This is the skyline of the beautiful city, Little Rock. Actually, this is my view from the parking deck at work almost every morning. I arrive to work at the crack of dawn and I am rewarded with this amazing site. I'm going to miss this view. Becuase after Februrary, my view from work will be different. You see, I am changing jobs. Yes, I made my decision to take the new job, and I only have two more weeks left at my old one. So I'm going to be pretty busy. I have a lot of work to do in order to make this transition smooth for everyone.
So many of you are wondering where I have been, and some of you already know. I traveled to Missouri to visit my parents. And yes, they had snow! Although it wasn't the right kind of snow to make a snowman. It was hard crunchy snow. This photograph is of the old Baptist Home Nursing Home in Arcadia Valley, Missouri. The home was established in 1913, and it is quite haunting sitting up on the hill draped in snow. It sort of gave me the creeps. My grandmother used to work here. And a sister of mine was married here. In the summertime, the grounds are beautiful. The grass is very green and lush and there are lots of very big trees. But it is still creepy no matter what time of year you see it. (Shivers run down my spine when I look upon this site.)
Ah yes, and our trip would not have been complete without showing off the animal magnatism of my boys. Ginger the horse was quite taken with Nathan. They loved the snow! They were so excited, and traipsed around all afternoon.
It seem the cold didn't even bother them. This is my parent's view from their front porch. The horses belong to a sister of mine. I think they thought the boys were going to give them something good to eat. The horses are very spoiled.
They even learned about old times. This is Forrest standing beside an old antique plow in my parents front lawn. He wanted to know what it was used for. He thought it was cool.
