Actually, although people can see our house from the road, they can't see it up this close (a good thing, I know) because it's quite far from the road and there are lots of trees and a beautiful hill of alfalfa and dandelions in the way. If it looks like Ma and Pa Kettle's house, that's because it's a long wrap-around porch with table and chairs at one end, a slate blackboard for kids to draw on when they're visiting, a little sunrise window at the landing of our stairway (which still strikes me as a miracle that it survived our kids' childhood), a wicker bench, a bay window, and the other end that is screened in. I love it. And I have loved it for 28 years. But even more than the house, I love that alfalfa field.
You might also notice that I've got a new header - at least for now. I took this photo yesterday. I love this time of year, probably especially because our winters are way too long and cold, but when May rolls around, that's when springtime comes to Wisconsin. It's not March or April as some foolishly expect, but May when spring arrives here in the NW region of the state. So the new header shows you one of the things that delights me about our state, and that's the beauty of cows out on pasture after they've been cooped up all winter. And you can see that we live in rolling hills and that there are lots of trees here. This is Wisconsin, and it's a beautiful state.
I took this photo last May, but it looks just the same now.

Praise God for the beauty of His Creation
and that winter only seems like it lasts forever.
