Snow to Sun

Two days ago it looked like this…Fence snow

Today it was sunny and looked like this…Red Barn

Funny how it can go from freezing to sunny… not to say it wasn’t freezing even though it was sunny the wind was blowing so hard. I was expecting to come home and find the chickens unable to move and frozen against the fence. They were all moving around when I got home and appeared happy so all was well. I hope the wind goes away. I have a lot to do outside next week. 🙂

Lights n Snow

Thought I would share some more pictures from before the snow storm at Christmas… I love Christmas lights 🙂 Lights

And during the snow storm…Snow Tree

I like how the camera got the sheeting snow against the tree 🙂 Hope you had a good Monday 🙂

Snow Tree and Snow Paws…

A little tired tonight, been at the vet with Chase this morning and Doctor with my Grandma all after noon. Thought I would share another snow photos from our place…Snow Tree

 

Lights of Gratitude…

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAGrateful for Christmas lights and having seen so many in my life… even the ones at the White House 🙂

White and Red Hot

Anyone know what this tree is? This tree is in the yard and I had never paid attention to it before. The other day I was out mowing and saw these white flowers on the tree. They look like little bells to me.

I think the next few days will be shorter posts as I have so much to do and catch up on inside. Today it was raining again. The garden was getting a nice drink and the chickens were out enjoying getting wet which seemed to make it easier to get the good bugs.

I love to watch the rain collect in little beads ont their feathers and then the shake like they are big bad ladies and the water is all gone. More and more the follow me around the yard and come when I call “here ladies”. I also found these red-hot pokers while visiting a neighbor and he let me take some photos 🙂

 This is the final countdown to Memorial Day weekend. We don’t have much planed as hubby has to work, but we will try to grill out on Monday. Any of you have special ways to celebrate Memorial Day?

And the sun came out…

Yesterday was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day… it is why I missed my 10 things Tuesday and will have to make up for it with ten things Thursday.

Today I am choosing to see the sunshine and white fluffy clouds…

I am also choosing to rest and try to de-stress. It’s so humid outside you are drenched as soon as you go out. The dogs keep trying to leave the fence to get to the cool ditch water, but even that is dried up so I put out their baby pool (Chase liked it, Baxter only would drink from it).

 

 

 

 

 

Still they choose to be inside with me sleeping on the cold wood floors. (Can’t say I blame them). We got my car back from the shop today 🙂 Yahoo no more rental. I want to try to remember to post Monday nights dinner I made… cauliflower soup. I took some to work to share with coworkers and it got great reviews. I made the soup Monday as it was still chilly and cold enough for soup… unlike today.

Driving on the back road earlier in the week, near where we saw the peacock, we saw some chickens running around. Chickens are so funny when they run, if you are in a bad mood and see a chicken run, you can’t help but feel better, at least a little bit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

When I went out to check on the chickens and eggs I saw our cherry tree has started to get some red cherries on them. These are sour cherries, but are still good. I will have to keep an eye on them to see when they get ready and try to beat the birds to them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am glad half the week is over and there is only two days till the weekend. On a positive note I am so happy to pass 200 followers so thank you to each and every one of you who visits me daily and has chosen to follow my little part of the world. I am so grateful you are helping to make my blog a success. Blessings today to you and yours.

Home Values and Love

The boys are trying to stay as cool as they can today. It tried to rain earlier, but that only made the humidity go up. I was out earlier this morning in the garden watering and checking on the plants. Things seem to be growing well. I wanted to water before it got too hot and caused all the water to evaporate.

When I got home the chickens were staying cool in the shade. (Aren’t “the girls” so cute 😉 )

I am in the mood for wadding… the river that runs through the battlefield we went to earlier in the week is calling my name…

This weekend promises to be a busy one. Tomorrow I am going over to the elderly couples house we bought the tractors from (https://seasonsgirl.wordpress.com/2012/04/15/look-what-my-husband-brought-home/) to help them clean. They asked me if I could come over to help them clean house once a month as they are having difficulty keeping up. Then hubby and I have errands to run, house to clean (for Sunday), and want to take the pups for a walk. Sunday we have my husband’s best friend and his family coming over for lunch and to hang out.

I have been thinking lately more and more about if our home portrays the values and beliefs we have. When friends, family, and their kids come over (we have had a lot of visitors over the last few months) do they see our belief in God, our love for others, and our love for each other. I am happy to say in most areas we are doing well, but there is always room for improvement. I think you can make New Years resolutions all year-long… so mine for the next few weeks is to see if there are ways I can create a warm, God valued filled, and healthy environment for those who come into our home.  Is there anything you do to create this in your home?

Thankfull Thursday…

Today I am grateful for my many blessings including my hubby and pups…

(Sorry today is a short post, I am tired after a very long day at work… pre Happy Friday.)

Hikes and Battlefields…

It was such a nice day, perfect weather for a hike. We went to a local battlefield and hiked all over that place. The dogs were in heaven… they LOVE to hike and walk.

 

 

 

 

 

 

My wonderful hubby carried my camera backpack so I coud have both my lenses at hand and it also allowed us to carry water and such.

When we first got to the battlefield there were some painters their painting a pond…

In the pond was a goose swimming, it almost looked as if he was posing for the painters.

A little further up the way and in the river there were two families of geese… Mom, Dad, and babies.

The fields had beautiful flowers in them today all in full bloom.

Then we went from the fields and river to the mountain. There were so many planes today…

The pups took a rest when we got back from the mountain on one of the old house steps.

On the way out of the battlefield we saw a bird we have a difference of opinion on what it was… any ideas?

I hope you all had a beautiful weekend with lots of fun and beautiful weather. Have a blessed week 🙂

Sunny day… Chasing the clouds away

Today was another sunny day! We had to take advantage of it as Mr. Weatherman says it’s going to rain all day tomorrow.

The chickens discovered today one of our fence posts had come loose and they showed us they know how to try to get out… that’s fixed now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was reading a post the other day (I’m sorry to say I forgot who it was – if it’s you let me know) the lady writing it was sharing her black dog loved to lay in the sun…

We have one of those...

My wonderful hubby finished weed eating the fence line… it looks good now.

The only problem today again was the wind. It blew all night and knocked things over. Today it is making sure it tries its hardest to blow the leaves off the trees in surprise attacks.

I worked in the garden and placed my new wire trellis I got to let my cucumbers climb on this year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My onions are coming up and I am so excited to see the fruits of my labor starting to grow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am so looking forward to the weather staying nice and being able to put the rest of my plants in so they can grow big.

 

Baxter and Chase wanted to wish all my followers, readers, and visitors a Happy Weekend !

P.S. Anyone know what song and from what show my blog title came from today?
