|Yesterday we went for a ride along the old Sumner-Buckley Highway|
|These pictures were taken along that highway and of course I'm going to take pictures of all the old and falling down barns, sheds and houses.|
|Mt.Rainier in all her glory at every turn|
|Would you believe huge hay bales?|
|St. Aloysius Catholic Church of Buckley|
|The old Buckley school....|
|This is the end of the Rails to Trails where my sister rides her bike from the outskirts of Orting to South Prairie and back. Fifteen and a half miles.|
|It's a beautiful little park.|
|I wish these walls could talk. Jan doesn't know what this building was|
|Our last part of the drive was through theTaheleh Development in Bonney Lake.|
|On the way to pick up our New Year's Eve Pizza we took a little ride around Lake Bonney. So I saw Lake Tapps, Lake Jane and Lake Bonney during my visit this time.|
|Look closely. The lake is starting to freeze.|
|A little marsh where the ducks and geese hide sometimes.|
|Yes my friends, those are snow flakes on my coat!! I am praying the roads will stay clear until I can get on that train in Tacoma Monday afternoon.|
|The last three pictures Jan took on her very cold walk this morning. She managed to get a picture of a goose just take off in flight. Good job Jan!!|
|And here if you look between the first two trees, there are swans on the water.|
I've never been one to make resolutions. But tomorrow will be a life change for me. It will be a life with out my Joe. But I do have precious memories. What is this new life going to look like? I don't have a clue but I love the words to this old Ira Stanphill Song.
I know from these last two months, there will be days when it's living moment by moment one breath at a time. These couple of weeks I've spent with Jan I've had time to think about when I get home... I want to let the Lord be more in control of my life and me not trying to help Him, I want to try to develop a daily routine but not have to beat myself up if I don't stick to it. I want to eat right, exercise more, spend more time with old friends and get to know my neighbors and make new friends at church, just to name a few.
So thus ends another year. I looking forward to the New Year no matter what it brings because I know who holds the future.
I'll love you for ever and for always
