#GraceInSmallThings 1053: Unseasonable Warmth, a 90th Birthday, a New Purple, Cheese, and Hoar Frost

  1. The day was bright and warm enough to soften my spirit when I wasn't feeling so soft.
  2. It was my grandmother's 90th birthday this weekend, and I got to spend time with so many of my older relatives that I haven't seen in many years. I had forgotten how warm and funny some of them are.
  3. An entirely new shade of purple showed up in the sunset over the Saskatchewan prairie on Saturday evening.
  4. We found some Shropshire Blue today! You have no idea how much this cheese means to me.
  5. When we arrived back home after our weekend away, the trees were so full with hoar frost that even fine twigs shone thick white against the deep blue evening sky.
