The rising Super Moon graces a fir tree in the 2018 sky.

Ed and I celebrated our 40th anniversary on the 2nd.
Home-cooked favorite foods and a quiet evening at home.
Picture of Ed & I taken right before worship service a week or two before Christmas.

2018 has brought spectacular sunrises and sunsets so far.
Colorful displays flaming in the skies, stopping people, making hearts sing.
God paints the sky with colors from the sun’s light hitting moisture in the atmosphere.
The colors intensify with each passing second.
Then the moment passes, the glowing clouds fade, the sky brightens. The color show over for the morning.

Wednesday brought our son and daughter “home” for supper.
A work trip brought Justin from Idaho and we were able to make the most of the evening together.
Childhood favorite comfort food: a huge pot of chicken soup with homemade noodles to celebrate the occasion of having both kids at our table once again.

Violet, Aurora and Gus
Gus, Aurora and her family – Violet & HaymakerI am blessed!

2018 The year to trust God for courage to victoriously face a couple of my lions.

I never dreamed my life would be entangled with fiber and the tools used to produce fibery items. When I bought a boat shuttle used in weaving Ed looked at it, decided to make a better one and the rest is history. For a decade he made shuttles, crochet hooks, knitting needles, until his spindles became so popular that he had to devote his time to making them, as well as Walking Wheels. Free time is spent reading, trying to coax food from the ground, and playing in the creek near our place. I love long walks and camping far from crowds. Playing a fiddle beside a stream or with good friends brings sweetness to my soul. Sundays are set aside for worshiping God with our small Quaker meeting.

    1. You guessed it! Years ago when I first started blogging I was careful not to use people’s real names as a matter of privacy. Last night as I wrote their alias names I debated if it were time to use their real names. 🙂

  1. So much beauty here! That lovely moon, your and Ed’s smiling faces, your family – thank you for sharing all of this. A happy new year to you and yours!

  2. Happy Anniversary, Wanda! And happy belated birthday….I forgot to tell you that earlier.
    Lovely family….glad you were able to have them together for the photo and chicken soup.
    We also were married 40 years this past June.

  3. Thank you for sharing this wonderful post with us, Wanda. I love those pictures, I love to see all of your beautiful and joyful faces, and I love how you also added your short outlook on the 2018 challenges! There is another Lion with us – He will not leave us nor forsake us – I might very gratefully add 🙂
