  • Some years are worse than others: I remember years when it was like a siege of lady beetles, other years a few popped up here or there.   Usually they sneak their way into our homes as a noticeable chill settles in.  On sunny days they cling to the screen door on the south side of where I write, but I need not worry about them as they sun themselves.  The ones that make it inside, however, meet my vacuum cleaner.

    Editor’s Note: The following story was submitted to The Spencer Magnet and highlights the efforts of a local couple to establish churches in rural Nicaragua.

    On Friday June 16th of this year, a small village in rural Nicaragua called Concepcion celebrated the opening of their first Catholic Church. The church was consecrated by the Monsignor Jorge Solorzano Perez, Bishop of Granada, Nicaragua and named St. Michael, The Archangel. The funding for this church was the result of several churches working together.

  • Fires in the fireplace or outside in the fire pit are intrinsically connected to our visions of nestling in for a long comfy winter. Let the winter bring its ice and snow if it wants. Inside, we have a fire to snuggle up to.

  • I like the winter landscape because I can see past the green canvas of summer into neighboring fields where horses and sheep graze.  I can see mistletoe everywhere, too, in the canopies of trees that line a spring fed stream.  Even in town, if you look up while you are sitting at a traffic light, I bet you’ll see some.  It is there if you look into the canopies of trees devoid of their leafy-ness.
