Angels We Have Heard On High

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o'er the plains
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains.

Gloria in excelsis Deo
Gloria in excelsis Deo

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire your heavenly song?

Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come adore on bended Knee,
Christ the Lord, the newborn King

See Him in a manger laid, Whom the choirs of angels praise;
Mary Joseph lend your aid While our hearts in love we raise.

Gloria, in excelsis Deo
Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Sage went out quietly this morning despite the 50 mph winds that were blowing.  She had her head up a little but she wasn't jumping around like Rosie did.  In fact, she knocked Bob down.  He didn't get hurt but it startled him.  Not like her at all.  Ditto didn't want to go out so she didn't have to.

The other picture is of one of my cowboy boot birdhouses.  My sister bought that for me at  Bell  Buckle, TN several years ago.
Love it.  Have a brown one too that Katie got me for my birthday a couple of years ago.

Yesterday we had quite a snowfall and I intended to go get some nice snow pictures this morning.  However, the temperature went up and the wind blew.  Boy did it blow.  Gusts up to 60 mph.  And between that and warmer weather.........well no more snow to speak of.  But lots of sloppy stuff. 

Found out I don't have Justin this week after all.  I really appreciate that because I still have a bit to do before we leave on Thursday.  I do just have one package to finish wrapping and then I can put that stuff away.
