting spring, Linda Sue~ especially not knowing what will bloom and pop up in your new yard next!
Sorry you're having to say goodbye to your goats, but... there is always chickens.... :)

Be careful and don't fall any more! Glad you are ok! Beautiful daffodils, what a nice welcoming present to your new life there!

Looks like some of us are on the downsizing trend. I suppose as we get older we just have to have a smaller place and realize other oppourtunities that God has for us.I will miss your goats I love your pictures of those sweet creatures.
