The Glory of our Nation is Saddened today
Yesterday, Wednesday Oct 22, 2014, a guard was gunned down standing beside Ottawa's War Memorial at Parliment Hill. Today people live in fear, walk the streets and wonder, look over the shoulders and see our nation as a different world, one we are not able to understand.
Prayer and Peace for Ottawa and his family today.
We arrived in Mouse Jaw last night. I'm surprised to find the town has all their Christmas decorations hanging high above main street. This caught my eye in a bad way. From a little girl I learned that November 11th was a day of respect and we didn't decorate for Christmas until after that day. Now in the stores I see Christmas decorations and cards before our Canadian Thanksgiving (Oct 12).
We are visiting a few places today while here and hopefully that will change my outlook. As for yesterday it was an amazing drive and I'd like to share a few pictures with you if I may.
Deserted barns fallen into the ground
Plenty of dry fields and old homes that yelled out with years of history as we passed by.
Old barns hardly standing still in a storm
The sky turned blue
It was a beautiful day for driving
and knitting while we mosied our way

The sun is going down and that ends our day

Thank you for visiting my adventures today.
I hope you enjoyed this lovely part of Canada that we are still so lucky to be living in, God Bless.
