"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

-Samwise Gamgee, The Lord of the Rings

The beauty of today

That is our windbreak treeline along the North side of our property. And our front fence. :)

I love these little buds peeking out of the frosty pine tree!

Above and below are what was left of the crab apples on my tree. Gorgeous with the frost!

And my 4yr old, forever hauling his shovel, through the wind break.

Today was a beautiful day.
