Love Affair

Today’s tale involves my love affair with a horse. Yes, a horse. Our neighbors went on vacation and asked me to take care of their horse while they were away. Prior to this, I had been going over to the barn and pasture every day with apples and carrots, showing this horse how much she … Continue reading Love Affair

All of life is Sacred yes all! …   … as it ebbs and flows within the highs and lows   in the receiving and the giving in the crying and the laughing   for it is when we fly high we rejoice to be alive   and when we fall low it is there … Continue reading Sacred

Encouragement

In leaning in close to encourage another   it’s as though Heaven itself conjoins with Earth. ~~~~ Every other year since I have been blogging, I would literally run after the colors seen in Fall. Hundreds if not thousands of pictures have been taken in past years. There is something about Fall that is so … Continue reading Encouragement

Getting There!

Friends, I am getting there. I’ve gone through 72 pounds (32.66 kg) of fertilizer so far. To give you an idea of what I’ve done, I followed the “per plant” directions which state for each established plant, work 1 cup of fertilizer into soil around drip line. To go one step further, I weighed that … Continue reading Getting There!

Bungled Bombshell

For about a week, my sister and I had been playing phone tag. Very unusual for us because we do our darnedest to return voice messages with a prompt phone call. We speak on a [gasp] landline phone, not a cell. My sister normally doesn’t turn her cell on so any texts I sent I … Continue reading Bungled Bombshell

The Station

In much need of my therapist, I opened the cupboard door, reached in, and firmly took hold of my sanity check. From there I slid open our glass patio door to sit on our picnic bench. All Summer I’ve wanted to shoot those who come to my Hummingbird feeder and I just yesterday got around … Continue reading The Station

Life!

What are the chances it poured yesterday, the very day I planned on watering all my gardens? In fact, I had a sprinkler on, timer set, as I went upstairs to change from my pj’s into the clothes for the day. By the time I came back downstairs, a matter of about I’d say no … Continue reading Life!

Math Help

Yesterday I asked Hubby to help me figure out how much total square footage I have in my gardens. Why? The instructions on the fertilizers I plan on turning into the soil this Fall, direct me to put a certain amount in the soil per 100 square feet. Hubby’s eyes came to life after I … Continue reading Math Help
