A sleeping baby and a fabulous view.............

Clancy has just gone down for his nap and all is very quiet here in the country. While living in the country has absolutely no appeal to me, the veiw here from Clint and Bridget's house is absolutely breath taking on a beautiful day like today. And, it is so very peaceful out here, away from the "hussell and bussell" of life. Clancy will certainly have a great place to grow up, lots of creatures, animals and no telling what all else to entertain him. :) Their latest addition is guineas. I know, I thought they were getting pigs or something. I didn't know there was a type of chicken called a guinea, but there is and they eat ticks. I know, that's sort of gross, but it sure will be nice for them and for little Clancy when he is old enough to play outside. They got 11 of them and Tommy and Clint put together a coop for them yesterday. I will definitely post pictures in the next few days. I wouldn't want any of you to miss seeing pictures of the guineas. :)

Clancy has been so curious with us on this visit. When he first saw us, he wasn't at all sure who in the world these silly folks were. But, he warmed right up to us and soon decided that he liked us. He is totally aware of his surroundings now and is very mobile. No, he isn't crawling, but is scooting and has gotten on his hands and knees a few times, so I don't imagine it will be long before he figures out how to get his hands and knees moving at the same time to get where he wants to go. Life should get very interesting in the weeks ahead.

We are so privileged to be able to travel and come to Ok. whenever we want to. Not everyone is so fortunate. My parents certainly did not have that privilege when we lived 1000 miles apart. I usually managed to see them at least 2 times a year and ever so often, we could work in a 3rd time. There wasn't email, or cell phones and we certainly didn't just pick up the phone and talk every time we wanted too. I remember when I only talked to my parents every other week for about 20 minutes. At other times, we wrote letters and mailed them by snail mail. My! how times have changed. We do look at it as a real privilege and never want to take it for granted.

I have put an eye round roast in the crock pot and will fix potatoes and blackeyed peas to go with it for dinner. I enjoy cooking when I'm here because I know that it is a tremendous help to Bridget after working all day. I did a few loads of laundry for her as well.

Life is good and it's a joy to sit here and look out and gaze upon God's creation and thank Him for his goodness towards us. We are blessed!
