Friends

It’s nice to have friends you can count on… ones that are really there to help when you need it. Ones who support you and give you really advice and care even if it’s not what you always want to hear.

It’s also great to be that kind of friend. Someone who is there for others when they need you, even if it may be an inconvenience to you.

Hope you have those kind of friend/friends in your life as well as being that kind of friend to others you care about.

Woodland Friends

While on my trip I came across some woodland friends…

bambi

I remember seeing the movie Bambi for the first time. I can remember most of my first experiences with Disney movies and I bet most of you can as well.

You can remember the characters, what you felt, and what your impression was of the movies as a child. Funny when you watch them as an adult you can have some of the same experiences as well as different ones. Sometimes an adult perspective can take away some of the magic if your not careful. 😉

What is family?

As I thought about family this past Easter I was reminded that family is not just the one we are born into. It is the journey of the people the Lord brings into our lives.

Its those special people who treat you like they are blood relatives (and sometimes better) and you feel the same about them. Its about the relationships we develop with those we call friends, but sometimes are more like family.

As hubby and I still pray and hope to be able to have kids of our own, I know I still have an important job to do with each and every child I come in contact with. Its my job to be a good Godly role model for them. To treat them with love and kindness. To point them in the right direction and help them to feel special.

And in the process I get joy back and that warms my heart. I hope you had a blessed Easter.

MIA to Fun

It has been a while since I have been on here. With such a rainy last year plus so many things we had to do… that doesn’t leave a lot of time for fun or taking pictures. This past week has been different. I got the chance to finally go somewhere and have some fun…

mikki minnie

Recognize these guys? My mom and I got to go to the spring garden festival at this place…

Epcot

There were a ton of beautiful topiaries and flowers all over the place. It was a beautiful time of year to visit Epcot and check out the sites. More to come…

I spy…

Look who I spoted out having a coffee and doing some reconnaissance work….

Kids better be good if he is out this early watching 😉

Sweet Sleepy Grayson

This is my sweet kitty last CHRISTmas time. He loved to snuggle and sleep on the CHRISTmas blanket by the tree.
We have had a hard time finding a tree this year. Our normal tree place doesn’t open till the 1st and our tradition has always been to get our tree the day after thanksgiving (any one else do this?). But this year hubby was working so we couldn’t go out. Then we we visited some other places they were either closed or didn’t really have trees to choose from. I know the Christmas tree industry has been taking a hit, but it has been obvious this year. Hopefully we can find a tree soon :/

Memories of September

Last September we were able to go to the lake for a little vacation with my folks. It was actually one of the most relaxing vacations since our honeymoon over 10 years ago. Our boys came. Our lab/healer mix wanted nothing to do with the water or boat. We barley got him on the double decker dock.

Yet our terrier mix Chase absolutely loved everything about the place… the lake house, the dock, the water to swim in, and especially the boat. He loved riding on the boat and we had to make him get off when it was time to go in for the day. He also loved watching the fish from the dock and using his life jacket to swim. For a farm dog he adjusted to being a lake dog quickly 😉

Late Summer Update

Our little piece of God’s earth is trying to keep up with the change in weather from bouts of rain to dry humid heat. The grass is good when we get some rain and the chickens love all the bugs…

Chickens

The birds are still having babies and one mom has taken over our smaller birdhouse…

Inside I am trying to keep up with the housework and animals coming in and out. Chase and Grayson are always under foot trying to be “helpful”. But I do love their company.

cat grayson

Its almost our favorite month… September. Hope you are doing well wherever you are 🙂

 

 

A look back cat

I was going though some old pictures last night and came across ones of baby Grayson…

Grayson duck

He had his 3rd birthday this month and I can’t believe he used to be this small…

Baby grayson sun

Any could fit in one of my hands when we first got him…

Baby grayson

He was such a small and snuggly little baby…

Grayson Christmas

And he has grown to be a long lean cat who isn’t really that big, but is pretty long 🙂

Grayson Big

He’s not super snuggly anymore except when he first wakes up or wakes you up in the early morning hours… but he is loveable, fun, and zany at times and we wouldn’t trade him.

Summer grass

I am so glad that the summer grass has come in and the chickens have plenty of fresh, green, healthy, grass to forage in.

Chickns grass

Happy chickens=healthy chickens=good eggs 😉
