Preparing for the Storm

The TV news is abuzz with pending hurricane Sandy…. It is projected to slam our area and we are getting ready. It always amazes me how city people and country people differ in how they prepare for a storm. You would think country people would freak out more and get more as they are not as close to stores, shops, etc. It always amazes … Read More Preparing for the Storm

Signs of Smiles :)

It smells like fall finally. 🙂 On my way home tonight I had my windows down and I smelled the leave and all the scents of fall. It was so nice after a long day. There are certain things that make me happy when I see them or smell them… the smell of fall, cookies baking,  a butterfly, a rainbow, a bible, my dogs, … Read More Signs of Smiles 🙂

Fall Sky…

I posted a photo similar to this in the spring, but got another this fall. We were outside tonight hooking up the trailer for my Dad to take to get the electric in the brakes fixed and the sky was just too pretty to pass up. I just love to look at a sky and can stop for a moment and see it as … Read More Fall Sky…

Bridge over calm waters…

Fall has finally started to arrive here in our part of Virginia. The leaves are changing and the weather has cooled. It is such a nice time of year outside of the bad storms we had last night. Today we had time for a nice hike after work and dinner. We went on a new trail and had some fun. The dogs seemed to … Read More Bridge over calm waters…

Memories of Fall

It was a rainy day today… despite the rain we got some things outside done in the rain. The weather can not stop you if you have things to do and animals to care for. The dogs came in soaked and had to get a good brushing to get the stink out. They had fun running in the rain though and it was fun to … Read More Memories of Fall

Where is fall ?

I miss spring… But I love fall. It is my favorite season… I just wish it would act more like fall. You know cool days, sun, and changing leaves. Fall so far has been either warm days or cold day… where is the happy fall medium weather? Today was a little better cooler in the morning, yet it got a little too warm for fall … Read More Where is fall ?


“I sought the Lord, and he heard me , and delivered me from all my fears” Psalms 34:4


If a cat could be deep in thought I think this is what it would look like… This is my friends cat (the cat of those precious kids you have seen in my posts). I just like the way the cat is looking out the window at the world. I wonder what he is thinking? A friend loves at all time. – Proverbs 17:17

Mommy Play

So this past holiday weekend I got the privilege to watch these two cuties while their mom and dad were out-of-town… We spent our time at the zoo, playing with the dogs and chickens, and reading. I got a little more practice playing mom with a 48 hour shift. Their puppy Lester also came along to be watched. Baxter and Chase had to learn how … Read More Mommy Play

Miscaculation and Many Projects

This past week you may have noticed an absence of my posts… well hubby and I took off some time from work to get projects done around the house and in the yard. We had a lot of help from our Supervisor Chase… He made sure things were done up to his standards 😉 The first project we tackled was the kitchen floors. The … Read More Miscaculation and Many Projects
