In The Shadows…

Do you see our new woodpecker? I was playing with the new settings on my camera and got this photos. I thought it was neat how the bird looks like a part of the branch and blends in to the black of the branches. It reminds me of a sermon I heard on people talents and how some people are good at being in the forefront … Read More In The Shadows…

Winter Barn…

One of the roads hubby and I drive on when we just need to get out and drive has this old barn on it. I am not sure what it is about it, but it appeals to my old-time senses. I just can imagine all the crops, animals, people, and season it has seen. What stories it must hold 🙂 It just gives me hope that somewhere there … Read More Winter Barn…

Rainy Day Walk…

We went on a walk in the rain yesterday… it was a cold day, but we all needed to get out to a new location and take a walk. Baxter was quite observant… And Chase was running all over exploring… We then came home to homemade turkey noodle soup I had made from leftover from thanksgiving. I included crusty garlic bread for the men 😉 … Read More Rainy Day Walk…

Some of my favorite things (from the past few weeks)…

I was looking over my photos I got downloaded and saw a few that made me happy so I thought I would share. So if you don’t know my birthday was a few weeks back and hubby took me to see War Horse at the Kennedy Center. I loved the ceilings of our theater… I thought they look like the palace of a king … Read More Some of my favorite things (from the past few weeks)…

We got a tree…

We have a family tradition that has occurred since I was a child and hubby and I continued since we met… We always go and get our Christmas tree from a local tree farm that we can cut down ourselves. When I was a child these trees sometimes would come off our own land, but usually from a local farmer who would let us … Read More We got a tree…

Today on black friday I am grateful I don’t have to go out if I don’t want to and that staying home allows me to spend more time with the boys 🙂 Tomorrow it is get ready for Christmas… get the tree, put up decorations, lights on the house, wrap presents, and my favorite part… decorating the tree while listening to the first Christmas songs for … Read More Friday… Black Friday…

Thankful Day…

Today is a day to be thankful… to count your blessings… to realize how good we have it despite our struggles… a day to praise God for all he has given us… a day… but why just a day? Why do we wait untill Thanksgiving or Christmas to tell those around us we love them, we forgive them, we need forgiveness, we are grateful… … Read More Thankful Day…

Found… sand art

I spent some time tonight looking over some older photos that my father-in-law downloaded from hubby’s computer as his crashed. So now I didn’t lose the photos 🙂 I was looking over the photos from hubby’s and my engagement weekend and came across some photos of sand art that was on the beach where we got engaged… There are so many things I remember from that … Read More Found… sand art

Otter Be Friday

Our Zoo tour continues with one of my two favorite animals… The Otter 🙂 They are so cute and friendly and when I was little I imagined swimming with the otters and being like them. They are so graceful and fast in the water and I have always been fascinated by them. At the DC zoo there are two kinds of otters… The first … Read More Otter Be Friday

Builder Beavers

Moving along in our Zoo tour we come to a water-loving animal the beaver… There were two big beavers there and they had a huge dam that they were building on. They are such interesting creatures and more fun to watch then you would think.  I hope you are enjoying your tour of the DC Zoo… More to come 🙂

Toucan’s Can

I saw this guy while at the zoo… He was so bright and vibrant in color it was such a good picture opportunity. I am still keeping my weekend in mind as I go throughout this week as it was so much fun. I also think I have to store up memories like this as when hubby and I get our farm dream these opportunities will be … Read More Toucan’s Can

Beauty of Flight

Some things that I see instantly make me think of the beauty of God… rainbows, beautiful days, a baby, and on my birthday trip to the zoo butterflies. It would seem that a creature like a butterfly with its delicate wings and big body would have a hard time flying as gracefully as it does… But somehow it does. I would also thing landing on something hard … Read More Beauty of Flight
