The Shepherd and The Sheepcote

"When dusk falls, shepherds lead their sheep to a safe place to spend the night, where wolves or other predators cannot prey on the sleeping sheep. Usually the shepherd builds a stone enclosure with a small opening and he calls the sheep one by one into the sheepcote for the night. When all the sheep are safely inside the sheepfold, he will lie down in the opening so that nothing can come in the only door to harm the sheep.

The Shepherd always protects The Sheep!"

been there, done that also

We went to two cranberry (fests) festivals in Wisconsin for vending also.  The first one was to Warrens, Wi. It is a real nice festival and this year was their 40th anniversary I seem to recall so they had special things going on.  They always have a parade and the marching bands that come from around the area are wonderful to see and listen to.  This year I actually saw some of the cranberry bogs. 

The bogs did not seem to be flooded yet but I did not get close enough to take a good look... again pictures from the car...good grief, do we never get out of that car?

Sorry for the poor picture quality.  I did not see the two guys standing in the cranberry bog trying to sell cranberry on tv!

The next cranfest was up at Stone Lake, Wi and it was a cool windy day with a passing snow shower that came down like miniscule hail balls.  It lasted probably a minute total.  There was all kinds of beautiful landscape of colored leaves, so....out comes the camera again.  Thank goodness it survived the punctured coca-cola can in my purse that we had to deal with out at Warrens.  Ugh, everything dripping wet and thank goodness that thiry-one bag was washable and turned out good as new.  I still have to check my camera's battery charger.  Back to the lovely scenery at the blur of travel speed.

I could not get enough of the lovely scenery even though leaves had already started to disappear.

One more for those of us that love fall...

Beautiful. Funny how God has given us this wonderful season of gorgeous colors and lovely weather to boost us as we head into the darkening days of the up-coming winter season.  I like to push fall as long as I can and just keep working on things outside until the snow finally turns us inside to hibernating by the fire in the evenings with the quiet whirl of the spinning wheel.  God has blessed us so, hopefully he is blessing you also.
