State Fair Barn Visit

In September we went to our State Fair. I have gone to the state fair in this state every year since we moved here,  except the year I got married and last year I wasn’t able to either. Instead of mom and dad going with me, now its usually mom, step-dad, and if I’m lucky hubby, if he is not working. They also moved the location of … Read More State Fair Barn Visit

Never ending snow…

More snow today… More predicted for Wednesday and Thursday… I think the Olympics have caused the excess snow this year to keep us all in a Winter Olympics mood. At least the bird are enjoying full feeders and this woodpecker is a frequent visitor. He seems to like the soot blocks best. Bad thing about the snow is it is covering all the ice … Read More Never ending snow…

Slow Melt

While most of the south is beginning to recover from the snow… the snow here is sticking around from last week… The sun has finally come out today and it’s melting some of the snow off the tractors and the road is mostly clear… The picnic table could use some work though… I guess it will just take time and a little more sunshine… I’m … Read More Slow Melt

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

Flower and Garden Festival

Yesterday my mom and step-father came up for the local Flower and Garden Festival held in a couple towns over from us. It was a sunny day, but again that old wind showed its cold breath. It was warmer when the wind was not blowing, but when Mr. Wind came around you needed a warm jacket and hat. Luckily the sunshine showed all day and … Read More Flower and Garden Festival

Soft Breeze

Today was a productive day despite my migraine. We got a lot done that I will post about later this week 🙂 Wow it was a busy day… but a beautiful one. It got up into the 70* and at times was a little warm… but I didn’t mind it was a nice change from the cold and windy weather. The wind today was … Read More Soft Breeze

Snow to Sun

Two days ago it looked like this… Today it was sunny and looked like this… 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 … Read More Snow to Sun

Quite the snow…

So when we got up at 4 AM there was snow on the ground and more coming. Hubby decided he was going to stay home from work as it appeared quite icy. Around 7 AM I called my work weather hotline and we were closed so I snuggled back in bed too. About 30 minutes later the dogs were ready to be up so we … Read More Quite the snow…

River Sunset

It’s the end of a week… the dogs are snoozing on the chair, hubby is in bed, and I am trying to get though some magazines that are from months ago. After a long week it is nice to be able to sit back, leave the rest of the chores for tomorrow, and connect with my blogging world. How was your week? Any new … Read More River Sunset

Beauty at sunset

It was a nicer day today and the sky at sunset was pretty with all the blues and purples… The sky is always so pretty over our neighbors barn. I love to look at the clouds moving over the mountains and the fields towards our house. It is neat to see how the cloud move the colors along 🙂 It was a nice reminder … Read More Beauty at sunset


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

De Planes…

Hubby at the museum looking at all the planes. I liked the light squares in the photo and the light dark contrasts. The museum I spoke of yesterday had a lot of neat planes that if I heard right were actually flown at some point. It would be worth going back to when the weather is warmer and we can see the outside exhibits more.
