And back again…

I know I just posted about the looks of spring coming to our area. I was looking forward to some nicer weather and the wind to not be so much of a bother. But today I woke up to this… snow, cold, wind 😦 The ground, deck, and all were covered.   I guess old man winter is not ready to let go just yet. I … Read More And back again…

I Spy… Spring

A couple weeks ago or so it looked like this… The boys were out playing in the snow… And jumping on the logs that hubby has been splitting for fire wood… It was a winter wonderland. And today…. There were blooms and buds everywhere… Pretty little flowers… Of many colors… Buds pushing through for daffodils… So many flowers coming through the ground… The chickens were … Read More I Spy… Spring

Babies, babes, everywhere…

It must be at least getting a little close to spring (or it may be wishful thinking)…. but everywhere we went today there were baby animals running about… It may just me willing spring here and using these babes as my proof… Either way they are all cute when they are little 🙂 It was just nice to have a couple nice days of … Read More Babies, babes, everywhere…

Wrangling…

Since we got our Christmas tree I have been trying to get all the boys in front of it at one time to get a picture. Usually the two boys will be laying in front of it… Or the cat… but not usually all three. But if they are all in the vicinity, by the time I get my camera, one of them is … Read More Wrangling…

Wrapping all the way…

Traditions are important to every person I know or have come into contact with. Our traditions usually come from our families, but once you get married you usually come up with some of your own. One tradition hubby and I do is try to have all our gifts bought by Thanksgiving or the week after and then have them wrapped by this time each … Read More Wrapping all the way…

Fall brings Thankfulness

We have one tree out by the road that always is so pretty when it changes colors. We love this tree as it signals fall and is just pretty to look at. It also reminds me that Thanksgiving is on it’s way and it helps me to remember what I am thankful for. Even when it seems thing aren’t going your way, things could … Read More Fall brings Thankfulness

Wish… Deferred?

Have you ever had a wish or do you have a wish… a wish that is so deep down in your heart that you are afraid to say it out loud? A wish that you have wanted so bad and long that you stop saying it out loud and keep it buried inside. Something you have prayed for and hoped for that it seems … Read More Wish… Deferred?

Flowers and Gardens

It was a pretty place and a lot of indoor displays, more then I had seen in other gardens like this. Some had things in them. Other’s were mostly flowers. The had ones for kids. (you know I loved … Read More Flowers and Gardens

Anniversary Trip

This past week hubby and I went away overnight for our anniversary. Our neighbor agreed to watch the chickens and feed/let out the dogs so we could go. On the drive to Pittsburg, PA we went though the Gap. It has really pretty views especially in the morning hours. I am usually looking up at the mountains from home. Its a different perspective looking … Read More Anniversary Trip

Heat Wave… hopefully waving bye bye

It is so hot again… so hot I want to crawl into an ice bath. On top of the heat our AC went out yesterday and it’s not fixed yet. To keep cool we have al the fans going, extra floor fans on, were going for rides with the boys in the car with the AC going, and opening widows around the house where … Read More Heat Wave… hopefully waving bye bye

Belated Labor Day…

Sorry this post is late USA, but I spent my Labor day with hubby and the boys hiking and spending good quality time together… We had one of the best hikes we have had had in a while. Beautiful scenery, not too hard of a hike where we couldn’t talk and enjoy the scenery, but hard enough we got a decent work out. The dogs … Read More Belated Labor Day…

The Safari Park

While we were on our trip late May early June we did a lot of different things. I went zip lining for the first time with my nephew who graduated (Soooooo fun I would totally do it over and over again), went to different places I had never been before (like Branson), and got to go on other adventures including going though a Safari … Read More The Safari Park
