Olympics

Are you watching the Olympics? So many events going on and all on the snow or ice…. burrrrr. I love watching people compete and perform in sporting events, and all the new events this year is very cool…but since the ice storm here anything I watch that has to do with snow or ice just makes me cold. Still I am rooting for our … Read More Olympics

Shadow

The other day while driving with hubby to run errands we passed this house. I noticed something immediately about this house. The tree out front had cast a perfect showed on the front of the house. I also noticed how neat the snow looked, with different colors and textures in it. Can you see the tree shadow? I just thought it was such a … Read More Shadow

Snow… Snow.. Snow… Cold

The snow came down the other day. I was so happy to be inside (not happy to be sick, but grateful I didn’t have to go outside). The neighbors barn was barley visible in the snow. Our tractors were hard to see as well until the snow slowed down… It was a pretty snow and the coop roof was covered in a matter of … Read More Snow… Snow.. Snow… Cold

Oh Christmas Tree… O Christmas Tree…

How lovely are your branches. Without fail every year since hubby and I got married (and when I was a child) we have gone to get our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. This year was the same and the last few years my mom and step-dad have gone with us… which was great. We got to the tree farm about an hour before … Read More Oh Christmas Tree… O Christmas Tree…

A Purple Tree Day

The trees in our front yard are so pretty when they bloom. This purple flower tree is one of my favorites and today gave me a smile as I had to go back to work and was still sick (about 80%).  When I see the tree it makes me hopeful and happy. It makes me think of a simpler time, a time when the world … Read More A Purple Tree Day

Happy Earth Day…

It is earth day… a day focused on how we can help keep the earth beautiful that God made so long ago. It is hard to imagine how beautiful and clean the earth was when God created it. It is saddening to think of all the damage humans have done to earth. It is good to know at least now we can do things … Read More Happy Earth Day…

Dew

I woke up this morning expecting snow… All the weather channels said it was supposed to… Yet there was no snow instead this is what I saw on the trees… I can’t say I was disappointed. I really didn’t want snow today. I know I usually love snow, but I am ready for some warm weather so I can be outside more and get things … Read More Dew

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…

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

I am so excited to have a friend closer and I adore her kids (they have been featured in my posts before). Saturday morning before I go to help her finish unpacking I have to clean … Read More Keeping busy…
