This post is rather picture-heavy, but bear with me and read to the end.
As y'all know, I love the scenes presented to me from the windows of our home.
I love it in the evening, when the sky becomes alive with so many shades of orange,
and pinks, and purples.
I love the scenery in the morning,
when the village is silhouetted against the rising sun,
and the sky can seem like it's on fire.
Or later in the afternoon, when the sun's glow is more gentle and the rays soften the landscape.
Even Jackson seems to appreciate the beauty from time to time.
I love it when the evening is calm, and a busy day melts away with the peace and serenity that follows the busy-ness of a hectic day.
And I love it when I am fortunate enough to see the heavens light up, not only with the countless stars up above, but with the dancing colours of an aurora.
In all the years we've lived in this house, I have never, ever tired of gazing out our kitchen, our lounge, and our family room windows.
How could one tire of this kind of beauty?
Beauty that never stays the same,
but changes with every passing minute.
Beauty that reflects God's glory and His promises
Of course, you all know that I love these sights, because I go on and on about them constantly. Those of you who follow Homeschool on the Croft's Facebook page know all too well how much I love them because you are inundated (constantly) with photos of 'this morning's sunrise', or 'this evening as the sun set', or 'today's Atlantic waves crashing over the Butt'.
Yes, I have been known to go on and on about the beauty of our surroundings. And the reason I've spent all this time in this blog post going over some of these previously posted photos is that I have to tell y'all that soon, this will no longer be the view out of my kitchen window.
Indeed, I have no idea what I will see out of my kitchen window. All I know is that it will not be the Atlantic, it will not be Habost Machair, it will not be the Butt of Lewis lighthouse and Eoropie. We are moving.
There, I've said it. Written it, even ... which makes it seem even more sure. The Builder has work on the mainland. He is leaving in the next few weeks, and we will all leave here once our house is sold. I'll speak more of it over the next wee while, but for now ...
... anyone want to buy a house?
(I can recommend the view!)
