True Joy

Oh I just wish I could have gotten a photo of the fog and mist rolling across the back field tonight… it was eerie and magical all at the same time. It almost hid the deer coming though and was covering up our view of the mountain. I stood there for a few minutes and just marveled at everything God thought up on this … Read More True Joy

Garden Goodies

My garden is in full bloom right now. I planted a little later then others in my area so as their gardens are dying, mine is still giving me lots of good stuff 🙂 This is what I have gotten so far this week… I have already canned 17 pints of diced tomatoes, three of cherry tomatoes, 15 jars of yellow tomato salsa, and … Read More Garden Goodies

The run…

Happy Sunday… it’s a rainy Sunday here, but at least the dogs got out  a lot this past week to play. They love to run and play and when they get a new place to go exploring. Here comes Chase…. Closer… Coming at full speed… He may not stop… Don’t run me over little one… Baxter got in on the action too…. He isn’t … Read More The run…

Attempts in Faith

I often ask myself what is faith? Is it something we tell ourselves, something we feel, something we know, or something we are given? I am still exploring this through the word of God. A friend of mine was of great encouragement in faith today and I am grateful to her. She constantly remind me that faith is just that.. faith… a belief we … Read More Attempts in Faith

Beautiful Flutterby Suprise

Every once in a while you get to be in the right place at the right time for the good shot. It’s even harder with animals and insects as they are always moving. I was blessed recently to get one of those moments. My mom was up the other weekend and walked to our mailbox. She came back in, had me get my camera, … Read More Beautiful Flutterby Suprise

The new little baby deer are all over this year and I just LOVE seeing them play… This little one was hanging out in the field with its momma the other day… The dogs have also been excited to see these little guys as they love to try to figure out what they … Read More Nature in the Field

Launching into something new…

So my hubby has encouraged me for a long time to do something with all the photos I take. He tells me all the time how much others could enjoy them. So with his prompting and research I have decided to launch a web site where others can see and buy my photos if they want. I will use the money to put in a … Read More Launching into something new…

Pyaying Mantis

Have you ever thought of why they called this insect a praying mantis?Is it because he looks as if his hands are folded in prayer? Is it because he appears much of the time to be kneeling? Answers.com say: “The mantis when in wait for prey which can be for up to a week its front legs are held in a prayer like position … Read More Pyaying Mantis

Chase and Other News

My poor Chase is sick… he has had a tummy ache and isn’t holding down much food today. I tried to give him some meds like the doctor said, but he didn’t like it. His gums are still the right color so they said that was good and he is drinking water. So far no issues in the last few hours other then low mood … Read More Chase and Other News

This little butterfly was a visitor of ours and its lovely blue wings matched my mood and also provided a momentary mood lift.What a pretty color blue 🙂 It is a metallic blue that seems to shine. She made … Read More Blue

The Buck

While out the other day on one of our drives we saw so many deer out. It was the beginning of the afternoon and there were deer around every turn… every time we turned a corner or went down another road… there was another deer. In one field we saw this youngish buck…He stood there for a while until he was done looking at … Read More The Buck
