Perfect Fall Day

Just sayin' up front that I don't have any photos of this perfect fall day because still photos just won't even touch its wonderfulness!
The sky is blue, yes, that perfect sky blue, just like the crayon, with puffy white clouds scooting quickly through on their flat, slightly gray bottoms.  The wind is blowing so that it sounds like the proverbial mighty rushing wind...is it Pentecost?  The leaves are dancing.  Twirling as they fall and swirling into little choreographed circle dances on the ground.  The branches are swaying and sighing and delighting in the dancing.  The grass is green, the light is bright, the air is brisk...ok, cool, like in I might take a blanket to wrap up in as I sit outside.
I am going to take some felt and thread and sit at La Ti Da and work on Christmas gifts while "the boys" work on the roof.  I kind of miss it being just my little husband and me doing things, but I don't want to be on the roof, so I will watch and sew and revel in the perfect fall day.
Hope you are having a perfect fall (or spring) day, wherever you are today...and hoping I have at least half a roof done by the end of the day.
How can you not see the glory of God in nature?


Later that same day....
OK.  So, I couldn't stand it.  I tried taking a little movie with my little camera and now I am going to try to put it on here....




Also, I couldn't decide between the two that I tried, so you can watch both...or neither....
I think I was wrong when I said the branches were sighing ... more of  full throated chortling!
And here is a quick picture of my monkey helpers on the roof...way up on the roof....while I am safe on the ground - praying!

It is probably that I have a really old computer....and she is very slow, but I just can not wait anymore....you will probably be able to see where the little movie was going to be...
Sorry.  It was cool.  You could hear the wind and everything.
Not to worry, though.  I enjoyed it enough for all of us.

I find it impossible not to see God's glory in nature!

If you are close enjough to Roanoke, try the Black Dog Salvage. They have EVERYTHING. You might even try to check with them online. If they don't have a key, they should have hardware that is similar if not the same as that on your door. Hopefully, you can find something that will work for you! blessings ~ tanna

Thanks, Tanna. They are probably 6 hours away, but I will try online...

Lovin' that roof!! Hope you can find your key solution online. Or maybe there is an architectural salvage yard closer to you. Good luck! blessings ~ tanna

Oh yeah, more roof lovin' from these quarters. I SO wanted a metal roof. It would have been so very right for our home, which was originally roofed in metal. Oh, wait - I think there were cedar shingles under the metal. So THAT would have been the original roofing material. Now it's ugly ashphalt shingles. Sigh.

I am ever so pleased that you were there to enjoy that beautiful day for all of us
:-)

Blessings...

Thanks, WSW! I can't wait to sit in my new home under my metal roof and hear the weather! Maybe your house will eventually evolve backwards (is that devolve?) to its metal roof days!
