A walk with my husband!

It was minus five degrees, but the sun was shining, so my hubby and decided to go for a walk to our boat to bring a charger that we are going to use there. So come along with us!

I wrote quotes in between the pictures, so you won't get bored:)

This is the backside of our house! Here was the starting place;)

Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts.

Life is like an onion

Life is like an onion; you peel off one layer at a time and sometimes you weep - Carl Sandburg

A neat saying

Going to church does not make you a Christian anymore than going to McDonald’s makes you a hamburger.
